There are several orthodontic treatment options, but the right one will depend on your specific case and what options your orthodontic offers.
Phase 1 Involves partial braces orthodontic treatment that occurs when you have mixed dentition. It’s an ideal option if you don’t want full treatment and commonly occurs when a patient is between 7 and 12.
The length of treatment varies depending on the severity of the case and the patient’s age. Younger jaws are more responsive to orthodontic treatment.
Phase 2 Full orthodontic treatment is recommended for patients with only secondary teeth. It uses full braces and sometimes appliances. Here, many patients can choose between metal braces, iconix braces, and invisalign.
Before making any decision, consider the pros and cons of each treatment option.
