What is Growth Modification Treatment?

Growth modification is utilized in the first phase of a two-stage interceptive orthodontic treatment for children with misaligned teeth and bites. Treatment for growth modification is used when bones are still in the growing process and is most effective during a child's growth spurts.

Who Benefits from Early Orthodontic Treatment?

  • Children 7 to 9 years old with severe crowding
  • Those with a narrowed upper jaw with or without crossbite
  • Those with habits such as thumb sucking, forward tongue posture (tongue thrust), or mouth breathing
  • Cases with large overjet (overbite)
  • Cases involving overgrowth of the lower jaw or underdevelopment of the upper jaw
