I can usually bend a string a little bit, but when you need to bend it a lot, I have to use my other fingers to help push right? Well, the problem I have is when I do this (on the smaller strings, thus I am bending toward the ceiling), my fingers seem to jam up under the other strings. Because of this, when I release the bend, the others strings "pop" off of my fingers and ruin the sound. How do I prevent this?
get ur fingers under a little or press down bit harder? and nice pic lol(forum pic)

Practice mate, try different ways of doing it. I find it helps if you arch your fingers more and try to use your finger tips rather than the pad of the finger.

Sadly we have not shotguns and go around saying "Get Out of Mah Propertay!!"
I usually bend with middle and ring finger an rest my index over the other strings like a bar, but just muting them. No noise. Great success.

Try doing it slowly and gradually building up speed until you can do it in one fluid motion.
