wax question

#1 Post by jinxycatUK »

Hi there,
I just got braces for the THIRD time and appear to have forgotten everything about my previous two experiences.

Can someone tell me if I'm doing something wrong if putting wax on hurts my tooth?

I'm guessing it's just a pressure thing, and will get better, right?

I've never had wax hurt, but it can sometimes make my tooth feel kind of heavier or something for an hour or so after I put it on.

Same here, I can't just push it on I need to almost support the tooth from the back and be very gentle (hoping this sensation will wear off soon) but am only on day 2!!
