Our practice offers orthodontic care and treatment to all members of your family. Dr. Grob’s Treatment By Twelve’s system is designed to deliver the proper amount and type of care to all patients from age 6 to 60 and beyond.
We encourage you to register all members of your family to benefit from all of the services, (many at no cost to you) that we offer to patients. The Treatment By Twelve’s system is organized into three main categories according to the teeth present in the mouth. Internationally published and highly regarded, this system is based on the tooth eruption chart seen below. Click here to learn more about our Treatment By Twelve plan.
The First Twelve Permanent Teeth usually erupt between ages 6 and 9 (Photo of 6 to 9 year old) It is during this time that we encourage the first evaluation to note habits and medical issues that affect the teeth and jaws and become familiar with our practice.
The Next Twelve Permanent Teeth usually erupt between ages of 10 to 14 (Photo of 10 to 14 year old) This is considered the optimum time for care. Not only are teeth and jaws growing and moving rapidly but this age group is able to attend to appointments much easier. As children get into high school and beyond, activities and scholastics many times make it difficult to attend to appointments regularly.
The Four Twelve Year Molar Teeth erupt from as early as 12 up to 14 (Photo of young adult) After all of the permanent teeth are in is the optimum time to treat some types of malocclusions.
