All I got from my ortho was a pack of dental wax. He did mention I could come and get more from the office if I run out, so I guess I have an unlimited supply.

I just got a tiny little plastic box which had like 5 strips of wax!! I've not used any yet, I'd prefer to toughen my mouth up. So far so good really
