Some orthodontic problems may be easier and faster to correct if they are identified and treated sooner rather than later, after adult teeth have emerged or facial development is nearly complete. Early or “interceptive” orthodontic treatment is performed while a child’s baby teeth are still present, and options may include either a fixed or removable appliance to move teeth, change jaw position, or hold other teeth in place. It may also be necessary to extract baby teeth in order to promote the eruption of adult teeth.
