phase I treatment

  • The American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) recommends that a child should get an orthodontic check-up no later than age 7. While most patients do not need treatment at this early age, some will need early treatment to prevent more serious problems from developing at a later age. Through an early orthodontic evaluation, you will be giving your child the best opportunity for a healthy, beautiful smile.
  • Reasons your child may need an early interceptive treatment:
    • Unfavorable jaw growth
      • Underbite
      • Severe overbite
    • Protruding (flared) upper front teeth – increased risk of trauma
    • Severe crowding of front or back teeth
    • Early loss or delayed loss of baby teeth causing problems with adult teeth coming in
    • Oral habits – thumb sucking, tongue thrusting, or mouth breathing
    • Crossbite of back teeth – may cause the lower jaw to shift and grow unfavorably
    • Difficulty chewing or biting
    • An embarrassing appearance
    • If your child is experiencing these conditions, please schedule a consultation today to evaluate if your child will benefit from early interceptive treatment.

Patient Reviews

Their staff are the most friendly. I went in for a root canal and they educated me about the whole process. They took my pain away asap and did the process painlessly. I need to bring my wife here! They also took my insurance without a hassle. Elvira was amazing.

Its been 10 years since I been to the dentist and my previous ones made me hate going but this place is completely different, the entire staff are polite and make you feel welcomed, the facility is super clean, Dr. Cristina Lee walked me step by step of what I needed to get done first.
I was extremely nervous and scared for my first ever root canal but Dr. Lee exceeded my expectations of a dentist and helped me feel relaxed by telling me what she was gonna do and gently numbed my tooth. The procedure was done before I knew it! I also was very impressed by her assistant Elvira, she very informative with any questions I had and just had a calming presence that made me feel more at ease. I still need a lot more work done, but now I am looking forward to visiting the dentist! Thank you again! I can actually smile now and show some teeth:)
