Interceptive treatment allows orthodontic treatment to begin much earlier than previously possible. Generally occurring between the ages of 7 and 9, it allows for far more effective and less invasive treatment of common dental issues, reducing, and sometimes eliminating completely, the need for treatment as a teen or adult.
Issues such as misaligned jaws, severely overcrowded or protruding teeth can be dealt with, often before they reach peak point.
Orthodontics is not just for improving the appearance of the smile. Orthodontic treatment improves malocclusions which occur as a result of tooth or jaw misalignment and affect the way you smile, chew and clean your teeth. Left untreated, malocclusions can result in problems as we age. Crowded teeth are much more difficult to clean, which may contribute to tooth decay and periodontal disease, and also result in unnecessary tooth extractions and further misaligned teeth in later life. Protruding teeth are more susceptible to accidental chipping, crossbites can result in unfavourable growth and uneven tooth wear and openbites can result in tongue-thrusting habits and speech impediments.
Interceptive Orthodontics can reduce or eliminate:
- The issue of crowded, erupting teeth
- Facial asymmetry through a misaligned jaw
- The risk of trauma to protruding front teeth
- The need for tooth removal
- The need for orthodontic treatment as a teenager or adult.
Removable braces allow the wearer to eat, brush their teeth and floss as normal. Food stuck in your braces and patchy teeth staining are not a worry. They are also great for those with an active lifestyle, as they can be removed for sport if necessary.
We offer Invisalign at Dental Rooms, an excellent, removable brace option as it is also virtually invisible, with shorter treatment times than traditional braces. This allows you complete discretion during your treatment time and is great when time is an issue.

My speech was slightly impacted for the first few weeks but after that period, it returned to normal. I'm thrilled with the results- my teeth are noticeably straighter. I've had a number of compliments- and feel much more confident about my smile. The service at Dental Rooms has been excellent. Angela and Axa could not have been more welcoming. I had to bring my young baby to many appointments and Axa often entertained him! They were also very understanding when I accidentally missed an appointment. My experience has been great- I'm so glad I did it and I would wholeheartedly recommend Dental Rooms.
