Kids’ Orthodontics and Braces
Dunn Orthodontics has two convenient locations, serving the cities of Woodbury and Cottage Grove, MN. At Dunn Orthodontics, we deliver the most comprehensive and advanced orthodontic care available in a friendly and welcoming environment. One of our more popular service offerings is early orthodontic treatment, also known as Phase I treatment. The American Association of Orthodontics (AAO) recommends that all children receive, at the very least, an orthodontic screening at the age of 7 allowing for more effective timing of treatment.
If a Phase I treatment is recommended it will commonly involve jaw expansion and a partial set of braces on the front incisor teeth. Phase I treatment can take from 6-12 months generally and is followed by a period of retention while the remaining permanent teeth erupt.
Below you can learn more about the timing of orthodontic treatment including braces for kids. If you have further questions, please check out our frequently asked questions page, or contact us directly, and a team member will be happy to assist you.
