Developing healthy smiles for teens and young adults
Adolescent Orthodontics, generally referred to as Phase II Orthodontics, is what most people think of when considering an orthodontist. It involves the interception and correction of any problems that occur with permanent teeth. Examples include crossbite and jaw alignment issues. Orthodontists may delay treatment until all the adult teeth have emerged, but Phase II Orthodontics generally begins between ages 10 and 12. Treatments offer permanent solutions to improve function and stability of a person’s jaw, bite, and mouth.
After consulting with one of our specialists, patients can expect recommendations based on their needs. Braces are typically used for straightening and moving teeth, followed by a removable retainer. Other options include clear aligners, commonly referred to as Invisalign.
Most Phase II treatments last between 12 and 30 months. It is important during that time to adhere to whatever guideliens have been provided in order to avoid prolonging treatment durations. Once appliances are in place, routine office visits are at six-to-eight-week intervals. Periodically, we may need to see you sooner or less often, depending on the treatment and where you are in the treatment.
The cost varies per treatment, but we will work directly with you to make the treatment affordable. We offer customized and flexible payment programs to make payment easier for you. To get an idea of how much your treatment will cost, schedule a free consultation with us!
The goal of Phase II Orthodontic treatment is to give patients a healthy smile. Aside from aesthetics, however, braces or clear aligners can help prevent more serious problems later. An uneven bite, for example, can lead to increased risk of tooth decay or any other periodontal diseases. Likewise, TMJ Disorder can also occur from an uneven bite, leading to consistent headaches and jaw pain. For these reasons, we always recommend starting orthodontic treatment as soon as the need is identified. Younger patients have more flexible jaws and gums, making the treatments much more effective. At Burg Orthodontics, we love working with adolescents too, making the experience more fun for everyone!

They were so friendly and my daughter loved them! They made sure I understood everything before doing any work. I really felt like they loved my girl and wanted to make her comfortable. I would recommend them to everyone!- Heather H.
Love Burg!! The dentists are fantastic, able to explain exactly what is needed and why. And they talk to my boys, instead of only to me; they include then kids in the decisions. Very patient and friendly. Love the front desk staff, too.- Jessica K.
What a great experience! My son has been terrified of going to the dentist. The staff was so kind and engaging that he didn’t even bat an eye. They were able to get more done with no tears then the past three dental offices we went to.- Sarah P.

I love this place, but what is more important is that my daughter loves this place. She looks forward to going to the dentist. I did not grow up with the same experience. I’m confident that she is being taken care of on every visit.- Sara R.
Amazing staff. From the receptionist to the doctor himself. Very patient with my fifteen month old who wouldn’t lay down to me filling out my paperwork with a newborn in tow. Our family will be returning for sure!- Jon & Melissa L.
The staff is so great with my kids. On the way for his visit he says, “I LOVE going to the dentist!” Which is funny considering how much I dread it! Dr Nielsen is so nice and takes the time to explain everything he sees.- Christina T.
