Try to bend thinner poking wires using the eraser end of a pencil.
Find the wire in your mouth that is poking you.
If it is a thin wire, get a pencil with a clean eraser.
Gently touch the eraser to the poking wire.
Push the wire gently to bend it.
Try to tuck the poking wire behind the arch wire.
Not only that, what can I use to cut the wire on my braces?
Pencil Eraser– Using a clean pencil eraser, you can gently bend the wire back to a more comfortable shape. This method may not work for archwires but is useful for pushing in ligature wires on your brackets. Nail clippers and wires– This is an option that is only recommended as a last resort.
Having said that, why is there a bend in my braces wire?
The orthodontist bends the arch wires in the direction he or she wants your teeth to move. Arch wires are made of material that will always attempt to move back to its original shape. As your teeth are straightening out, the wires will get straighter which will cause excess wire to stick out behind the braces.
What does a thicker wire on braces mean?
As you continue with your brace treatment you will notice that the wires used become thicker and more rectangular in shape. This is because these rectangular wires fit more snuggly in to the slot in the brackets, progressively moving the teeth in to their final position.
