To save your child from expensive and extensive orthodontic treatments in the future, you must ensure that they get proper care of their oral health early on. Proper growth and development of your child’s teeth will save them from any additional troubles. Make sure your child receives an orthodontic consultation by the time they turn 7. At our orthodontic clinic in Vail, New Windsor, NY we cater to the two-phase orthodontic treatment so as to create a healthier and more functional bite for your child so that he or she can have better oral health.

Phase One

Interceptive Orthodontic Treatment

Phase one treatment, popularly referred to as the interceptive treatment, incorporates better alignment by using various appliances, including palatal expander or a partial set of braces. The choice of the tool gets dictated by the treatment plan designed for your child. The duration to wear each appliance spans over 6-12 months, followed by a resting period. During this time, a strong foundation for the appropriate eruption and growth of permanent teeth gets laid.

Phase Two

Orthodontic Treatment

In this phase, your child gets a complete set of braces attached to the upper and lower set of their teeth. If you choose Vail Orthodontics to cater to the interceptive treatment needed in the case of your child, we can assure that the time taken for phase two will be shorter and easier to manage. Our practitioners have years of experience in treating methods involving traditional braces, ceramic braces, Damon braces, Invisalign® clear aligners suitable for teens and adults. You and your child can choose the orthodontic treatment from among the variety of options we have to offer. We ideally recommend phase two orthodontic treatment to children between the ages of 11-15 years. The duration lies somewhere between 12-20 months, depending on the severity of the misalignment issue your child is undergoing.
