If it is best to afford your child more time for tooth eruption and jaw growth, Dr. Tsintolas suggests your child return to the office for periodic monitoring at no charge.  Rest assured, the doctor’s priority is the individual child. He will not recommend unnecessary treatment, nor will he push treatment earlier than optimal.
