Orthosil Silicone Dental ‘Wax’ ~ Bulk Pack of 50 Boxes
Orthosil can be used on any areas of braces which are cause pain or discomfort (protruding brackets and wires).
Some patients find their mouths adjust and they can mange without wax over time. If this isn’t you then here’s a great bulk buy of 50 boxes of Orthosil for you to stock up and save!
Orthosil is an alternative to traditional Orthodontic Wax; it’s made from silicone which some patients find makes it more effective than standard wax. If you’re new to braces we’d recommend trying both Orthosil & Orthodontic Wax before stocking up in bulk.
How to Use Orthosil
Break off a piece from one of the sticks. Roll the Orthosil between your fingers and push it onto the area of the brace which is causing you pain.
IMPORTANT : The brace and Orthosil must be really dry for it to stick.
Put the Orthosil over and behind the bracket to give it something to adhere to; don’t try and stick it to your teeth!
- Medical grade silicone, unscented & unflavoured
- Waterproof and transparent
- Available in coloured plastic boxes; colours may vary
- Box dimensions : 5.5cm x 3.5cm x 1cm
- 50 Boxes of six strips of wax supplied per order
Silicone does not break down as quickly as wax so Orthosil can last longer than traditional wax.
Remove the Orthosil before eating or brushing your teeth; unlike orthodontic wax, you can then re-apply the same piece of Orthosil.
Orthosil is unscented and transparent; even less noticeable in your mouth than clear orthodontic wax.
It’s made to be use in your mouth so it’s non-toxic and won’t be dangerous if any is accidentally swallowed.
Always remove before cleaning your teeth as it will stick to the toothbrush bristles. It is safe to sleep with Orthosil on your braces.
