Orthodontic Wax – What is it?
Orthodontic Wax has been made to relieve discomfort caused by orthodontic appliances, like braces and wires, and to the auxiliary hooks, tubes and ligatures.
Orthodontic Wax is recommended by Dr. Nima Mir, for relief from the pain and irritation that can be caused by braces, wires and other orthodontic appliances. The wax protects cheeks, lips and gums by creating a barrier, that protects the inner mouth from sharp end of wires and other potential appliance parts they may cause irritation.
The wax comes in a small, convenient container that can be brought around with a patience, wherever they go. The wax can be applied easily; just make sure your hands are clean and your teeth are brushed. Remove the wax from its container and make a small ball out of the wax. Place the wax over problem areas and reapply as needed. Remember to remove the wax before brushing your teeth at any point of the day.
