Dental wax is a special type of wax which is produced from carnauba, paraffin or beeswax. They are commonly applied on cheeks, gums and lips for preventing them from getting sour because of coming in contact with the metal parts of braces. This wax will help to ease of the pain which might be caused because of fixing brace and it will also help your mouth to get accustomed with metal brace without any difficulty.
Dental wax also finds its application in preventing broken teeth to be in contact with sensitive areas inside mouth and acting as a barrier between both and protecting the areas like tongue, lips and gums from getting injured.
For doing this, you will have to dry the broken teeth to the maximum possible level and then take a little wax between your thumb and index finger, rub them for some time for making the wax warm and soft, then apply it on the damaged teeth. Once hardened, it will prevent that teeth and sensitive areas in mouth from coming in contact.
If you are wearing dental braces for the very first time, there is a high probability that you will be developing sore areas inside your mouth, mainly because the sensitive areas inside your mouth are not much familiar with outside materials like metallic brackets and wires. The areas around cheeks, gums and even lips will be affected easily because of these metallic brackets and wires of braces.
The best thing which can be done for reducing this pain caused due to dental braces is to apply dental wax on the areas which are having greater probability of coming in direct contact with the metal bracelets and end wires.
There are a lot of varieties of dental waxes available and the best type for applying in the case of broken teeth is the white dental wax itself. In majority of the cases, the shade of the teeth will be white only and white dental wax will be having the same shade as the surrounding teeth and it will be looking much better than using other wax types.
