Braces with severe overbite

I got my braces on yesterday and so I am still sore. But since I have such a severe overbite, on each side on one tooth (third from the back) they had to put this composite stuff on there (forgive me, I can't remember the orthodontic term) so my top teeth do not force my lower braces off. He had to put quite a bit on my teeth and I am having difficulty chewing... I sometimes feel myself chewing weird and tapping my bottom braces with my upper teeth.... oh and I was also told I have a slight crossbite in the back as well.

Will my chewing get better as I get use to these composite things in my mouth? He said they will wear down after time...

Thanks in advance
 
I'm not an orthodontist but I'd guess that things will feel better in a day or two.

Thank you!..I obviously can't count, but it's actually the 2nd molar from the back.


Thanks again:)
