Wow, They hurt! I had a new heavie wire put in yesterday, and my teeth haven't hurt since I was banded. I don't know what size wire is on the top, but the whole (metal) bracket is filled. <<<<<end rant>>>>>>

Did you get a good look at the wire? If so, was it sort of square looking by any chance?

It could be a square wire (meant to improve your arch). Don't sweat it. Like all things brace related, the pain will ease

Hoping for an early release (good behavior)
