Any treatment procedure that eliminates or reduces the severity of the developing malocclusion is referred as interceptive orthodontic treatment.By initiating orthodontic and orthopaedic treatment at an younger age the need for complex orthodontic treatment involving multiple extractions and orthognathic surgery is presumably reduced.The goals of early treatment involve correction of skeletal,dental and muscular abnormalities to correct the oral environment before completion of growth and development. Prompt interventions are advised for predisposing conditions that may potentially develop a malocclusion.This review highlights various clinical situations and its effective interceptive management modalities.
