Interceptive orthodontics refers to corrective services and adjustments that are made on young patients as their permanent teeth develop to prevent the need for more aggressive orthodontic care later in life. If a child’s teeth are coming in crowded or crooked at age 7 or so, we can help you find a treatment that will correct their teeth while the child is young, and this will reduce the time needed on braces later. For some patients, braces can be avoided altogether.
Dr. Ora Rosenfeld Canter has years of experience helping our young patients achieve healthier smiles with our interceptive orthodontics in Astoria, New York. When you visit our office, we can access the current state of your child’s teeth and help you determine if they would benefit from interceptive orthodontics. If our orthodontist recommends treatment, we will review treatment options to help you arrive at the service that will work best for your child’s specific needs and situation. We invite you to contact our friendly team at our office today to learn more about our comprehensive orthodontic services and to schedule your next appointment. We are eager to help you and your entire family reach the goals you have for your smiles.
