Introducing our Phase one treatment

Dr. Semaan believes every child deserves the option of Phase 1 Treatment.

As a child grows, their smile grows with them. Even with baby teeth, it may be the perfect time for children aged 7 to 11 to start early interceptive orthodontic treatment.

This is also referred to as ‘Phase 1 Treatment’. Dr Semaan believes every child deserves the option of Phase 1 Treatment.​

The goal of Phase 1 Treatment is to develop young jaws and/or arches to make room for existing teeth and for incoming permanent teeth.

Phase 1 treatment can:

• Prevent pre-existing bite issues from getting worse

• Fix existing teeth straightening conditions

• Improve the appearance of a growing child’s smile

• Correct oral habits such as thumb sucking or tongue thrusting

• Reduce the length of necessary treatment later in life​

What is Invisalign First

Much like Invisalign* for teens and adults, Dr. Semaan designs aligners custom-made to your child’s requirements.

Invisalign* first offers a predictable and gentle way to treat a broad range of issues in growing teeth early. These included crossbites, overbites, and spacing.

*This product is not available for purchase by the general public. Always follow the directions for use.

What are Space Maintainers?

Baby teeth serve a vital role in holding the space for adult teeth to grow into. When lost too early, a space maintainer is placed to guide permanent adult teeth into the correct space. 

Space maintainers can be in place for up to 2-3 years and, in some cases, until the adult teeth grow into the space(s) held open.
