Chewies

咬胶(Chewie)

So you’ve received your Aligners. You unpack it and inside you find the Aligners, Aligner Removal Tool (that has a hooked edge), and this sponge-like circular cylindrical-shaped object. What is that?

什么是咬胶? 

咬胶是专门用来搭配隐形矫正时使用的一种硅胶棒,经常使用咬胶可使牙套和牙齿紧密贴合,保持正畸力系统的平衡。


咬胶的作用

Firstly, your aligners should be worn and fitted over your teeth. Once you have done so, place the chewie between your teeth and bite down on it. You could bite down on the chewie longways or shortways whichever is suitable for you. Just don’t swallow it!

二、 很多小伙伴在矫正过程中因为吃东西摘戴牙套麻烦、牙齿酸软等原因比平时更少吃东西。长期缺乏咀嚼训练容易导致咀嚼肌和咬肌的流失,造成脸部消瘦现象,俗称“牙套脸”。而咬胶带来足够的咬合运动则可以预防和降低“牙套脸”的出现。 

咬胶的正确使用方法 

Should you feel if there are areas or tooth that aren’t fitting to the trays as well compared to others, do additional chewie exercises (biting on the chewies) on those specific areas to help with the fitting. Take note to use your chewies each time you change to a new set of aligners so as to achieve the best possible teeth alignment. 

如何照顾咬胶?

Chewies can be washed with mild soap and water. After using your chewies, give them a wash and leave them in an airy area to dry. Do not keep them in containers with no ventilation. You’ll be able to use your chewies until they lose their elasticity.
