Munchies® are fabricated in 2 sizes and 6 differing visco-elasticities (the materials ability to bend, flow and recover) that optimize forces appropriate for specific tooth movement and which are sympathetic to each stage of your treatment with clear aligners or braces. These visco-elastic properties provide significant pain relief – (shown to be more effective than analgesics) - especially in the first 24 hours following orthodontic adjustments or new aligner insertion. Patients can choose any of the Munchies® as a starting point and use in tandem with any other Munchie®. Variations in the strength of the jaw muscles, size of the teeth, density of bone and tooth movement required will affect the comfort of each Munchie® for each individual.
