Traditional orthodontic braces incorporate a series of metal brackets, wires, spacers, and bands. These components help Drs. Shabbir Adenwalla and Inayat Ashai to correct the alignment of your teeth through the course of multiple tightening adjustments.

If you are uncomfortable with visible orthodontic hardware appearing in your smile Drs. Shabbir Adenwalla and Inayat Ashai can apply a simple ceramic coating, during the installation process. This special type of dental material can be perfectly shaded to match your natural tooth enamel. This will lessen their visual impact throughout the realignment process.

It’s important to note that there are certain foods and bad habits can potentially damage the ceramically coated braces. Chewing gum and eating sticky foods can become stuck in the wires and bands. This could bend or even loosen braces hardware. This also goes for chewing hard foods, hard candy or crunching down on ice.

The special ceramic glaze will resist dental staining better than your natural tooth enamel. If your teeth become stained from dark beverages and tobacco use they might not perfectly match the shade of the ceramic material. It would help to drink dark beverages through a straw, abstain from tobacco and cut back on certain dark foods like chocolate and dark berries.

If you live in the Avon, Sandusky and Wadsworth, Ohio, area and you are interested in ceramically coated braces, you should call to schedule consultation at A&A Orthodontics’s orthodontic clinic.
