OrthoSil brand silicone strips help to protect your lips and gums, keeping you comfortable. OrthoSil lasts longer and is softer and more malleable than traditional dental wax. It is unaffected by enzymes in the mouth and will not crumble. Unscented, unflavored. The containers come in assorted colors, with instructions. (Sorry, we cannot offer you a choice of container color). Your brackets must be completely dry for Silicone wax to adhere properly. It can be taken off and re-used after you brush your teeth.
How is OrthoSil different from regular dental wax? Here are some differences:
1. It is made of silicone, not wax. Silicone does not break down and crumble as quickly as regular dental wax, so it lasts longer in your mouth.
2. You can re-use it within the same day. For example, you can re-apply the same strip after brushing your teeth.
3. Unlike dental wax, to use OrthoSil your brackets must be totally dry
for the product to adhere properly. This sometimes takes some trial and error. Most people love the product once they get the hang of applying it.
OrthoSil is sold in economical packs of 10 for $9.99 (that's less than $1 per container!)

Orthodontic silicone is different from regular dental wax. The brackets of your braces need to be totally dry for the silicone to stick. Honestly, some people simply can't seem to get the hang of using it because they can't get their brackets dry enough to make the silicone stick. But those who do tell us that they love it and prefer it to dental wax. So please understand that it may take a little trial and error at the beginning to get orthodontic silicone to work for you.
Orthodontic silicone has many advantages: it can be re-used, it lasts a lot longer than wax, and it doesn't break down and crumble as easily as wax. Just smoosh some onto the bracket that is causing irritation, and it forms a barrier between your bracket and your gums. The silicone we carry is high quality medical grade, and made right here in the USA.
