Our team at Farnsworth Orthodontics knows the countless benefits that can come when a child visits the orthodontist in the earlier stages of life. This is why our pediatric orthodontist in Clovis, Carlsbad, and Hobbs, NM, follows the recommendation of The American Association of Orthodontists, which urges all parents to bring their children to be evaluated by a trained orthodontic specialist at the age of 7.

What Is an Early Evaluation?

Keep in mind that early evaluation is not the same thing as early treatment! When your child sees Dr. Farnsworth, he simply takes that opportunity to examine your child’s bite and jaw alignment. This allows him to see if there is any preventative treatment that could reduce the severity or expense of treatment after all the adult teeth have erupted. Most parents who bring their child to Dr. Farnsworth for an early evaluation leave the office again happy to know that orthodontic treatment can wait – or won’t be needed at all.

In the event that your child does need early treatment, our experienced orthodontist will follow our process as explained below.

What Is Two-Phase Orthodontic Treatment?

With two-phase orthodontic treatment, our pediatric orthodontist in Clovis, Carlsbad, and Hobbs, NM, can both straighten your child’s teeth and align their jaw with little to no invasive treatment. It works by guiding your child’s growth before their jaw has fully developed, thus ensuring a healthy and aesthetic smile.

Children aged seven and older who are experiencing issues such as teeth crowding or a misaligned jaw are candidates for early orthodontic treatment. Because children grow rapidly, directing the alignment of the upper and lower jaws is easier than trying to correct a jaw after it is already grown. Early treatment establishes a good foundation that provides adequate room for your child’s permanent teeth.

Two-phase orthodontic treatment can also prevent later removal of permanent teeth to correct overcrowding and/or surgical procedures to align the upper and lower jaws.

Achieve a Harmonious Smile in Two Phases

The first phase of treatment focuses on developing the jaw size to accommodate all the permanent teeth and to align the upper and lower jaws. Certain appliances, determined on a case-by-case basis, will be used to accomplish this and will result in creating enough room for permanent teeth to grow.

The second phase will begin when all permanent teeth have erupted and typically requires wearing braces for up to two years. Retainers are then worn to ensure lasting results. The end result is each tooth having an exact location in the mouth in line with the lips, cheeks, tongue, and other teeth. When this harmony is established, the teeth will function together properly.
