Interceptive Orthodontics identifies children’s teeth that are coming in crooked or crowded, usually by the age of 7. This is the best time to begin to correct problems such as dental crowding, too much space between teeth, protruding teeth and extra or missing teeth and sometimes jaw growth problems. By creating the necessary room for teeth early on, you can significantly reduce or even completely avoid the time and cost necessary for orthodontics later in life.
Interceptive Ortho Other
Correcting orthodontic issues using interceptive orthodontics while your children are young (3 to 13 years old) has been proven to stop the onset of more complex orthodontic problems later on. Through interceptive orthodontics, we’re able to help guide the proper development of teeth. By creating the necessary room for teeth early on, you can significantly reduce or even completely avoid the time and cost necessary for orthodontics later in life.
