Interceptive Orthodontic Treatment for Kids

Early interceptive phase 2 orthodontic treatment is recommended for children after most of the permanent teeth have erupted. Typically, Early Phase Two treatment is recommended for children between the ages of 11-13 years old to prevent future issues that could require more extensive treatment. The objective of this early phase treatment is to position all the permanent teeth to maximize their appearance and function. This is accomplished with braces or Invisalign and usually takes between 12-18 months.

It requires less patient participation (no headgear and fewer rubber bands), often eliminates extraction of permanent teeth and reduces the time spent in full braces. This is especially important for patients as they enter their teenage years. Our team of pediatric orthodontists has treated thousands of young patients and strives to make every visit a fun and positive experience.
