Description

GUM® Orthodontic Wax is recommended by dental professionals for relief from the pain and irritation caused by orthodontic appliances. GUM® Orthodontic Wax protects the gums and the linings of your cheeks and lips, providing a comfortable barrier from the sharp ends of wires and pointed appliance parts. GUM® Orthodontic Wax is also suitable for patients wearing partial dentures where wire clasps may be causing discomfort, sore spots, or abrasions.

GUM® Orthodontic Wax is packed in a convenient, small container that is ideal for both at home and outside the home use. Designed to fit easily into your pocket, purse, or backpack wherever you may go. The wax has a mint flavor for a fresh and clean sensation.

The wax is easily applied. First cleanse your hands and brush your teeth. Make a small ball out of the wax and cover each of the problem areas. Remove before brushing and between-teeth cleaning. Reapply as needed.

These work perfectly on my partial to block food from getting between the metal frame and clasps. It was easy to mold and smoothen out the wax in those areas with my fingertip. No longer need to pick out the food particles out with toothpick.

I found this wax to be hard and difficult to keep on my braces. The “pre cut” pieces made it harder to use as I require more wax for myself. Also it has a funny flavor.

Grumble - 3 years ago, Verified purchaser
I can’t believe they get away with calling this a 35ct pack! They cut the sticks into little pieces! It’s five sticks just like you’d get at the orthodontist. Also the case is very hard to open, I’ll be transferring alllll 35 pieces to a different container.

At 77 years of age, and wearing a retainer, I really need this product especially for sleeping at night to keep my tongue from its attempt to remove that darn thing from my mouth. Gum brand, which I no longer can locate in any stores in my area, is the perfect relief and I am so very glad that I could locate it. I love this "new" version with the tiny precut pieces.
