Growth Modification Treatment

Growth modification treatment is utilized in the first phase of a two-stage interceptive orthodontic treatment for children with misaligned teeth and bites. During the growth modification process, we use special appliances to correct the shape, position, and/or width of the jaw bone(s). Growth modification is used when bones are still in the growing process and is most effective during a child’s growth spurts.
