What is two-phase orthodontic treatment?

23 May 2019

Orthodontists often refer to treatment as “two-phase.” Phase one relates to any treatment that happens before all the patient’s permanent teeth have erupted.

Phase-one treatment is aimed at making space for permanent teeth or correcting problems like crossbites, underbites, and overbites with conservative devices like expanders or partial braces. It commonly takes place between the ages of six and ten.

Phase-two orthodontic treatment is more comprehensive and occurs after all the permanent teeth have erupted. It is typically only performed after age eleven.
