Wax: A Great Temporary Fix for Braces with Poking Wire

April 13, 2015
Randy M. Feldman D.D.S, M.S., Chief Smile Officer of Feldman explains how to temporarily fix a poking wire from your braces in this video and blog.

It’s not uncommon with braces, you’ll have a broken wire, a loose wire, or a wire that pokes out the end. These can poke and irritate your cheek.

The best way to remedy that until you can get in to the office and have it clipped is go ahead and use a little ball of wax. You ball up a small ball of wax, just like in this video, and put it right over the offending area. Push it down, and then once it’s down, go ahead and lick your finger and pat it on. That will give you a lot of comfort until you are able to get to the office and we can clip the wire there.
