Our medical panel consists of over 50 highly skilled orthodontists who specialized in Preventive And Interceptive Orthodontics treatment.
Preventive orthodontics is when the growth and development of the dentition and facial bones are observed from an early age, to predict the incidence of malocclusion and to prevent it from developing. Some of the treatments done are educating the parent and the child, monitoring deciduous teeth, caries control, fabricating habit breaking appliances and space maintainers, and frenectomy.
Interceptive orthodontics is when treatment is done for abnormalities in the teeth alignment or facial bones. Unlike preventive dentistry, this type of orthodontic treatment is done after some defect has set in. The procedures include serial extraction, crossbite correction, muscle exercise, using headgear, chin cap, and face mask.
