People usually come in to see the orthodontist in their teen years, once their adult teeth have settled into place and are in need of some straightening. But sometimes children as young as seven can be recommended to us for what's called interceptive treatment therapy.
Interceptive treatment therapy involves wearing removable dental appliances that coax incoming teeth into the right position, and is used only in cases where we are able to predict serious misalignment.
Depending on the kind of orthodontic help you need, we can fit your child with a wide variety of braces that call less attention to their treatment - and more attention to their individual sense of style and fun - including:
- Clear or tooth-colored brackets
- Interchangeable wires or elastics
- Removable retainers
- Invisalign - invisible, removable alignment trays
