The special properties of Kemdent Ortho wax make it perfect for protecting your gums from the metal edges of braces. The wax is solid at room temperature, but can be softened and shaped by the warmth of your hands. Smoothed onto braces, it sticks to them and creates a buffer between the brackets and the gums. Dental wax remains smooth while in the mouth, and harmlessly flakes away or peels off as it breaks down.
Box of 50 cases.
Each case has 5 wax strips.
Whether you're protecting your gums from new braces or sticking down a piece of protruding wire, the procedure for applying dental wax is the same:
1. Wash your hands
2. Brush your teeth where you want to apply the wax
3. Pinch off a piece of wax about the size of a small pea
4. Squeeze until it softens and roll it into a ball, then flatten the ball slightly
5. Gently push the wax onto the problem area of the braces
