Is Interceptive Orthodontics right for my child?

  • Substandard oral habits such as sucking their thumbs, breathing through their mouth, biting their cheek and nails, and thrusting their tongue
  • Disportional teeth and jaw to their face
  • Underbite
  • Overbite
  • Biting and/or chewing difficulties
  • Pacifier usage over 2 ½ years old.
  • Chronic allergies
  • Airway and/or breathing complications
