The American Association of Orthodontists recommends an orthodontic screening no later than age 7. By this age, the six-year molars and several permanent teeth have erupted, allowing the doctor to effectively evaluate potential orthodontic problems. Recognizing these potential problems early may prevent more serious problems from developing and may shorten and simplify future treatment. At Kristo Orthodontics we provide these early screenings as a complimentary service. There is no charge for the New Patient examination, panorex X-rays, recall visits, and any additional records or extensive consultation recommendations.
