How to ease the pain of poking wires on braces – Edina Orthodontics
See If You Can Push It Back Into Place
Sometimes you can just use a finger to push it back into place. Other times, you can guide the wire back into the tube.
When In Doubt, Wax It!
This should be able to blunt the wire comfortably until you can come in and get it fixed professionally.
Bend The Wire To Guard Against The Pointy End
Usually, you can curve the wire into a position where it’s resting against your gums or teeth.
