Silver Braces For Children

An interceptive phase of treatment sometimes requires placing braces limited to the upper and lower front teeth, and first molars. Metallic braces offer the easiest and most convenient way of delivering orthodontic treatment at this age. Plus, the fun of choosing colors will start now!

Interceptive treatment plans are designed to improve the structural foundation and to create space for the larger erupting permanent teeth. Treatment time can be expected to have an approximate duration of 10 to 14 months. Following the completion of this phase of treatment, Dr. Tendler will schedule periodic observation visits to monitor the growth and dental development. Retainers will be used during this period to retain or hold the accomplished results from this interceptive phase, and to help guide the permanent teeth into their proper position.
