Early or Phase 1 Treatment occurs when a young patient, typically between the ages of 6 – 10, has both primary teeth and adult teeth. While not all of our younger patients require Early Treatment, for many Prettyman Ortho patients, it can be beneficial.
Whether your child would be best benefit from Early/Phase 1 Treatment can only be determined by a trained and certified orthodontist. According to the American Association of Orthodontists, the best age to visit an orthodontist is age 7.
