What should I do if the ending of a metal wire is causing irritation?
Try to push the wire away from the irritated area using a blunt object. If this does not help, cover the ending with wax, cotton or sugar-free chewing gum until you can visit your doctor. Cutting the wire ending should only be the last resort if no professional help is available. Apply Urgo Mouth Ulcer gel (available in pharmacies without a prescription) to the wounds inside your cheek.
