Interceptive Orthodontic Therapy


At Small World Dental, we monitor your child’s teeth for any potential abnormalities such as overcrowding and minor cross bites.


As problems arise we may use the following interceptive techniques to maintain a healthy development of your child's teeth:


  • Shaping baby teeth to make them narrower and help align teeth

  • Minor jaw expansion (correct posterior cross bites)

  • Use of appliances to discourage behaviors that lead to bite changes (example: as finger sucking habits or tongue thrusts)
