At Liberty Dental Centre, we believe in fostering radiant, confident smiles from a young age. Early orthodontics, often known as Phase I Orthodontics, is our proactive approach to nip dental issues in the bud, ensuring your child’s dental journey is smooth and pleasant because every child deserves the freedom to smile without reservation.
It is recommended that children consult Liberty Dental Centre for an early orthodontic assessment at the age of seven. By this time, most baby teeth have come through, and it is an ideal time to evaluate the development of the teeth, jaw, and face.
Our dental professionals design these orthodontic treatments to help children maintain healthy oral health and ensure proper facial growth. Regular dental visits at this age are also important, as permanent teeth start to emerge and must be monitored until age twelve.
Liberty Dental Centre provides the highest quality of care and is an expert in early orthodontics for Wheelers Hill.
Phase I Orthodontic treatment typically begins before the eruption of the adult teeth and is focused on preventing problems that can occur as adult teeth come in. The main goals of this treatment are to correct skeletal discrepancies, create enough space for the adult teeth to come through and to help eliminate habits such as thumb sucking and mouth breathing.
In contrast, Phase II Orthodontic treatment typically begins after most permanent teeth have come in. During this phase, metal braces or clear aligners (Invisalign) are used to correct misaligned teeth and create a beautiful smile.
A consultation appointment and orthodontic assessment are necessary to determine the exact duration of treatment. At Liberty Dental Centre, early orthodontic treatments typically range from 6 to 24 months.
Parents should be proactive in monitoring the appearance of their child’s teeth, as well as their development, to determine if their teeth are misaligned or out of position. This duration of treatment provides an opportunity to correct problems before they become more serious with pre-orthodontic treatment and the placement of orthodontic braces.
The best way to determine your child’s exact treatment duration is to schedule a consultation appointment for an initial assessment. After the orthodontic assessment, Liberty Dental Centre can provide you with an exact timeline for treatment that will help your child achieve a healthy smile.
A comprehensive evaluation of a child’s teeth and jaw development can help to determine if they are a good candidate for early orthodontic treatment.
Early orthodontic treatment can benefit children with complex dental issues, and regular appointments are necessary to ensure a successful outcome.
During the active phase of treatment, visits to Liberty Dental Centre are typically recommended every 6-8 weeks. However, the frequency may vary depending on the individual treatment plan and the progress of dental development.
To ensure optimal results, our team will provide a tailored schedule for each patient, taking into account any dental concerns, duration of treatment, braces currently in place, and other orthodontic issues.
