At Glow Dental we believe Orthodontic treatment is a crucial aspect of maintaining good oral health and a confident smile. However, many patients wait until their late teens or adulthood to receive orthodontic treatment, which can make the process longer and more complicated. This is where interceptive orthodontics can make a significant difference.

Interceptive orthodontics is a type of orthodontic treatment that is designed to address problems at an early stage before they become more severe. This type of treatment is typically recommended for children between the ages of 7 and 11 and can help to correct developing problems and improve the overall outcome of future orthodontic treatment.

Here are some of the key benefits of interceptive orthodontics:

  1. Early Correction: Interceptive orthodontics allows correcting problems early before they become more severe. This can help to reduce the need for more extensive treatment in the future and improve the overall outcome of orthodontic treatment.
  2. Improved Oral Health: By correcting developing problems at an early stage, interceptive orthodontics can help to improve oral health. This can reduce the risk of more severe problems in the future, such as tooth decay, gum disease, and jaw problems.
  3. Boosted Confidence: Children who receive interceptive orthodontics at an early age can benefit from a more confident smile, which can improve their overall self-esteem and quality of life.
  4. Reduced Treatment Time: By addressing problems early, interceptive orthodontics can reduce the amount of time required for future orthodontic treatment. This can help to minimize the disruption to the patient’s life and can reduce the overall cost of treatment.

Overall, interceptive orthodontics provides a crucial opportunity to address developing problems at an early stage, before they become more severe. This type of treatment can help to improve oral health, boost confidence, and reduce the amount of time required for future orthodontic treatment. At Glow dental we recommend all children should see an Orthodontist by the time they are eight years old. If you have concerns about your child’s oral health, be sure to speak with your child’s dentist to determine if interceptive orthodontics is right for them.

Visited Glow Dental for the first time today, and it's been some time since I had a dental check up. Stephen was an excellent dentist, really put me at ease, and I valued that he could not only talk me through - but also show me - the condition of my teeth and gums. He was really helpful with all my questions too.- Felicity B
