Here at Wyman Orthodontics, we are dedicated to helping your child grow and develop properly. If your child is a candidate for early orthodontic treatment, Dr. Julianne Wyman may recommend phase one treatment to help ensure their teeth are aligned and prevent future orthodontic problems from developing. To find out more about phase one treatment in Elkton, Maryland, and make an appointment with our orthodontist, give us a call at 410-398-1221!

Phase one orthodontic treatment is often provided as part of a two-phase treatment plan. This first part of treatment is designed to help the jaw develop properly so that all the permanent teeth are accommodated and the upper and lower jaws fit together correctly. When your child receives phase one treatment, our orthodontist will pay close attention to the growth and development of their jaw to determine which types of treatment will be most beneficial. Ideally, phase one treatment will help prevent the need for tooth extractions or other invasive procedures as well as help your child avoid more complex orthodontic problems.

Following phase one treatment our orthodontist and team will monitor your child’s oral growth and development to determine if full orthodontic treatment with braces or clear aligners will be needed.

We welcome you to contact our team today to learn more about the benefits of phase one treatment and schedule a consultation with our skilled orthodontist.
