Re: Help!! Braces & Cuts..Oouch!
Hi Get some chewing gum and place it on the bracket or wire that's cutting your gums. Call the Orthodontist that put your braces on and let them know that you are being all cut up and would like to be looked out. Sometimes if it's in the back of the mouth it means the wire is too long. Ask them if they can put a tube on the wire in the area that is cutting your mouth.
I hope this helps
