Most patients will require a second phase of treatment after the remainder of the permanent teeth erupt , although occasionally further treatment is not necessary. This later treatment (Phase II) will be shorter and less complex than what would have otherwise been necessary. For example, the removal of permanent teeth may be avoided by having Phase I treatment. This second phase of treatment is often just to align all the teeth into a perfect position, or detail the bite—with the bulk of the correction being completed in the first phase.
