any sort of bend in the wire can cause your teeth to move the wrong way. If it's pretty bad, I would go to your ortho. If I remember correctly, I went in for 5 minutes and they just snipped the wire where it was bent until the next appointment when they replaced it.

Early in treatment it's unlikely to have much impact. Push on the bend with your thumb and it will probably straighten.
