Wondering how others handle the "archwire removal for cleaning" issue.  My personal bias is that in most cases the hygienists can scale around the brackets, bands and wires just fine. It is a little more work but not enough to justify all the hassle of removing the wires. The hassle I am referring to is all the extra shuttling around for the patients/parents and logistical problems between offices. I realize that there are exceptions but it seems to be becoming more of the rule. Interested in your thoughts.
