Some children with specific problems can benefit tremendously from an early, interceptive phase of orthodontic/orthopedic treatment. Orthodontic appliances can be used to correct the jaw shape and direct the growth toward an ideal relationship between the upper and lower jaws. A good foundation can be established through early treatment or Phase I providing adequate room for eruption of all the permanent teeth.
Not all children need early treatment, but those that do benefit greatly. Some examples of appliances used in early treatment or Phase I Orthodontics are:
- Palatal Expander
- Twin Block
