Two-phase orthodontic treatment can be very helpful for children that face dental issues that may cause major issues as they grow older.
Orthodontists will use predictable developmental stages to implement two-phase treatments that include preparing a child’s mouth with enough room for their adult teeth, reducing the pressure between the upper and lower jaws, and correcting over and underbites. Doing so can greatly reduce the need to remove permanent teeth later on.
Additional reasons your orthodontist may use the two-phase treatment might include stopping a child’s unusual sucking or swallowing habit and pushing front teeth further in the mouth to reduce the child’s risk of damaging or breaking their teeth.
