Many orthodontic problems are actually preventable when they're discovered early enough. That's why Children’s Dentistry's interceptive program is so important to your child's smile. By guiding jaw development while he or she is growing with interceptive appliances, Dr. Greg can make room for your child's permanent teeth, correct over - and underbites and help avoid more complicated orthodontic problems in the future. What's more, Dr. Greg's interceptive orthodontic program can often reduce treatment time for your child's braces later on. Some of Dr. Greg's interceptive appliances include expansion appliances, space maintainers and retainers.
