What is phase 2 orthodontics?

During this phase of treatment, braces and specialized retainers are used for the aesthetics, functionality, and stability of the teeth. In this stage, the dentist replaces the missing teeth and removes or brings down the teeth out of position or the Tones that fail to erupt.

This phase begins after the eruption of all permanent teeth, which might require braces on all the teeth for a few months. The duration of the treatment will depend on the severity of the dental issue. After this phase, the dentist would recommend wearing retainers to ensure your child retains his or her beautiful smile.
