There is no “late” time to start your orthodontic treatment but there is an optimal time. To get the best results at the lowest cost, orthodontic treatment should start as soon as problems become evident—by the age of seven at the latest—according to the American Association of Orthodontists. While treatment is not always a necessity at this age, Dr. John and Dr. Zach can assess the situation and recommend an appropriate time to visit the orthodontist for a consultation. We have built relationships with many orthodontic specialists, including Dr. Brett Finkelmeier, who works out of our Indianapolis office.

When should I have my child see the dentist for their first check-up?

First visit by your child's first birthday. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends a child be seen for their first exam by age one to prevent dental problems.

What is the difference between a pediatric dentist and a general (family) dentist?

Pediatric dentists have two or three years of advanced training following dental school. They have additional certifications for managing infants, children, adolescents, and those with special health needs.

Are baby teeth really that important? They are just going to fall out in a few years.

YES! Primary or "baby" teeth are extremely important. Not only do they aid in chewing and help children speak more clearly, but they also lay the foundation for permanent teeth to erupt correctly.

How often should my child see Dr. John and Dr. Zach?

We typically recommend your child visit our office every 6 months for a dental check up. However, some children may need to be seen more frequently based on their personal oral health.
