Orthodontic care in young children is Interceptive Orthodontics. Interceptive orthodontics is a phased type of orthodontics which is the practice of correcting malocclusions as soon as they are detected in an attempt to avoid longer and more difficult types of orthodontic correction later in the adult dentition. Correcting pediatric dental problems early can sometimes eliminate the need for braces later on. Sometimes fixing a crossbite or spacing problems like over-crowded teeth, may eliminate the development of malocclusion. Often, a retainer or limited braces on just a few teeth can correct a developing dentition.
