What is Early Interceptive Growth Treatment?
Early Interceptive Growth Treatment is a specialized orthodontic approach aimed at correcting issues related to bite and teeth alignment in children as young as 6 years old. The primary goal of this treatment is to identify and address potential problems early on, while the child's jaw is still in the developmental stage. By intervening early, orthodontists can help prevent more serious dental issues from developing later on in life. This type of treatment is particularly beneficial because it minimizes the need for extensive orthodontic work that may be required if these problems are left untreated until adulthood.
