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.

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.

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.
