Open Late Dentistry and Orthodontics Dentist in Celina, TX


Shortening Time In Braces and Preventing Orthodontic Surgeries

Why Would My Child Need Phase 1 Orthodontics?

9 Problems To Look For in 6 to 8 Year Old Children (Reasons For Phase 1 Consultations) Include: Excessive Spacing, Crowding, Open Bite, Overbite (or Deep Bite), Crossbite, Crossbite, Underbite, Overject and Abnormal Eruption

The Top 9 Reasons to Consider Phase 1 Orthodontics For Your Child Are:

  1. Prevent Orthodontic Surgery as an Adult – Orthodontics involves movement of not only teeth, but the Upper and Lower Jaws. In children, expanding the jaws to proper size and bringing the jaws into proper alignment is crucial and most surgeries for orthodontics may be avoided.

  2. May Shorten Your Child’s Time in Braces Later On – We offer “holding appliances” at the end of Phase 1 to keep your child’s teeth stable as the rest of their teeth erupt. If necessary, Phase 2 Orthodontics is shortened dramatically by having had Phase 1 Therapy.

  3. Decrease Risk of Your Child Chipping Teeth in the Future – By Moving the Lower Jaw into Proper Position with the Upper Jaw, we lessen the chance of you child chipping their front teeth.

  4. Helping to Prevent TMJ Disorder Later On in Your Child’s Adult Life – by preventing a childhood crossbite, we can dramatically lessen the need for TMJ care later on.

  5. Preventing Abnormal Tooth Wear in Your Child’s Adult Life – by addressing teeth that are in the incorrect position, we can help ensure they destroy fewer teeth as they grow and put more stress on adult teeth.

  6. Correcting an Overbite – If your child’s lower jaw is set too far back, then Phase 1 Orthodontic Therapy Can Bring the Lower Jaw forward and open the airway by allowing more room for your child’s tongue to have space to move.

  7. Correct Your Child’s Harmful Oral Habits – Thumb sucking or tongue thrusting causing an Open Bite can be addressed early on with appliance therapy to get your child swallowing correctly and having a better night’s sleep.

  8. Correct Excessive Spacing/Gaps in Your Child’s Smile – Large diastemas, or gaps, can sometimes be addressed at an early age and help with your child’s lip posture.

  9. If Your Child is Experiencing Tooth Crowding – It is crucial in children that require extractions due to adult teeth erupting behind baby teeth, that jaw size be evaluated and treated properly.

    Why Does My Child Have a Gap In Between Their Front Teeth During Phase 1 Orthodontics and What is Done About it ?

    Do Not Panic...This is a Normal Part of the Process! A Gap Appears for a Period of Time While the Teeth are Moved Apart to Create a Bigger Arch for Future Adult Teeth in the Back of the Mouth. The Gap (called a Diastema) is CLOSED After the Expander Has Done Its Job.
