Phase One Orthodontic Treatment
When it comes to your child, you strive for nothing but the absolute best. Unquestionably, one of the most pivotal elements in your child’s journey is their radiant smile. Beyond a mere aesthetic, it is a vital cornerstone in their social development—part of a universal language that fosters meaningful connections along their maturity journey.
Phase One Orthodontic Treatment from Beverly Hills Orthodontics is designed to shape a smile that transcends the ordinary by correcting bite problems and jaw growth. Under the visionary guidance of Dr. Monica Madan, Beverly Hills Orthodontics is not just a practice; it’s a passionate commitment to sculpting a smile that your child will revel in for a lifetime.
Phase One Orthodontic Treatment
Phase one orthodontic care, sometimes called early orthodontic treatment, refers to the interceptive phase of orthodontic treatment for children.
In Phase One Orthodontic Treatment, our primary goal is to catch and fix specific orthodontic issues early on before they become trickier to handle. At the same time, we want to guide the natural growth and development of your child’s jaw and facial bones, especially as their permanent teeth are coming in. It’s like giving their smile a head start for a lifetime of confidence!
The primary objectives are:
- Creating Space: Addressing issues related to crowing by creating space for the permanent teeth to come in properly.
- Correcting Bite Problems: Correcting underbites, overbites, and crossbites.
- Guiding Jaw Growth: Influencing the growth and development of the jaw bones to create a more harmonious relationship between the upper and lower jaws.
- Preventing More Serious Issues: Interceptive treatment aims to prevent developing more serious orthodontic issues that may require more extensive treatment later in life.
- Palatal Expanders
|Comprehensive evaluation of the child’s dental and facial development. Identification of potential orthodontic issues.
|Development of a personalized treatment plan addressing specific concerns such as bite problems, crowding, or spacing.
|Introduction of orthodontic appliances like braces, expanders, or space maintainers, as needed, to address identified issues.
|Monitoring and Adjustments
|Regular check-ups to monitor progress and make necessary adjustments to the appliances for optimal effectiveness.
|Jaw Growth Guidance
|Implement strategies to guide the natural growth of the jaw and facial bones, promoting proper alignment.
|Interventions to create sufficient space for the eruption of permanent teeth, preventing crowding issues.
|Correction of bite problems, including overbites, underbites, and crossbites, ensures a harmonious bite.
|Ongoing assessments to track the overall development and readiness for the next phase of orthodontic care.
|Continuous education for both child and parent on oral hygiene, care of orthodontic appliances, and compliance.
|Transition to Phase Two
|Evaluation of readiness for the next phase of comprehensive orthodontic treatment, if needed, as permanent teeth continue to erupt.
Phase one orthodontic treatment is often followed by a second phase of orthodontic treatment that begins after all of the permanent teeth have developed. This second phase focuses on fine-tuning the alignment of the teeth and ensuring the bite is well-adjusted.
The success of the second phase hinges on the groundwork laid in phase one. Phase one orthodontics is the cornerstone for crafting an incredible smile, making it a pivotal and indispensable stage in orthodontic treatment.
