Early Orthodontic Treatment

Phase 1 Orthodontic Treatment

Phase One Orthodontic treatment can be thought of as correcting your child’s tooth foundation for a lifetime of beautiful smiles, and occurs when your child has a mixture of primary and permanent teeth. At this time the bones of the foundation (jaws) are pliable and ligaments can easily and comfortably be stretched to accommodate the developing teeth or correct facial contour.
The goal of Phase One treatment is to help the jaw develop in a way that will accommodate all of the permanent teeth and to improve the way the upper and lower jaws fit together. If Dr. George Bardawil has recommended early treatment, this may mean that your child has exhibited early signs of jaw problems, such as an upper or lower jaw that is growing too much, not enough, or is too narrow.
Early treatment may also be used to avoid permanent tooth extraction later and will deliver better long-term results and more treatment options in the future.
The second phase of treatment, usually including a full set of braces, begins when almost all permanent teeth have erupted and is necessary in order for your child to achieve an ideal bite and perfectly straight teeth. bardawil -ORTHODONTIST,, Invisalign premier provider, speciality clinics center, st maamari,12th floor hamra,beirut lebanon Hamra clinic 961-1-747644 Fanar clinic 961-1-873718 mobile 961-3-542724
