Why Early Treatment?

Children as early as age 7 can be evaluated to help determine possible future orthodontic needs. By this time the permanent first molars and incisors should be in and crowding or cross bite problems become evident. If treatment is necessary at this early age it is considered “early” or Phase I treatment. This early treatment can help guide the jaws during growth and gain space, possibly preventing permanent teeth from being extracted.
