Questions About Early Orthodontic Treatment (Phase I)

At what age should I bring my child for an orthodontic evaluation?

We recommend bringing your child between the ages of 6-7 y/o. This is the best time to identify any potential issues and find out if early intervention is necessary.

What issues can early orthodontic intervention treat?

Early orthodontic treatment, also known as Phase I, can address and prevent many issues, including bite problems, narrow jaw, protruding teeth, and other orthodontic problems that can affect the development of your child’s teeth and jaw.

Does my child need orthodontic treatment?

Not every child needs orthodontic treatment. Good candidates for Phase I include children who:

  • Have difficulty biting properly
  • Lose baby teeth early
  • Experience clicking jaws or grinding during movement
  • Suffer from bruxism

The best way to find out if your child can benefit from early orthodontic treatment is to visit us for a free consultation.

What type of early treatment does my child need?

If your child does need early intervention, the exact type of treatment will depend on their specific issue.

Common types of treatment include wearing a palatal expander or partial braces. Dr. Andreson will work with you to develop a treatment plan that is tailored to your child’s needs.

What are the benefits of early treatment?

Our Charleston early orthodontic treatments can provide many benefits, including:

  • Better jaw development: Early treatment can help guide the proper growth and development of your child’s jaws.
  • Reduced need for future treatment: Phase I can often prevent more extensive and costly orthodontic treatment in the future.
  • Improved oral health: By correcting issues such as crowded or protruding teeth, we can make it easier for your child to keep their teeth and gums clean.
  • Boost in self-confidence: A healthy, beautiful smile can do wonders for your child’s self-esteem.
