Early (phase I) treatment is recommended when top front or back teeth do not overlap the lower teeth—correction is completed early to promote proper growth of the jaw bones. Early (phase I) treatment lasts only 6-12 months.

(Comprehensive Treatment – Phase II)
Comprehensive orthodontic treatment refers to having conventional braces when most of the permanent teeth have erupted. On average, this occurs at age 11-12. A patient who requires comprehensive treatment will only need this one stage of orthodontic treatment, which usually takes from 12 to 30 months.
