The wax sticks that were given to you when the braces were put in should be used only 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 seven to 10 days, with the irritation (which often feels like a burning sensation on the lips and cheeks) gradually disappearing. During this period, try to avoid using the wax and allow your cheeks and lips to become more resistant. Use the wax only if you develop a canker.
You don’t have to worry about your orthodontic treatment. And if something seems strange to you, please call. We’ll be happy to answer any questions you have.
