Orthodontic Treatment In Ottawa

The need for an orthodontic evaluation is important for your child's dental health. In accordance with current concepts of growth and development, we evaluate your child's oral development at every dental check-up. By the age of 7, the first adult molars erupt, establishing the back bite. During this time, many developing misalignments of the dentition become apparent. In some cases, early treatment can correct a developing problem or improve upon a significant esthetic concern.

Two-Phase Treatment

Two-phase treatment occurs when a patient is evaluated and needs intervention before starting regular orthodontic treatment, resulting in two separate times of treatment.

The first phase of treatment, Phase I, usually occurs when the patient is a child and still has many of his or her primary teeth. The Phase I treatment plan can include preventive, interceptive or modifying treatment. Another common added benefit of Phase I treatment is less Phase II treatment time.

Typically, Phase II treatment occurs when most or all of the permanent teeth have erupted. This usually involves placing braces on the patient's teeth and finish correctly aligning them.

Single Phase Treatment

More frequently, a misalignment of the teeth is corrected once most or all of the permanent teeth are erupted. This is usually around 12 years of age.

Invisalign

Invisalign is a type of orthodontic treatment using a series of clear aligners to gradually straighten the teeth.

We will keep you informed as to the progress of your child's developing occlusion as well as discussing your options should treatment be recommended.
