Early orthodontics or interceptive orthodontics is a phased type of orthodontics where we extract certain malocclusions during adolescence to avoid adult malocclusion. This can include:
- Expanding the upper jaw to correct a crossbite
- Removing certain baby teeth
- Maintaining space for permanent teeth after the loss of baby teeth
At our South office, we offer orthodontics to make sure your child is set up for oral health success in their adulthood. If you think your child might benefit from early orthodontics, click below to set up a consultation or give us a call!
