According to the American Dental Hygienists Association, teenagers face unique challenges that younger children do not. As your teenager’s mouth reaches a certain stage of development, orthodontic issues can creep in. The Little Royals checks for these issues during each routine appointment to ensure that your child’s development is on the right track. Healthy eating habits also play an important role in a teenager's oral health. Diets loaded with sugar and carbohydrates pose a challenge to adolescents and teenagers, so you’ll receive all the support you need from our team at The Little Royals to ensure your teen is on the right track.
Any child, no matter how old, should see a dentist every six months. This ensures that preventive measures are taken to help your teen or pre-teen avoid common dental health issues like cavities and periodontal disease. Visiting a dentist regularly also make your child more familiar with the process and will help them avoid dental anxiety in the future.
Adolescent appointments typically include a comprehensive exam, cleaning, dietary and oral hygiene counseling, as well as X-rays when needed. Our dentists will address any issues or abnormalities that we see and work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan to get your child back to optimal health, if necessary.
Pre-teens and teens go through a lot of developmental and emotional changes as they transition into adulthood which can often lead to forming unhealthy habits, such as dietary changes and poor oral hygiene practices. Risk for cavities and gum disease increases in these years as well. Having a dental home that can monitor and address brushing habits, dietary habits, and prevention techniques, and can also follow up on their dento-facial development, is essential.
"My daughter had a great first dentist appointment experience. The office is beautiful and clean and Dr. Sal was very knowledgeable. He took his time and was very patient with my daughter. I couldn't believe how well my 19-month-old daughter sat while getting her teeth cleaned. She loved the artwork and felt very comfortable with the dentist and staff. They went out of their way to make sure my daughter felt comfortable in her new surroundings. I loved this office and would highly recommend them."
"Our first visit was this morning with Dr. Sal and now it's hours later and I have not been able to stop telling my family and friends how incredibly happy we are that we found The Little Royals. The office is extremely kid friendly. It's set up for kids of all ages and families of all types. This was my 2-year-old's first visit to a dentist so of course everyone was a little apprehensive. Dr. Sal and his staff made all of us feel so comfortable and I appreciate the extra time, patience and care he gave us. If you are looking for a pediatric dentist in Jupiter, this is it. This is where you need to go."
"If I could give them 10 stars I would, hands down the best dentist I’ve been to. They really knew how to handle my son and his nerves and made him extremely comfortable. Dr. Yasi and her staff were very welcoming and explained everything in detail! Glad to have found my son's new dentist!"
