Treatment Phases

As in any medical treatment, early treatment is the best, which leads to preventing problems from escalating. Orthodontic treatment can start at different ages, depending on the case.

A special orthodontic device is used to expand the width of the palate or jaw, if necessary. Which helps make more room for the teeth to come in as straight as possible.

A correction device is then fitted to help correct the existing teeth. Adjustments are made as teeth move during treatment.

A second device (a retainer) is fitted, and expected to be worn regularly for another 12 months to prevent teeth from moving back into their old position.
