How can I stop my braces from cutting me? Plz help!

I got my top braces 3 days ago and now the inside of my cheeks are cut and scratched up, and I've tried wax but it won't stay on, and it hurts to. Any tips?

If the wax is not helping, you should make an appointment with your orthodontist immediately. Let him cut the wire a little and ensure that, they are not hurting you before you leave. Rinse out with salt water, to help the sores heal fast.
