For young children, Ridge Meadows offers early treatment First-Phase Orthodontics, also known as Phase-One and this typically begins around age 8/9 years. Phase-Two commences when adult teeth have grown in.

The goal of early treatment is to correct the growth of the jaw and certain bite problems, such as underbite. Early treatment also helps to make room for permanent teeth to come in properly, lessening the chance of extractions in the future.

To avoid damaging dental problems caused in the early stages of your child’s growth, schedule an appointment for First-Phase Orthodontics with us at Ridge Meadows Children’s Dentistry. Our team will work to identify any issues and give them the attention they need before more serious issues develop and your child requires further treatment.

By working together as a team, we can help keep your kids smiling for years to come by preventing the issues that stem from biting problems. To learn more about how to prevent dental problems, contact the team at Ridge Meadows Children’s Dentistry today.
