Phase 2

After the teeth and jaw have been properly aligned, the next phase of treatment involves ensuring that the corrected teeth and jaws will not revert to their former alignment. After the braces and space maintainers are removed, retainers are fitted on the patient by the orthodontist.

Retainers are plastic devices worn on the upper and lower teeth. Patients typically wear these appliances full-time at first. However, the time required for wearing them lessens as eventually and as recommended by the orthodontist.

The key advantage of two-phase therapy is that it makes the most of the time when the child is growing to deliver an ideal healthy, functional, esthetic and comfortable result that will remain stable.
