This session aims to introduce a simple, systematic method for orthodontic examination that can be performed as part of a routine check up. It describes how a systematic approach to an orthodontic examination of a patient can be used to identify an orthodontic problem at an early stage.

Learning objectives

By the end of this session you will be able to:

  • identify a systematic approach to an orthodontic examination
  • recognise and record abnormal skeletal development
  • record and evaluate the normal and abnormal features of the dentition
  • record appropriate findings

From the age of 6, all children should have an orthodontic assessment as part of their routine examination to pick up the presence of a developing malocclusion.
