Phase-One Treatment for Younger Children – Children around age 7-8 may require orthodontic treatment to correct a bad bite. If left untreated, this would cause asymmetric growth of the lower jaw and an abnormal pattern of tooth wear. Children with severely protruded upper front teeth (buck teeth) are much more liable to lose them in an accident. Low self esteem, lisping, and a poor profile are often associated with these problems.
Phase-Two Treatment for Younger Children – Sometimes the faulty growth pattern persists even when it was corrected in an earlier Phase-One. Often hereditary factors play a role, and at other times some of the un-erupted permanent teeth may come in crooked. This may necessitate the need for further treatment or Phase-Two treament. Not every Phase-One ends up with a Phase-Two. In fact, a Phase-One treatment usually reduces the severity of the problems. For example, a case that would have required jaw surgery or permanent tooth extractions may often be treated as a simple problem. Some patients also choose to stay with the results they attained from Phase-One.
