Early Treatment - Phase 1

What is early treatment? 

Early treatment, also known as phase I or interceptive treatment, is when a young patient still hase baby teeth, but needs to start orthodontic treatment. There are multiple reasons for early treatment, but the underlying common reason is that if not treated early, the problems will become more complex and will require longer (and more costly) treatment later on. 

So the old "wait until all baby teeth fall out" principle does not apply any more. 

If your child needs phase I treatment Dr. Trpkova will advise you about it. 

Some children will not need early treatment, and will be placed on our recall/monitoring program, so that  we can plan to start at the most optimal time.
