The Benefits Of

Interceptive Orthodontics

During the ages of six to thirteen years, the child undergoes enormous growth. Children’s teeth are transitional and undergo many changes. Orthodontic treatment needs can be picked up in this early stage. This is termed as interceptive orthodontics. This takes advantage of the child’s growth potential and can lessen orthodontic treatment time later.

Examples of early treatments.

Correcting thumb-sucking habits.

Misaligned jaws.

Narrow dental arches.

Protrusive front teeth.

Crowded teeth.

Meet Dr. Anu Korada

Having trained as a dentist in the UK, I was interested in pediatric dentistry from the beginning. I was drawn to the fun, innocence and honesty of children. Being a mother of two young children, I understand what the important things are when bringing up children. That’s why we as a family chose Maple Ridge, Canada to move from London, UK.

I have over ten years of experience working in pediatric and special care dentistry including Canada and the UK. I also love teaching Pediatric Dentistry at UBC and BC Children's Hospital.

I strongly believe that good oral hygiene is the gateway to good overall general health. Providing children positive experiences and developing coping skills for the not-so-good experiences will strengthen them and prepare them for adulthood.

Although baby teeth are temporary, they play a vital role: they support the growth of the jaw and face. They provide spacing for the adult teeth to grow. My role as a pediatric dentist is to provide an environment that is confortable for your children and work with the parents to encourage a positive attitude towards oral health.
