In addition to space maintainers, our office also provides interceptive and pre-orthodontic treatment. Though we recommend an examination by one of our dentist, initial signs that your child may need this treatment include losing baby teeth early or late, sucking fingers or thumbs, difficulty chewing, and exaggerated mouth breathing. Contact us at 775-461-3800 to schedule an appointment at our Carson City, Nevada, location and to see if your child needs interceptive and preventive orthodontics.
