Phase One

phase one

Some children benefit from Phase One or "early" treatment in the mixed dentition, prior to the eruption of the full set of permanent teeth. Dr. Waldman is specialised in this type of treatment and will advise you if your child will benefit from this treatment approach. Some examples of the problems that benefit from Phase One treatment are: 

  • Habits (finger or thumb sucking)
  • Severe overbite
  • Cross-bite of posterior (back) or anterior (front) teeth
  • Severe Crowding
