Interceptive Orthodontics


Early detection and treatment
in children and adolescents

Interceptive orthodontics is a branch of orthodontics that focuses on the early detection and treatment of orthodontic problems in children and adolescents. The goal of interceptive orthodontics is to prevent more severe problems from developing in the future and to make later treatments, such as traditional braces or clear aligners, more effective and efficient.

By starting preventative care at a young age and using a minimally invasive approach, it can be kinder to the patient and lead to better outcomes. A full consultation with a dentist or orthodontist is the best way to determine the appropriate course of action, as each patient's situation is unique.

Regular orthodontic screenings during annual check-ups can help identify potential issues early on and guide the growth and development of the jaws and teeth. Addressing problems early can also reduce the need for more extensive and intensive treatment, such as braces, later on.

KDC screens children from a very young age for potential orthodontic problems. We believe that preventive care starts from a young age and our aim is to prevent issues before they are even there.
