Item Description

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!)

Please Note: Ortho-Sil is silicone-based. If you have never used a silicone-based wax product before, we strongly suggest that you try one 10 pack before buying a larger quantity.

FAQ

  • Each package contains 10 containers of dental silicone.

  • The silicone is opaque and unscented/unflavored.

  • Remember to remove the silicone before you brush your teeth. It can be re-applied after brushing.

  • Non-toxic if swallowed.

Lynn Says

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.

Is it OK if you swallow a little bit of this?
1 Answer
Ortho-Sil is made from medical/dental grade silicone. It is not listed as a toxic material on its material safety sheet. Therefore, it should not hurt you if you happen to swallow a little bit of it -- it will probably just pass right out of you. If you swallow more than just a little bit, you may want to ask your doctor or your dentist. Here is a link to the product's material safety sheet: http://www.dentsplygac.at/sites/all/files/userfiles/17_-_222-00_et_17-222-22.pdf

Saved my tongue from being shredded.
I had lingual buttons; placed on my back molars so that power thread could be used to rotate them into place. It felt like brads nails sticking out of them. By the end of the first day my tongue had a big sore on it. I couldn;t talk or eat without pain. I tried wax but it wouldnt hold onto the posts. it was this silicone that really worked and made this tolerable. It is very easy to work with, stays in place all night and most of the time during the day. It;s also very smooth to the touch which makes it comfortable. The best part is the cost. Each pack can last a week if youre using it 24/7.
ProsStays in place Smooth to the touch Moisture activated Clear Inexpensive
ConsCan get embedded in a bracket

Essential for Comfort
I use these after every brushing. I find them essential for comfort. The only downside is that they can be a little tricky at first in applying to the brackets. Your fingers must be completely dry and you must apply quick, firm pressure for the gel to adhere.
ProsProtects the inside cheeks from abrasion caused by braces.
ConsIt takes practice to apply properly.

Didn't work forme :(
This "wax" works fine for anything in the front. I do like that it is more opaque than wax and it is barely noticeable, as opposed to wax, when applied. However, the area must be VERY dry for it to stick and that is absolutely impossible if you are trying to attach it to the very back braces, which is the greatest point of irritation for me. I have a very small mouth and would need 3 hands to get it on the back braces. It does stay put better than wax, but only if you can get it in place! I wish I could get it to work... I really do!
ProsLooks better than wax. Stays put better than wax.
ConsToo difficult to get in place on anything other than the front braces or side braces.

Orthodontic silicone
So much better than the wax. A little bit harder to get in place but when it's there, it stays there.
ProsStays in place even if you drink hot fluids. Reusable!
ConsA little bit harder to get in to place that regular orthodental wax.

Best Product for braces or broken tooth
I've used this for over a year and use it for a tooth that has moved towards my lip. In my opinion, it's the best product for braces or a broken tooth!

Ortho-Sil is convenient, and easy to use. It keeps my braces from irritating the insides of my mouth. I like that it stays on until I take it off.
