WELCOME TO MCMURPHY ORTHODONTICS!

Two-Phase Treatment

Getting ahead of your child’s facial growth with preventive care.

What is it?

Two-Phase orthodontic treatment is a specialized process that combines tooth straightening and physical, facial changes that occur as your child grows.

Why do we do it?

Extending treatment into phases allows for us to optimize the health, function, and aesthetic of results that will remain stable throughout your child’s life.

The different stages of Two-Phase treatment.

Stage 1: Phase One – Foundation

Phase one is focused on jaw growth and development. We’ll use tools to make room and help accommodate for future permanent teeth that still need to come in. This will also improve the way the upper and lower jaws fit together. Making these early adjustments and closely monitoring development can help save your child from future extractions or complications down the road!

Stage 2: Resting Period

Now we wait for the remaining permanent teeth to erupt within the path that a successful first phase made for them around their existing teeth.

Stage 3: Phase Two

Phase two is where things start to get real with full upper and lower braces. At this point we’re focused on getting every tooth into the exact location that allows your smile to operate at peak functioning order. This phase can typically take up to 24 months, but it’ll feel like no time before you get to reveal your new, beautiful smile.

Some kind words from our friends:

“Thank you Dr. McMurphy for making my experience with adult braces pleasant! My first impression of this office was how spacious and clean it was. Cleanliness is so important to me. Dr. McMurphy didn’t make me feel rushed at all. He addressed all of my concerns and explained the treatment process. He helped me decide which treatment was most appropriate for me. Sherry is so sweet. She was quick and knowledgeable with getting my insurance settled. Maddie did a great job with taking my x rays. I love how this office is about taking care of your patients. Especially since I’m an adult getting braces, I felt comfortable. Thank you Dr. McMurphy and his staff for making my whole visit awesome and personable.”

“I cannot say enough wonderful things about this practice and their staff.  Dr. McMurphy is so personable. He took the time to sanitize and shake my hand! Sherry took great care of all finances; it wasn’t painful at all! Katie put braces on my daughter. She is so kind and patient! I would highly recommend this office to anyone needing braces.”
