Does getting/wearing braces hurt?
What is early intervention (phase I treatment)?
Orthodontics will give you that straight, perfect smile that will last a lifetime. Just as important, it will give you a healthy bite that will assure you keep your teeth around for the long haul.
It is ideal to have your first orthodontic check-up around the age of 7. About 10% of younger children could benefit from early orthodontic care, but most can wait to begin treatment once most of their permanent teeth are present. It is important to see them for their first check-up at a young age to assure they do not need early intervention.
If you see a significant amount of overbite, an underbite, or are just generally concerned, we will be happy to evaluate and guide you.
The first few days of braces cause some discomfort, but it will not result in you rolling around on the floor in pure agony or questioning the meaning of life. It is short-lived and usually just more annoying than anything.
Phase I treatment can be needed for a few reasons: cross bites, severe crowding, self-esteem, or significant bite issues. Correcting these at a young age takes advantage of the fact it is much easier to utilize a child’s growth to expand the jaw and make space for erupting dentition. If you have concerns about your child, we would be happy to evaluate him or her for you.
