Sharp Ligature

Orthodontic Sharp Ligature

The fine wires sometimes used around the brackets may move when eating and begin to bother your cheek. These can usually be redirected away from the soft tissue by carefully using tweezers or the rubber on the end of a pencil. If you can’t get it comfortable contact us to make an appointment. Meanwhile you can cover the wire with something that allows for temporary relieve such as a small piece of wax, cotton wool, sugar free chewing gum or plumbers tape.
