Tips and Advice on your Orthodontic Wax

When you first get your braces or after an adjustment, you may feel sharp edges or small projections that are difficult to get used to. This wax relieves wire & bracket irritation.


  • Simply pinch off a small piece and roll it into a ball the size of a small pea.
  • Dry off the area first as the wax will stick better.
  • Flatten the ball and place it completely over the area of the braces causing irritation. Press it around the part and smooth it with your fingers.
  • Continue to brush your teeth even while using wax.
  • Ortho Wax is harmless and can be applied to your braces as often as is needed. If you swallow wax it will not harm you!
