Interceptive (or Phase 1) orthodontic care is one of the most rewarding treatment options that we offer to our patients. Interceptive care is exactly that: intercepting a problem at a young age before it gets out of hand. The idea is to shift teeth, manipulate growth, create space for unerupted teeth, break habits and prevent trauma before it is too late. Children between the ages of 7 and 10 are best suited for this sort of treatment as their growth potential is at a maximum.
Phase 2 Orthodontic Care: Most children will require a second, more comprehensive, phase of treatment once most of the adult teeth have erupted. This phase usually requires braces/Invisalign on all of the teeth to in order to create a completely stable, functional and aesthetic bite.
