Early orthodontic or Phase I treatment
The American Association of Orthodontists recommends an Orthodontic check-up no later than age 7. This may seem early for a visit. There are a few important reasons many will include the Doctors at Nanda Orthodontics keeping a close watch on your child’s growth. At this age, the front teeth have begun to erupt and problems can be detected.
At this stage, partial braces or gentle and effective expanders could be used to aid in permanent tooth eruption. The photo below is a list that can help determine if phase I treatment will be recommended.
At this age interceptive treatment could be recommended to prevent permanent damage to teeth or oral structures. If treatment is not recommended the doctors will review their findings and schedule a growth check for the future. Our goal is to provide your child with the most appropriate treatment at the most ideal time. This is a complementary service we provide to be able to best assist you.

Early Orthodontic Treatment/ Phase I
Some children can benefit enormously from an early phase of orthodontic treatment. At this age, teeth and jaws are still growing so treatment is aimed at utilizing appliances that direct the growth relationship of the upper and lower jaws. Thus, a good foundation can be established, providing adequate room for eruption of all permanent teeth. This early, interceptive correction may prevent later removal of permanent teeth to correct overcrowding and/or surgical procedures to align the upper and lower jaws. Leaving such a condition untreated until all permanent teeth erupt could result in a jaw discrepancy too severe to achieve an ideal result with braces.
Kids braces and Invisalign have improved a lot in the last few decades. Our latest technology and specialized wires make them more comfortable than the braces many parents remember wearing.
