Phase 1 / Interceptive Orthodontics

Phase 1 / Interceptive Orthodontics

Many children require the guidance of dental and facial development as a first phase of orthodontic treatment, commonly called Phase 1 or Interceptive Orthodontics. If indicated, this is typically attempted in the mixed dentition or very early in the permanent dentition.

For crowding problems, some lost space can be regained using appliances to reposition teeth to their original positions Attempts to regain space are usually limited to mild or moderate crowding, depending on a number of variables.

CONVENTIONAL ORTHODONTICS TREATMENT OF ADULTS AND CHILDREN

CONVENTIONAL ORTHODONTICS TREATMENT OF ADULTS AND CHILDREN

Orthodontic treatment corrects teeth and jaws that are positioned improperly. Crooked teeth and teeth that do not fit together correctly not only detract from one's appearance, they also are harder to keep clean, are at risk of being lost early due to tooth decay and gum disease, and cause extra stress on the chewing muscles and temporo-mandibular joint (TMJ).

The benefits of orthodontic treatment include a more pleasing appearance, a healthier mouth and teeth that are more likely to last a lifetime.

ORTHODONTIC TREATMENT USING SELF LIGATING CLEAR ATTACHMENTS (DAMON SYSTEM)

ORTHODONTIC TREATMENT USING SELF LIGATING CLEAR ATTACHMENTS (DAMON SYSTEM)

We likewise offer a clinically proven treatment approach utilizing passive self-ligating brackets that eliminate the need for elastic/metal ligature ties and high technology wires that move teeth faster, requiring fewer adjustments. These self-ligating brackets have a unique sliding mechanism that minimizes the friction and binding of conventional braces thus reducing pressure on the teeth and allowing them to move more comfortably to their correct positions. This revolutionary approach to orthodontics reduces discomfort throughout the treatment. While patients often pursue orthodontic alignment to improve their smile esthetics, they will also reap oral health benefits. Value-added benefits include oral hygiene access, periodontal health, and occlusal and masticatory function.

Lingual braces are completely invisible when you smile and do not cause any significant change in the lip and facial contours.
