Orthodontic treatment is provided by Dr. Chad. He and his staff have taken multiple continuing education classes specializing in orthodontics. Both Phase I and Phase II orthodontics are available at Primary Dental.
Phase I Orthodontics
Phase 1 or early treatment occurs when the child still has a mixture of primary and permanent teeth. The age that Phase 1 treatment is usually started at is between ages 7 to 10, though ages can vary due to some patients with early and others with late erupting permanent teeth. Phase 1 treatment typically ranges from 6-18 months. There can be many orthodontic problems to address during Phase 1 treatment. Orthodontic problems consist of but are not limited to: Overbites, Underbites, Crossbites, Crowding, and Oral Habits. Most Phase I patients require a Phase II treatment in order to achieve an ideal bite.
