Phase 1 early treatment, also known as interceptive orthodontics, is a preventative approach targeting children aged 7-10 with developing dental issues. The goal is to intercept and address problems early to simplify later orthodontic treatment, minimize the need for tooth extraction, and prevent more serious complications.
During a Phase 1 treatment, your child may receive partial braces, orthodontic appliances, or space maintainers, depending on their needs. The process starts with a comprehensive evaluation by an orthodontist, such as our own Dr. McDaniel in Jacksonville, FL, to identify any potential issues.
The length of Phase 1 treatment varies, but it typically lasts 9-12 months. Following this, most children wear a retainer and enter a resting phase while waiting for the remaining permanent teeth to come into place.
Most children experience minimal discomfort during Phase 1 treatment. Some may feel slight pressure or soreness when a new appliance is first placed, but this usually subsides quickly. At Ortho 99 Plus 1, we prioritize our patient’s comfort during every procedure.
The cost of Phase 1 treatment in Jacksonville varies depending on the specific treatment plan. At Ortho 99 Plus 1, we believe in affordable orthodontics, which is why we offer a variety of payment options, accept orthodontic insurance, and are dedicated to working with families to ensure they understand all costs upfront.Financing Options
