Wax sticks

The wax sticks which were given to you once the braces were placed only need to be used if your cheeks or lips become irritated. If this discomfort continues, please let us know so we can make the necessary adjustments. There is usually a period of adaptation during the first 7 to 10 days and the irritation (which often feels like a burning sensation on the lips and cheeks) will gradually disappear. During this period, try to avoid using the wax since this will allow your cheeks and lips to become more resistant; use the wax only if an ulceration forms on the tissues.
