The Most Effective Orthodontic Treatment

Dr. Lauren Windhorst has employed her specialized two-phase treatment method to help countless patients with crooked teeth feel better about their smiles no matter their orthodontic background. By adjusting your teeth or expanding your palate during stage 1, two-phase treatment prepares the teeth for an easier and more comfortable orthodontic treatment during stage 2. Whether you end up getting braces or Invisalign, two-phase treatment can help you achieve a beautiful smile more effectively and efficiently!

Less Time in Braces

One of the hardest things about orthodontic treatment can be spending more than a year in braces. Luckily, with two-phase treatment and the right orthodontic specialist, you don’t have to get stuck with braces for years! Two-phase treatment prepares your teeth for braces or Invisalign so that the orthodontic treatment works faster meaning less time in braces.

Start Early

One of the most exciting facts about two-phase treatment is that it works wonders on young patients. Instead of waiting for adolescence, the two-phase treatment allows an orthodontic specialist to get to work even before all of the adult teeth have come in, straightening your child’s teeth while they are still easy to adjust.

Improves Oral Hygiene

While getting your teeth straightened with two-phase treatment may seem purely cosmetic, it can improve your overall oral health. Straight teeth are easier to clean and orthodontic care helps to eliminate the nooks and crannies that tend to collect plaque and lead to tooth decay.

Confidence is Everything

Two-phase treatment has several confidence-boosting features, namely the fact that 100% of our patients feel better showing off their smile after undergoing two-phase treatment! Being proud of your smile can affect your social life, romantic interests, and your job prospects so don’t delay and talk to an orthodontic specialist today.
