Dr. Battle has years of experience creating personalized treatment plans for young children in early orthodontic treatment. We bring you modern early orthodontic treatment in a family-friendly environment.
The AAO (American Association of Orthodontists) recommends that children receive their first orthodontic evaluation at age 7.
If any of these symptoms sound familiar, we encourage you to request a complimentary consultation with us.
An early assessment of your child’s growth gives you the peace of mind that your child is thriving.
Phase 1 orthodontic treatment is typically completed between the ages of 7 and 10 and is aimed to prepare the mouth for permanent teeth to emerge in a healthy alignment with a sufficient amount of space.
During this phase, your child may be treated with a palatal expander appliance to widen the upper jaw and create enough room for permanent teeth to grow.
This phase generally begins in the early teen years, when all of the permanent teeth have erupted. Phase 2 treatment focuses on aligning the teeth and jaws to create a harmonious facial appearance. During this phase, a full treatment of braces or clear aligners is often completed.
Every child develops at a different rate, and your child’s treatment plan will be 100% personalized to his or her needs. At your first visit, we’ll help you make the right choice for your child!
