Item Description

Got sore teeth? Bite Wafers for Orthodontic Braces help relieve discomfort when you get your braces adjusted. Chewing on the elastobyte wafer helps increase blood circulation in your teeth and gums, which in turn helps to reduce your pain and discomfort.

To use a bite wafer, simply put it in your mouth and clench the bite wafer gently and intermittently between your teeth. In other words, just bite on it, on and off. Do this 3 or 4 times per day for 15 to 20 minutes per time. Do not bite down so hard that it makes your jaw ache. Gentle pressure is better. Ask your orthodontist if you need more specific instructions. Remember to wash your bite wafer at least once per day to keep it clean. You can soak it in Retainer Brite or another retainer cleaner, if you wish.

Bite Therapy Wafers are sold individually and are available in four scents: Bubblegum (Pink), Cherry (Clear), Grape (Purple), and Mint (Teal Green).

Please note that this product is not returnable due to health regulations.

Bite wafers are an "old fashioned" tried and true way to help improve pain from braces. When you bite down on the wafer, it increases blood flow to your teeth and gums, which helps keep down inflammation and pain.

Once you use the wafer a couple of times does the flavor go away?
1 Answer
Demea, Thanks for your question! After you've used the bite wafer for a month or two, the flavor/scent will probably fade to some extent. Remember, they are mainly scented, not really flavored.

Would these work with expanders too?
1 Answer
The Bite Wafers are mainly meant for braces. Expanders sit at the roof of the mouth and might not touch the Bite Wafer when you bite down. You should ask your orthodontist if the Bite Wafers might be helpful for you.

Are these stiff, or are they gummy?
1 Answer
These Bite Wafers are the same as the ones that your orthodontist would give you. They are fairly stiff with small bit of "give." They are not gummy.

Great! Not as soft as I thought
Worth the price, wish they were a tad bit softer. The mint one is actually a bright green, do not like it.

Sweet relief!
I ordered these for my daughter. She really loves the flavor/scent of them and finds that biting them offers pain relief after her braces are tightened. Great product!

works but not what expected
I have a tendency to want to chew things when sitting still. Bought this hoping I could chew on it discreetly at work. I was expecting it to be more like a chewable retainer, but it is a very thin piece of plastic. It fits in my mouth but since it's between my teeth and not over them, I can't really close my mouth completely. But for only a few dollars, it works fine and I like the cherry flavor.

Great price for this helpful device
I had to trim these (cut off the outside half) to fit my small mouth so I could use them, but they cut easily and work as well as much more expensive splints/mouthguards from the drug store during the daytime. I use them while watching TV, reading, or at the computer, during the day to stop my grinding my back molars. I know they are marketed for pain relief from braces, but I have been using them for grinding and find them very helpful. I bought a similar device at the drugstore that cost me $30 and doesn't work any better!
ProsPrevents tooth grinding, can be used with braces and elastics (after trimming), easy to trim, pleasant taste, great price
ConsToo large for my mouth (but trimming is easy), not discrete so only used inside the house

These bite wafers are sooo helpful! My teeth don't hurt from my braces after I bite down on one of these wafers! I love them so much!

A great tool for your braces pain relief toolbox!
Just like you would press into a sore muscle through massage, these work by putting pressure deep into your bite. I have one in my desk at work and one in my wallet. I will chew on them during mindless tasks and while driving - I am always shocked at how well they work! They don't really taste but they do smell like the listed flavor. As an added bonus, these work great for pressing down loose wires!

My poor wafer...
I wear my wafer every night to give my teeth something to grind on besides my brackets. Its in shambles. I'm about to buy another one! FYI if you ship the bubblegum and grape it all tastes and smells like grape. I never tasted bubblegum.
Conswrong taste replace regularly

It didn't serve my purpose.
I bought this item thinking it was small enough to stick in my mouth and my brackets on my teeth wouldn't clink during the night and wake me up. The favor was nice but I thought it provided a different purpose than what I needed. Nothing wrong with the item just wasn't for me.
Merchant Response:Bite wafers are made to bite on to relieve pain from your braces. They are not a product that can be used to protect your braces. For that, we recommend the Bracket Jacket or one of the other lip protector products that we carry.
ProsFlavor was tasteful

Awesome wafers
A young employee from Publix told me about the wafers. I had asked her if it was too paintful the day she got them and told me about the wafers while she helped with my groceries. The same day i ordered them. My daughter received 2 sets on the day she got her braces put on. These wafers are great, it really helps. Thank you for making them. My daughter uses it to relieve the pain and pressure of her gums. I will always pass this learning experience to everyone I know getting braces.

Best invention ever!
I could not have made it through braces without these jewels! Upon leaving the Orthodontist office, place in mouth and apply pressure (as hard as you can stand) for about 30 minutes. Like magic, no pain at all ! I would advise this for everyone with braces!!!

They smell wonderful. Wished I had these when I was young and in braces. My daughter keeps them in her purse whenever she needs to bite on them.

Keep your teeth moving
My Orthodontist recommended I use a bite wafer several times daily. It makes my teeth and gums feel better. Pumps up the circulation to my teeth to encourage them to move faster. I bought bubble gum and grape. Nice flavor. Not a strong artificial taste. I wil buy these again. Fast shipping. Very good prices.

Drug Free Pain Relief
I love these. They work so very well. The bite wafers offer just enough resistance. They aren't too hard or soft. The bite itself is pretty intense, but not painful. But once you are done biting the pain is pretty much gone --especally if you massage your gums afterward.

I found that I would use the bite wafer heavily for a day or two and then not need it until more work was done. Using the appliance has also reduced my tendecy to bite lips, cheeks, press teeth with other teeth because all of the aformentioned were intended to stretch gums or move teeth in a response to pain.
ProsVery effective. Cheap, small and portable. Easy to clean.
ConsDrool. Um, everywhere. Not for use in public places. Mostly because of the drool, but also I've caught myself making akward faces and moaning softly while biting.

Not particularly helpful for me
It felt good to use the bite wafer while I had spacers in for two weeks. However, I have not found it at all useful since getting my top and bottom braces on. I guess I hope at some future point in my treatment I will find the bite wafer useful and will be glad I hung onto it.

Bite wafers
These really helped with the tooth pain that comes from tightening braces. And they came quickly. I thought the shipping was a little steep but it was worth it. I wish the orthodontist had given one out in the goody bag.
ProsEasy to clean.
