Orthodontics is the branch of our dental practice that deals with the correction of teeth that are crooked, irregularly positioned jaws, and teeth that generally don’t fit together properly. Our qualified and experienced orthodontists and support staff are here to help you transform your smile. We provide Phase I or Early Treatment, which is the aspect of orthodontic treatment that occurs before your child’s permanent teeth have completely emerged. This type of treatment is only recommended when there is a moderate or severe orthodontic problem too great to be corrected by braces alone.
It is often best to identify and treat problems in children that may influence eruption of teeth or jaw growth and positioning early in order to prevent a more severe problem in the future as an adolescent or adult. This type of treatment is known as Phase I Treatment or Early Interceptive Treatment. It usually occurs when a child is between the ages of 6 and 10 and is performed before the eruption of all permanent teeth. It may include expansion, active retainers, or partial braces.
