Early Intervention

The two-phase growth modification service has been designed to correct jaw imbalances in growing children. By redirecting your child's jaw growth early on, Dr. Victor Schacher helps to minimize the risk of future dental problems in later life such as protruded front teeth, abnormal swallowing and speech issues.

As explained by the clinic, initiating early treatment in your child’s growth window reduces the likelihood of them needing invasive jaw surgery later on. “Early diagnosis and treatment can guide erupting teeth into a more favorable position, preserve space for permanent teeth, and reduce the likelihood of fracturing protruded front teeth,’ explains Dr. Victor Scahcher. “In other words, early treatment can simplify later treatment, after all the permanent teeth erupt.”

How does it work?

The clinic’s growth modification treatment happens in two phases, the first focusing on ensuring the upper and lower jaws are growing in alignment. Following this phase, your child will enter the ‘rest phase’, where their permanent teeth are given time to erupt. During this time, Schacher Orthodontics offers regular 4-6 monthly observation appointments to monitor your child's teeth growth, checking they erupt in the correct sequence and position.

Commonly referred to as ‘the Orthodontic Supervisory Program’, this observation window allows Dr. Schacher to monitor patterns in teeth eruption. He explains how the early removal of baby teeth can reduce overcrowding, helping teeth to erupt in a more uniform position. This can reduce the treatment time of phase two, cutting down on the length of time needed for braces.

Once all permanent teeth have grown, the second phase of treatment begins with teeth alignment. Your child will no doubt be asked to wear braces for some time, followed by a retainer to maintain their progress. “Braces can improve the function of the bite and teeth, improve the ability to clean the teeth, prevent wear on the teeth, and increase the longevity of natural teeth over a lifetime,” says Dr. Schacher.

Schacher Orthodontics’ two-phase growth modification service helps treat a range of dental problems in children, including protruded front teeth, crooked faces and open and deep bites.
