Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Arch bar is one of the tools commonly used with the aim of fixing or keeping a certain structure in position during the healing process. Arch bar is generally given to those who have an accident in the jaw area.
Regarding your question, pain is often not a sign of recovery, but rather a sign of a certain disease. In your case, the pain can arise from an injury that has not fully healed, it could be due to an infection, improper installation, or misplaced for example due to being hit, chewing on food that is too hard or the like. But which one represents your condition, it can only be known by doing a direct examination.
So as we suggest, you should check your condition directly with the doctor who treated you so far and convey that your complaints have not improved. Your doctor will later evaluate and find the origin of the problem from there. Handling will depend on the results of the inspection.
Meanwhile, keep taking your medication regularly, and if the medicine runs out, you can take over-the-counter pain relievers by reading the rules of use listed, and rinse with warm salt water. So, hopefully answering your question.
