Sometimes recommended for children 7-10 years old

Orthodontists may, in some cases, recommend a "Phase I" device which could cost up to $2600.00 stating:

  • This may shorten the time required for Phase II - Braces.
  • May also prevent the need for extractions.

Phase I devices are not covered by LEHB under any circumstances!

  • Some doctors will recommend Phase I and the desired results are not produced.

Suggestion - If a Phase I device is recommened:

  • Call LEHB and request an independent second opinion to ensure the device will help your child.
  • Find out what a "fair" price for a Phase I device would be.
