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.

Space Maintainers

As part of our interceptive orthodontic treatment services, we are able to provide space maintainers for children who have lost their tooth too soon in their early years. This is generally designed for kids whose full teeth are yet to erupt. Installing braces or other orthodontic treatment may in many ways complicate the further eruption of other teeth but with the space maintainers, your child does not have to worry about adjacent teeth shifting out of position and into the vacant space this causing overcrowded teeth. The space maintainers also ensure that your child can, even after the loss of their temporary teeth enjoy the benefits of permanent teeth grow in the affected area. A space maintainer is an orthodontic appliance designed to keep the space open in the mouth thus allowing permanent teeth to erupt properly without dangers and complications.

Palatal Extenders

Palatal Extenders are recommended for parents whose children suffer from crossbites, overcrowded or impacted teeth. Palatal extenders are custom made orthodontic device that is fitted over several teeth in your child’s mouth. The aim of this treatment device is to expand, thus allowing for more space to be created in your child’s mouth for proper teeth growth and alignment.

Benefits of Interceptive Orthodontics

The orthodontic treatment presents a wide range of advantages to both children and adults. One of the most important advantages of the interceptive orthodontic treatment at an early age is the possibility of preventing further teeth complications that will require further orthodontic treatment later in life.
