Is this bend in my wire right

These teeth need to be extruded and my ortho said this bend in my wire will help to pull them down. He is always literally rushing between 2-3 patients at a time though and from what ive read, this bend is in the wrong direction and will actually intrude my teeth rather than pull them down?

My ortho did the exact same thing to my second front tooth , there’s a bend in the wire ? She didn’t explain anything to me about it though .. and my front tooth is slightly higher and kinda crooked then the other one .

Looks about right for extrusion of those particular teeth
