Once Dr. Shabbir Adenwalla installs traditional braces into your child’s mouth they will still need to return to his orthodontic clinic for routine adjustments. Each of these important appointments is designed to tighten the components to gradually stretch the periodontal ligaments that anchor their teeth in place.
Consistent timing of their adjustments is very important. If you know of an upcoming scheduling conflict with one of their adjustments, you should contact Dr. Shabbir Adenwalla’s orthodontic clinic to set up an alternate time.
These appointments are also an opportunity to replace or repair any braces hardware that might have suffered excess wear and tear. If your son or daughter has noticed a problem with some part of their braces, they should Dr. Shabbir Adenwalla at the start of the appointment.
Sometimes a spacer can feel loose or even fall out right before a scheduled adjustment session. In a situation like this, you should call 360 Orthodontics for advice. In most of these cases, we will simply recommend scheduling an earlier adjustment appointment.
Good oral hygiene habits are also important to the realignment process. Excessive wear and tear on braces hardware and cavities can increase the duration of the alignment process. Some hard to reach places might be cleaned by an interdental brush, water flosser, or floss threader to remove bacterial deposits.
If your son or daughter had braces installed in their mouth at Dr. Shabbir Adenwalla’s orthodontic clinic and you know of an upcoming scheduling conflict, you should call 440-243-9575 to set up an alternative time at 360 Orthodontics.
