Comprehensive treatment corrects jaw and dental misalignment, improves biting, and results in a beautiful smile for individuals who have lost all of their baby teeth. A Smile to Grow With provides innovative, all-inclusive treatment to infants, children, and teens. Our experts will change your child’s smile and health with outstanding orthodontic care, a personalized treatment plan, and exceptional service, using cutting-edge technologies and years of expertise.
We use braces and retainers to enhance or correct all elements of a patient’s smile, from their bite and jaw to their tooth alignment.
If you’re interested in getting your child a full orthodontic treatment, we’ll evaluate their unique health profile and anatomy, talk about the objectives, and establish their smile’s requirements. Then, our orthodontists will create the ideal, personalized treatment plan for them. This may include braces and retainers, and the length might vary based on a variety of variables.
Children in Two-Phase Orthodontic Treatment get Phase One between the ages of seven and eleven before all permanent teeth have set in. This stage is frequently utilized to create a strong foundation for permanent teeth and repair jaw development issues that may otherwise require extraction or surgery later.
A resting period occurs between the two stages to allow for the development of permanent teeth. During this time, retainers may be advised.
After all permanent teeth have come, Phase Two normally begins. This last step of therapy includes complete braces or aligner treatment to ensure that all teeth are properly aligned and in harmony with the lips, cheeks, and tongue. Phase Two is when your gorgeous, healthy smile comes together!
For many young patients, two-phase therapy is an appropriate alternative. Our orthodontists produce healthy smiles, prevent complications, and reduce the chance of a child requiring future extractions or surgery by initiating orthodontic therapy early. If your kid is getting Two-Phase therapy, you can be confident that their smile is in capable hands!
