Early Orthodontic Treatment in Philadelphia and Hatboro, PA

The American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) recommends that all kids visit an orthodontist by age 7, before their permanent teeth have come in. Early treatment, also known as interceptive orthodontic treatment, or phase 1 treatment, allows our experts to identify any irregular growth patterns and potential issues with your child’s bite before they arise.

At Orthodontics Limited, our goal with early treatment is to help your child achieve optimal dental health and prevent more complex issues in the future. Even if your child doesn’t need to start orthodontic treatment right away, our doctors will be able to monitor your child’s dental growth to ensure their bite and permanent teeth are developing as they should.

Orthodontics Limited has proudly provided orthodontic treatment to the Philadelphia and Hatboro areas for nearly 35 years. We’re here to guide your child’s dental journey, transforming potential orthodontic challenges into stories of success and confidence. Schedule your child’s consultation today.

What Is Interceptive Treatment and How Does It Work?

Early orthodontics is a proactive treatment approach that focuses on diagnosing and correcting potential bite and alignment concerns in children between 6 and 10 years old. Our primary aim is tackling emerging problems early on, creating space for and guiding the proper emergence of adult teeth, and facilitating the proper growth of facial and jaw bones.  

Even while baby teeth are still present, Drs. Pale, Gemmi, and Middlebergs can use state-of-the-art treatment options, tailored to your child’s specific needs, to address various orthodontic concerns like underbites, crossbites, crowding, spacing issues, and more. By intervening early, early orthodontics seeks to mitigate the need for extensive, complex orthodontic treatments later in life.

At Orthodontics Limited, our expertise in early orthodontics enables us to create a smooth, effective treatment journey that will give your child endless reasons to smile.

However, braces for kids cater to the unique orthodontic needs of children in their formative years: they are designed to create space for existing and incoming permanent teeth. Braces are highly effective at correcting complex issues, they are cost-effective, and they can be customized with all kinds of colors to fit your child’s personality and make treatment more fun.

What if My Child Does Not Need Phase 1 Orthodontics?
