Although Phase One treatment can mitigate the need for extensive future care, Phase Two treatment is usually required to fully align the teeth and jaws. Our orthodontists will monitor your child’s oral growth and development to determine when phase two treatment should begin. To find out more about Phase Two treatment in New York City, New York, and schedule an appointment with Dr. Kris Togias and associates, call Manhattan Family Orthodontics today.
Phase Two treatment takes place after many or all of the permanent teeth have erupted. This allows the treatment to maximize the appearance and function of the teeth, and it is typically accomplished with treatment such as braces or Invisalign® clear aligners. When combined with the results from Phase One treatment, Phase Two treatment is often reduced in time and requires fewer additional appliances to complete. The length of treatment will depend on the patient’s individual oral health, speed of tooth movement and the type of treatment being received. A retainer will be provided following treatment to help ensure that the teeth remain in their proper positions.
We invite you to contact our office today to schedule a consultation with our experienced orthodontists and learn more about Phase Two orthodontic treatment. We look forward to helping you achieve a healthy, beautiful smile!
