The orthodontic braces components installed in your child’s mouth represent an effective system capable of correcting the alignment of their teeth. This is done primarily through regularly scheduled adjustments designed to tighten the braces as they gradually move the teeth into their ideal alignment.

This is a gradual process that will stretch the periodontal ligaments that anchor their teeth in their gums. Consistent timing of their adjustments is very important to the process. If you know of an upcoming scheduling conflict, it’s best to contact A&A Orthodontics’s orthodontic clinic to set up a new time.

Each of these appointments will also include a cursory inspection of the braces hardware components. If your son or daughter has noticed an area of wear and tear, they should tell Dr. Shabbir Adenwalla and Inayat Ashai and their team at the start of the appointment.

Maintaining good oral hygiene is also important to the adjustment process. If your son or daughter is having trouble brushing or flossing a specific area, you might want to try providing them with an interdental brush, floss threader, waxed dental floss, or a water flosser device that has been approved by the American Dental Association.

If you live in the Avon, Sandusky and Wadsworth, Ohio, area and your son or daughter has alignment problems with their teeth, you should call to schedule a braces consultation at A&A Orthodontics.
