This symptomatology which is commonly associated with fixed orthodontic treatment, may have a negative impact on the quality of life of the patient and may cause absences from periodic appointments. Interdisciplinary orthodontic treatment has a clear positive effect on psychological, functional, social health but also involves pain and discomfort, at least in the early stages or until the adaptability of the body occurs. The use of NiTi archwires during the first stages of treatment provides the development of physiological forces, but depending on each patient pain threshold, dental pain is perceived.
