Orthodontic wax is a non-toxic wax made of natural substances like paraffin wax or beeswax. The wax for braces adheres around orthodontic wires and brackets to relieve irritated tissue and act as a barrier against rubbing.
1. Brush your teeth
2. Wash your hands
3. Take a pea-sized amount of wax
4. Soften the wax by squeezing.
5. Roll it into a ball and place it on the sharp poking surface of the bracket/wire.
It’s non-toxic so you need not worry.
