Two-Phase Orthodontic Treatment
Two-phase *orthodontic treatment refers to two separate times when a child receives *orthodontic care. The first phase is done while the child still has many or most of their primary or “baby” teeth. The second takes place when the child has most or all of their permanent teeth.
Interceptive *Orthodontics identifies children’s teeth that are coming in crooked or crowded, usually by the age of 7. This is the best time to begin to correct problems such as dental crowding, too much space between teeth, protruding teeth and extra or missing teeth and sometimes jaw growth problems. By creating the necessary room for teeth early on, you can significantly reduce or even completely avoid the time and cost necessary for orthodontics later in life.
