Orthodontic two-phase treatment

Don’t just sit and wait as your child’s jaw develops, consider Two-Phrase Treatment.

The Australian Society of Orthodontics recommends that every child has an orthodontic check-up at seven years of age. 

It’s always best to address orthodontic problems early in your child’s life and Two-Phase Treatment is often a great way to do this! The ultimate aim of Two-Phrase treatment is to create the healthiest and most esthetically pleasing results that will remain stable throughout their life.

Orthodontic issues can generally be divided into two categories:

  1. Orthodontic problems that only involve the teeth
  2. Orthodontic problems that involve both the teeth and jaws

If a child does fall into category two and is likely to suffer from abnormal jaw development then it’s important that treatment encompasses two phases.

The first phase is all about the jaws. The goal of the first phase is to develop the jaw size to accommodate the permanent teeth and to create appropriate facial development. The plates used in this phase can be fixed or removable.

The second phase focuses on the teeth. The goal of the second phase is to make sure that the teeth are aligned correctly. To achieve this result braces are usually required. This phase doesn’t begin until the child has all or almost all of their permanent teeth.
