What is the purpose of Phase One (early) orthodontic treatment?

The primary objective for Phase One treatment is to address significant problems to prevent them from becoming more severe and to improve self-esteem and self-image.

Phase I, or early interceptive treatment, is orthodontic treatment that is done before a child has all of their permanent teeth. Such treatments as palatal expansion, active retainer or partial braces are implemented.

Phase One treatment, if necessary, is usually initiated on children between the ages of 7 and 10. Phase One treatment lasts about 12-21 months.
