Two Phase Orthodontic Treatment

Dr. Lee recommends the two-phase orthodontic treatment when it comes to braces for kids if it will maximize a patient’s ability to attain an ideal smile. Two-phase treatment is the best way for some patients to straighten their teeth, improve their bite, and enhance their facial features.

Phases of Orthodontic Treatment

Phase 2 braces for kids consists of two phases of orthodontic treatment in Burlingame, Millbrae, and San Bruno, CA.Phase One: Laying the Foundation for a Beautiful Smile

During Phase One, our team will influence the jaw to develop properly and promote the correct eruption of adult teeth. Two-phase orthodontic treatment can help children avoid:

  • Malocclusion (bad bite)
  • Bite discomfort or difficulty chewing
  • Speech impediments
  • TMJ pain
  • Tooth extraction
  • Surgical treatments
“Dr. Lee is very personable… She has a very caring demeanor.”—Rick

Resting Period

A resting period is necessary in the two-phase treatment process. During this resting period, the remaining permanent teeth are left alone as they erupt without interference. A successful first phase treatment will ensure that the new teeth erupt properly and with plenty of space.

Phase Two Braces: Perfect Your Smile

Everybody wants a healthy and attractive smile. During phase 2 of braces, Dr. Lee will make sure each tooth is in its ideal location in the mouth. Our team will establish harmony between the lips, jaw, tongue, and teeth. This will guarantee a functional and confident smile for years to come!

What If I Forego Two-Phase Treatment?

If Dr. Lee advises that you take advantage of two-phase treatment, delaying or foregoing orthodontics may result in more invasive treatments later on. In many cases, receiving early treatment is more effective, comfortable, and affordable than putting it off.
