Interceptive Treatment Phase
Interceptive treatment is an objective based treatment that will work to resolve problems starting as early as age 7 in order to ensure proper eruption of a child’s adult dentition. We recommend that children come in for a complimentary initial consultation around age 7 to get started on our Growth & Guidance Program. While children at this age may not need treatment at the moment, they sure can grow fast!
Objectives in this phase will vary based on an individual’s needs, and orthodontic treatment may be required. Children who have undergone treatment will be provided with a retainer. Additional complimentary follow up appointments as part of the Growth & Guidance Program will be made every nine to twelve months.
These follow ups will continue until it is determined that they are ready to finish their epic smile and move on to the comprehensive treatment phase.
