Why Choose Sensational Smiles Orthodontics for Interceptive Orthodontics?

What is Interceptive Orthodontics?

Interceptive orthodontics, also commonly referred to as Phase 1 Orthodontics, is a treatment plan that is created for children who do not yet have all of their permanent teeth.   Typically, the child is between the ages of six and 10 years old. It is usually recommended for children who have moderate to severe orthodontic issues occurring early in their development.  Dr. Fran conducts a thorough examination of the teeth, oral cavity, and facial structure to help determine the severity of the problem.  Then a customized treatment plan is created to target the issues before they require more significant intervention.
