Interceptive Orthodontic Treatment
The goal of this phase is to compliment your child’s growth. By intervening early, the orthodontist can take advantage of the child’s stage of development and alleviate more invasive and drastic procedures needed later. The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that all children get a checkup with an orthodontist no later than 7 years old, to see if they would benefit from early intervention.
