The Before and After images can be seen as Phase I and Phase II.
Early phases consist of correcting crossbites and making room for permanent teeth to erupt. A lot of times these two conditions go together. The top teeth are supposed to fit out and over the lower teeth like the lid of a shoebox. There is also an esthetic desire to go through treatment at a younger age.
PHASE TWO or COMPLETE TREATMENT:
This is the age when most treatment is rendered. If all the permanent teeth are in, then treatment can be done at any age. There are benefits to beginning treatment at a certain age with some cases. We offer Conventional metal braces, ceramic braces, and Invisalign®.
