so like a pair of scissors folded back on it self that would open facing the direction of the handel instead of away like a normal pair?

so my daughter got a mouth guard molded around her braces.
they won't come off.
I cannot bite into it from the front at all. but I could grab a bit off the back and get a pair of scissors on it and start the cut, but as I move farther up I can't get an angle on it.

I was just wondering if they made scissors that cut towards you instead of away.

waiting for the orthodontist to open.

Andy, if you had something like that you'd hurt yourself.

I'm not sure that any of my tools would work. You would likely need to cut down from the top but going very slowly so you don't get into the teeth or braces.

I'm sure it's miserable but you're better off waiting for the dentist. If it's urgent then take her to the ER.
