TWO PHASE TREATMENTS


ONE STEP AT A TIME

+++

We evaluate every patient to determine if there is a need to optimize the jaw relationships for ideal function and facial appearance. Our goal is to first get the jaws right so we can then get the teeth right. Two phase treatment is needed when there is a skeletal and dental concern. The first phase is the skeletal correction; the second phase is the dental correction.

Phase 1 (Skeletal)

Dentofacial orthopedic appliances are used to ensure the jaws are of optimum size and position to each other and the cranial base. Not only does this create room for all the adult teeth but optimizes facial appearance.Children often exhibit early signs the jaws are not developing properly; jaws that are asymmetric, too far forward, too far back, too narrow or jaws with insufficient room for all the permanent teeth are what the doctors are looking for.

Phase 2 (Dental)

The goal of the dental correction is the ideal alignment of the teeth to ensure harmony with the cheeks, lips and tongue. With equilibrium the teeth look and function at their best, inappropriate wear of teeth is minimized and the teeth are easier to clean. Phase two usually involves upper and lower braces or Invisalign.
