Poking Wires

If you are experiencing discomfort from poking wires, there a few quick fixes that can bring relief until your next appointment. Dental wax will create a firm barrier between the wire and your gums. Additionally, you can use the end of a Q-tip or the eraser side of a pencil to push or bend the wire away from the gum tissue. If the poking wire is in a hard-to-reach place, you may need the assistance of a friend or parent.

Loose Brackets or Wire

Thankfully, loose brackets or wires should cause no discomfort. This may occasionally occur from the adhesive lifting that holds the bracket in place. Most often, this happens from eating foods that should be avoided. Loose brackets and wires can typically wait until your next visit for repair.


If you suffer an injury to your mouth, immediately apply ice and schedule an appointment with your dentist first. Your dentist will have access to medical equipment for tooth and gum tissue repair that an orthodontist doesn’t typically have. After your mouth has received the necessary treatment from your dentist, you can visit your orthodontist for repairs. If your mouth has suffered extensive injuries, apply ice and seek medical attention immediately.
