This content was provided by Dr. Hutta "My practice philosophy is to treat at the appropriate time depending on the orthodontic problem. This may require a treatment plan that will be carried out in two separate phases. The first phase may begin while a child has both permanent and baby teeth to take advantage of skeletal growth and development. The second phase of treatment is then started once a full dentition is present. This concept is important because in many cases, if orthodontic treatment is delayed until all permanent teeth are present, you will miss the window of opportunity to affect facial growth that might be a contributing factor to the dental malformation (problem). The only way to determine which type of orthodontic treatment is the most appropriate for your child is to schedule a complimentary exam. During this examination it will be determined and thoroughly discussed which treatment approach will be best for your child."
