what do i do if my wires from my braces start to get caught on my cheeks?
its the end of the wires on my top row of teeth. it hasn't always been like this. just recently they took my wires off, but not the brackets, so i can get teeth out. (they didnt extract teeth yet when i first got braces 6 months ago).

they are really beginning to get in the way of eating, the wax doesn't work because it just comes off. i always have to blow my cheeks up to get them un-stuck lol. they also start bleeding after a while and i hate the taste of blood x_x from what i can feel, it is about 5mm sticking out both ends.

should i make an appointment with the dentist to get the ends cut? or should i leave them and will they stop doing that after a while (i seem to have forgotten if they stop doing that D:)

thanks in advanced.

there isn't THAT much blood. but just when i put my finger where it gets hooked then look at it, that's when there is blood. but yeah, i can taste it, and it's gross :[

take them off

just drunk? All the Time?
get them tightened so they wouldn't hook on your cheeks, or you can get smaller braces. or you can get them under your teeth instead on on top of your teeth!

they'll cut them for you but for now just stick as much wax on them as you can , like 259872345 candles worth :)

Fly to your dentist. That must hurt. I know coz I wear braces too. Way to go.

get them to cut the ends off.
but yeah, that happens to pretty much everyone that has braces.
it happened to me all the time but i just lived with it.

you should make an appointment, cuz believe me they wont stop doing that

your dentist needs to adjust them...and you have to get the good wax...it always workd for me...but somethings not right here

you need to go to the dentis

i realize what your going through i got my braces off about a year ago and i got a perminant reatainer after that and it broke but only part of it broke off leaveing this sharp wire in my mouth but it was around dinner and i was starveing and i went and asked my sister if she had any wax from when she had braces and she said i just used gum so i tryed it and it worked just use a small amount of gum and stick it on the wire that is bugging you but remember this is a tempariry fix and you really really need to get those wires fixed

just make an appointment to get the wire ends cut. They're too long if the wires are getting caught. It only takes a few seconds so don't worry about bothering your dentists or anything :P

besides, you're the one who pays for the braces XD

Cori =)
I was in the same situation about a year ago. I went into my dentist and he cut the ends of the wire off and it felt sooo much better!! Definitly go see ur dentist!!
cori =)

Jagbir D
Yeah, same thing happened with me, just go back to ur dentist and get them cut, its the easiest way to solve ur problem, or just go to ur dentist and get them cut, like i did, i was too impatient. LOL

go to the dentist.
there will always be discomfort with braces, but you shouldn't be in that kind of pain.

Make an appointment to get them cut. My ortho was always very prompt to get me in and fixed up if something happened to go wrong with a bracket or wire. Hopefully yours is the same.

Chasidy S
Go back to the dentist.
Have them fixed

I had the exact same problem and I tried the wax and it kept falling off from it not sticking on the end of the wire. I know they say not to chew gum but I did (sugarless) and I stuck a piece of gum on the bracket and around the wire and it felt so much better! (I chewed the piece so it would stick)
Then eventually I went to my orthodontist and they cut it off and it only took 2 min at the most.

I hope I helped!!!! :)

go to a dentist and get the ends cut!
