If you have a child between the ages of seven and eleven you should bring him or her in for an evaluation at our orthodontic practice, Quinn, Mariotti and Abod Orthodontics. Just one of our expert orthodontists is Dr. Quinn. Our orthodontist in Scranton will review your child’s bite and see if any orthodontic problems are emerging which would benefit from interceptive orthodontic care.

Today, interceptive orthodontic care is the recognized way for young children to receive preventive orthodontic treatment early on, before the age of 11. Traditionally, most patients did not begin their orthodontic treatment until they had all permanent teeth in their mouth and a bite problem was diagnosed. This generally occurred around the ages of 12 to 14. However, it has been discovered that waiting this long to receive orthodontic care often means that there needs to be teeth extractions of permanent teeth in order to make space for orthodontic movement. Additionally, more extensive movement of teeth is needed, and more involved orthodontic appliances are necessary in order to help create the permanent smile. Our orthodontist in Scranton knows that some of these more involved orthodontic appliances are met with poor patient compliance However, it is also known that when interceptive orthodontic treatments are performed early on, between the ages of seven and 11, there will be a greatly reduced need for teeth extractions, and teen orthodontic care will be much less involved and less costly. Oftentimes interceptive orthodontic care includes arch expansion, which makes room for permanent teeth. Growth appliances can also be used to enhance jaw growth and makes subsequent orthodontic treatment much simpler. Guided jaw growth can be easily achieved during the years that the jaw is still growing. This type of early intervention care is known as Phase 1 interceptive orthodontic care. Phase 2 begins years later when the child is a teen.

When you come to see our Scranton orthodontist you will be able to be seen by one or several of our fine dentists, just one of whom is Dr. Quinn.

At our orthodontic practice, we offer many different types of orthodontic services. If your child is between the ages of seven and 11, he or she may qualify for Phase 1 interceptive orthodontic care. Interceptive orthodontics was created to address developing orthodontic problems at an early age. This means that the patient will need fewer tooth extractions and less involved care when they reach their teens, and are ready for Phase 2 care. When a patient is in their teens they are able to receive treatment with many different types of braces at our office. We are able to provide patients with all types of orthodontic care ranging from traditional metal braces to the most innovative braces technology. The goal of our orthodontic care is to receive the very best aesthetic results, in a way that will provide the patient with a healthful smile that works their overall face structure. We also are happy to welcome adults into our orthodontic practice. Many of our adults enjoy being treated with Invisalign invisible braces. These braces are actually a series of clear plastic aligners which are worn sequentially until the patient has achieved their new smile. Depending on the bite being corrected, a patient’s individual set of aligners can have anywhere between 15 and 45 aligners in it. Our patients enjoy the fact that they can receive orthodontic care in this manner, without anyone even knowing that they are receiving it; they are able to attend work and social situations without anyone even knowing that they are being seen by our Scranton orthodontist.
