First, pinch BRACE GARDTM material over dry bracket, locking material behind edges and undercuts. IMPORTANT: the material and bracket must be dry.
Then, spread the BRACE GARD silicone material over offending bracket with wet finger, pushing material under and behind bracket with fingernail, thus achieving mechanical retention. BRACE GARD silicone can be removed and replaced whenever necessary.
Note: Using tissue, dry brackets thoroughly before application. This affords excellent protection for young musicians and athletes, as they can apply a full rod of BRACE GARD over the entire frontal area for use as a mouthguard.
