Two-phase treatment is a method of realigning teeth with braces that requires two separate phases. Each phase focuses on a different goal. The first phase is about aligning the or the skeletal or orofacial structure. The second phase focuses on correcting the teeth for a straighter smile. Whether or not two-phase treatment is necessary will depend on each patient’s situation, but it may require a longer process than traditional braces. The time between each phase is also contingent on every unique circumstance. Let our orthodontists know if you think you need two-phase treatment for yourself or your child and they can help assess whether it would be beneficial.
