Some helpful hints
If a wire is irritating your mouth, cover the wire with the orthodontic relief wax provided in your banding kit.
If a wire comes loose, you can tuck it in with a blunt object, such as a Q-tip or a rubber pencil eraser tip.
If you are developing sores in your mouth, rinsing with salt water will help the irritation.
