I've had braces for a couple months now and when I first got them they gave me wax. How the hell do I use it or more importantly, what is it for?

The wax is there for anywhere that your braces scratch the inside of your mouth. If your cheek is being torn up, glob a stick of wax to the offending section of braces, and then instead of rubbing against jagged metal, your mouth can rest easily on a smoother surface.

If any part of your braces are cutting the inside of your mouth or are poking you, you tear off a small piece of it and put it on the braces where they're hurting you.

Wax is used for like, on the weekends, if you have a wire poking you, you stick it on the wire in the back
I have braces too =]
So, take a piece and then stick it where the wire is poking
You're not brutal.

its to prevent the braces from scraping the inside of your mouth, but I find they're just annoying and you swallow them occasionally

I had a pallet expander, and an impacted cuspid.

Luckily, I had them only on for 5 years, and boy was it worth it. Girls LOVE my smile.

I had braces for a while, I actually got them off before my friends started getting them on.

One thing I can say I'm happy about is before I had braces, I used to snore, and ever since I had them, I don't. Palette extenders, you painful yet genius bastard.

I had braces for 8 years. I had the largest overbite my orthodontist had ever seen. He gave me what was called a Herbst device that brought my bottom jaw forward and my top jaw back. My mouth kicks so much ass now.

I sadly didn't wear my retainer enough after I got my braces off. A long-term decision I still regret. My bottom teeth sit just a bit too far back. But oh well, there's Invisalign for a reason, I won't be stupid enough to make the same mistake twice.

Quote by lounge act
I used to use tons of wax but now I'm used to it. Every now and then my teeth scratch my mouth like crazy, such as right now. I would use the wax but oh well I guess I'm just hardcore. I also chew gum with them, oh yea... I must be hardcore


I'll bet you ride your bike without a helmet. Goddamn you're hardcore!

I remember the wax! Good ol' wax. It saved my mouth a few times. Savour the wax, my friend! You'll need it some time down the road.
It's difficult to win unless you're bored.

Its semi helpful


Dont swallow it


It really saved my balls when my braces broke.
