What is Phase 2 Orthodontic Treatment?
Phase II treatment (Braces for teens or adults), if required, begins when all the permanent teeth are present. Braces for kids are very different by necessity.
The purpose of Phase II Treatment is to position all the permanent teeth to maximize their function and appearance. This is done by bonding brackets (braces) to the teeth and then making small bends in NiTi wire making the required adjustments necessary to properly align your teeth.
