Orthodontic wax is a specially formulated dental wax that provides relief from the pain and irritation caused by orthodontic appliances. This formulation contains vitamin E for extra soothing protection.
Carmel orthodontic wax works by adhering to orthodontic appliances, including braces/wires, auxiliary hooks, tubes, and ligatures. It forms a soft barrier which protects the gums and soft tissues of the cheeks and lips from the sharp ends of wires and dental appliances.
Carmel Orthodontic wax is suitable for patients wearing partial dentures where wire clasps may be causing discomfort or damage to the tissues in the mouth.
