Answers to your questions
When's the right time for my child to start Phase 1 treatment?
Every child is unique, but a good rule of thumb is to consider an evaluation around age 7. Starting early can help us steer growth in the right direction, making future treatments quicker and easier.
How long does Phase 1 treatment usually last?
Depending on your child’s specific needs, Phase 1 treatment can take anywhere from a few months to a couple of years.
Does my child need braces after Phase 1 treatment?
Sometimes, yes. Phase 1 treatment mainly focuses on guiding jaw growth and creating space for permanent teeth. After this, braces might be needed to align the teeth perfectly.
Is Phase 1 treatment covered by dental insurance?
Many dental insurance plans cover Phase 1 treatment, but it can vary. Don’t worry, our team will work closely with your insurance provider to maximize your benefits.
