Braces Explained: Detailing Wire Bends

In this video, I will be talking about something that you may notice later on in your treatment when you see your orthodontist bending wire. Wire can be bent by orthodontist for a number of reasons but the reason I’m going to discuss in this video is for “finishing and detailing bends.” Braces can be put on as ideally as possible but once all your teeth are lined up, your orthodontist may notice that a few teeth need minor adjustments. Brackets can either be repositioned to achieve the ideal goal or the wire can be bent to achieve the sought after result!

In this video, I discuss two different types of detailing wire bends: a “step” bend and a “z” bend. The example I use in this video is a step-up bend to help a lower premolar that is too intruded be extruded to its ideal position. Also I demonstrate a z-bend on a premolar that is tipped too far forward (or mesial). This will correct the root by moving it more towards the front of the mouth and uprighting the slanted crown

As always, if you have any questions or comments, please feel free to contact me via the comments below!

See you next time!

So is it normal that my ortho put bents going down on my front teeth? I notice they're lower now and it's more noticeable that my left front tooth is bigger than my right one

I have braces as an adult and my orthodontist put a “reverse curve” on the bottom wire. What exactly does that mean and what is the purpose? Thank you

Thanks for all the informative content in your videos. I just have a quick question. My orthodontist told me that I would be starting detailing next visit and I was wondering how long this process normally takes.

my sister is nearing the end of her treatment and realised that her #11 is slightly tipped and she's super uncomfortable seeing that. I thought it was unsalvageable at first but thank god for your video, now I know it can be fixed!🙌🏼

I like how he said that these bends are supposed to be towards the end of treatment but I’m only like 7 months into my 2 year treatment and I have 3 bends on my bottom wire and 1 on my top wire

hi doc love your videos, I have been in treatment for 6 months now and in my last appointment the orthodontist changed my wire from niti to stainless steel, all of my teeth were straightened out and aligned perfectly except for one tooth, the lower right lateral incisor which is still a little bit rotated, I mentioned it to the doctor and she said It will straighten with time, but I'm worried because I don't feel it's getting better, is it possible to to rotate a tooth at the end stages of treatment? Or with a wire that is not niti? Also all of my lower incisores are angled at about 120 degrees because I have a big tongue that constantly pushes them out, my question is it possible to make them more vertical? Like 90 degrees? And if so how?

thanks for your help

Doc, i'm on my 4th mo of treatment with 4 extractions. They use buccal tube on 1st molar as anchorage. But now the top left molar developed mesial tipping and it disturbed my occlusion (new crossbite, cant chew on the left side). How to fix this and can the molar get corrected later on?

I’m in like the beginning of my treatment well maybe like 2/6 of the way done, and my orthodontist curved my wires on the bottom teeth what does that mean? I have a deep bite from braces. Also I have elastics but the elastics are just jacking my deep bite bigger?

Idk if you are going to see this but here I go. I am going get braces or transparent something (Idk the English word for this sorry) soon and I am really afraid which one should I choose... Again I am really afraid of the pain of the braces I am REALLY sensitive :( MY FIRST WORRY IS I have slightly rabbit teeth and my teeth (jaw? The U shape the jaw has) is little inward in the middle and I don’t really think if the braces can fix this weird shape therefore I barely have any space for my tongue ! So I am extremely worried. I don’t want to get any treatment for disappointment it is not CHEAP in this country ( approximately 8000 in my currency approximately 10.666 bread ok I am in a crisis ) What I am saying is I am not that rich and I want to have a straight teeth :) So... Should I get braces or just be in a crisis about how should I avoid getting it because I am dumb ? Huh... (edit:missing word)

Are wire bends suppose to straighten out? Like I have a significant step down (or up?) and I don’t think it will straighten out within a month (projected braces off/removed).

So does a step-up on the mandibular arch bring a tooth up? If so, what does a step-down bend do on the lower arch? Or is that not a thing like physics wise?

Right now my wire on my maxillary arch looks like a step of steps going up on each side. Like on two and three, the wire steps up and up etc. Which way will my teeth move based on the steps?

Is it difficult to be accurate when you bend a wire? Like how do you know exactly how much to bend it and exactly what angle? Is there much margin for error - i mean can you get it within a range of accuracy or do you have to be super precise for it to look ok?

I have had my braces for 3 years and my front tooth i have a root canal that tooth needs to go down 1 milimeter to level out with the other. So my orthodontist told me today he was going to bend my wire theres actually pressure in that tooth havent felt pressure in that tooth in months im so excited i just hope it goes down completely he says my last resource may be tooth bonding i really dnt want that so i hope this bending helps this root canal front tooth move down my journey has been long and i go to all my monthly apt.😀
