Early Orthodontic Treatment


Phase I Treatment

Some children exhibit early signs of teeth and bite problems that should be corrected early, such as crossbite, underbite and severe crowding. Early orthodontic treatment at age 6-9 is designed to guide and enhance your child’s own natural growth before problems are firmly set. Early treatment also helps to create space for permanent teeth to come in properly, lessening the chance for extractions later. The treatment is estimated at 8-12 months.
