A Bite Therapy Wafer (Elastobyte Therapy Wafer) is a U-shaped piece of medical-grade plastic that you chew on to help stop your teeth from hurting. It is especially helpful after an orthodontic adjustment. Chewing on a Bite 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. Do this 3 or 4 times per day for 15 to 20 minutes per time. Be sure 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. You can get a Bite Therapy Wafer from your dentist or orthodontist, or buy it online at DentaKit.com.
