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.


Schedule an appointment!  

Don’t hesitate to call our office and come in to get this fixed.


It is our goal at Edina Orthodontics to make your experience with your braces the most comfortable as possible.  This includes helping ease the pain of poking wires on braces.
