Ouch, this must clearly hurt. I'm not a doctor, so please take my advice with a grain of salt. If it's stuck and you don't have wax anymore, I'd remove it entirely and then go to the orthodontist as soon as possible. I had a similar issue before and removed the protruding wire, also making sure I get back to my doctor as soon as his office was open. Next time ask to be given a small box of dental wax at home. I had 2 of them back in the day, so at least I wouldn't run out of it.
