Dr. Michael Hiller and Dr. Brooks Hummel provide interceptive orthodontic care to help identify any dental problems in children’s development. Interceptive orthodontics can help children’s teeth to develop correctly, reducing future problems and helping them to enjoy healthier smiles. Please call 225-924-7367 for more information on interceptive orthodontics in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and to make your child’s appointment with our caring orthodontists.

While your child’s teeth may appear to be straight, there may be existing or developing problems that only a dental professional can detect. Interceptive orthodontic care can help to identify these problems, allowing our orthodontists to monitor your child’s oral growth and development. Early orthodontic treatment may include:

  • Guiding the growth of the jaw
  • Correcting harmful oral habits
  • Guiding permanent teeth into a better position
  • Lowering risk of trauma from protruding front teeth

We recommend that your child visit our office for the first time by age 7. By this age, many of their permanent teeth have come in, making it easier to identify any potential or developing problems in the teeth or jaws. Early treatment may prevent more serious problems later in life, including issues with the bones and facial structure, and with the placement and development of teeth. Early treatment can also make later orthodontic treatments shorter and less complicated, and can often help provide better results than treatments that begin later in life.

We invite you to contact Hiller Hummel Orthodontics to learn more about interceptive orthodontics and to schedule an appointment with our orthodontists. We are dedicated to helping your child enjoy a healthy smile as they grow.
