Upper and Lower Braces Treatment – Day 2

Do Braces Hurt?

life with braces - gishy gooSometime when you are new to braces they can cause a little discomfort in your mouth and cheeks. This is perfectly natural and nothing to worry about. You’ll soon get used to them but you can use a little wax to stop them causing you minor irritation. To alleviate the discomfort, Nicky used a little wax.

After squeezing out a small amount of wax from two tubes she mixes it together so the two compounds react and starts to set. She then stuck it on to the wire or bracket that was causing the slight discomfort and within a couple of minutes it sets leaving her mouth irritation free.


Gishy Goo comes in 5 different colors and taste like bubblegum. Click her for more information about wax and Gishy Goo or contact our office.
