Orthodontic Evaluations and Phase I Treatments
Before your child’s permanent teeth fully erupt, we can assess his or her mouth and jaws to determine if early interceptive treatment could benefit them. Phase I treatment, which typically takes place between the ages of 6-10, allows us to prepare your child’s jaws for the optimal eruption of their permanent teeth. Phase I treatment has many benefits, such as:
- Improving the relationship between the upper and lower jaws
- Improving facial structure and appearance
- Guiding permanent teeth into a better position
- Correcting damaging oral habits
Braces and Phase II Treatment
To ensure yours or your child’s most stable and functional bite, we often recommend second phase treatment: braces. Metal braces are still the most common braces used, and they tend to be better suited for correcting more serious malocclusion problems. Modern metal braces are much more comfortable than ones worn in the past, as they’re flatter and smaller. Proper orthodontic alignment pays dividends:
- Increased confidence in appearance
- Straighter teeth are easier to keep clean
- Elimination or mitigation of speech, chewing, or biting problems
- Healthier gums
Invisalign Orthodontic Treatment for Adults
Invisalign is an excellent orthodontic choice for busy adults who prefer minimally invasive treatment, and a discreet look during their smile transformation. A beautiful smile is an excellent investment, that not only safeguards your oral health, but offers many social perks, as well. Leave the wires and brackets behind, and simply change your aligners at the designated intervals. Invisalign is both convenient and effective. Learn more about Invisalign HERE.
