Early Interceptive Orthodontics: Phase II

Phase 2 Interceptive Orthodontic Treatment

Early interceptive phase 2 orthodontic treatment is recommended for children after most of the permanent teeth have erupted. Typically, Early Phase Two treatment is recommended for children between the ages of 11-13 years old to prevent future issues that could require more extensive treatment. The objective of this early phase treatment is to position all the permanent teeth to maximize their appearance and function. This is accomplished with braces or Invisalign and usually takes between 12-18 months.

It is less invasive (no headgear required and fewer rubber bands), eliminates the need for extraction, and reduces time spent in full braces. This is especially important for patients as they enter their teenage years. Our team of pediatric orthodontists has treated thousands of young patients and strives to make every visit a fun and positive experience.
