Dental Braces have a number of issues that could arise. Broken brackets, loose bands, sores in your mouth, and poking wires are just couple.
Pokey ArchwiresOne of the issues you could have with your Dental Braces is poking wires. The main wires are shaped specifically to fit around the arch into the bracket slots. Dental Braces move your teeth by applying pressure that comes from the archwire and guides the direction of the teeth movement. When it comes to poking wires there are couple of situations that could occur. Listed below is just one of those situations with instructions on what you could do to try and remedy the problem on your own at home

Main Archwire Out Of TubeThe main archwire is fitted into the slots in the brackets or through the tubes in which are the very back brackets with your Dental Braces. If the main archwire comes out of the tube the first thing you should try is putting the wire back into the tube with a pair of sterile needle nose pliers or tweezers. If you cannot reinsert the wire back into the tube the second thing you should try is placing a piece of special wax over the archwire that is out of place. If the archwire is long and poking you, use the special wax as well. If both of these techniques are unsuccessful then the wire can be cut with either sterile wire cutters or nail clippers, close to the back of the brace. Remember cutting the wire is only to be done as a last resort.
