Regular teeth cleanings and oral exams are critical for your child’s oral health. These biannual appointments allow Dr. Yasi and Dr. Sal to track your child’s oral development and ensure that their bite and teeth are forming correctly. Regular checkups also help prevent cavities and other dental health issues. Cavities are the most common preventable childhood disease in America, and preventive care helps you and your little one avoid the stress and pain of tooth decay. In some cases, if we are able to find decay early enough, we can prevent cavities from forming.
Dentistry is about more than just what we do in the office. Routine appointments give us the opportunity to help you, as parents, encourage your children to take proper care of their dental health at home. Preventive care starts at home with proper daily hygiene habits. We prioritize dental education for children and parents because we want to set your little one up for success and a lifetime of total wellness.
Children are especially prone to cavities due to high sugar intake and improper brushing technique. Fluoride treatments can help prevent cavities and strengthen your child’s teeth. Fluoride is a naturally-occurring mineral that has the unique ability to “remineralize” teeth after enamel has been weakened by decay. Fluoride treatment is quick, completely painless and non-invasive, and you’ll have peace of mind that your child’s teeth are better protected.
Dental sealants are often used to protect a child’s molars from cavities. A dental sealant consists of a specialized resin that is applied to the deep grooves of your child’s molars to help shield the tooth from direct contact with bacteria and acid.
At The Little Royals, we use the latest in digital radiography, which means the highest and safest standards for all of our patients. As the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry explains, “Dental radiographs are valuable aids in the oral healthcare of infants, children, adolescents, and individuals with special needs. They are used to diagnose and monitor oral disease, evaluate dental alveolar trauma as well as monitor dentofacial development.” The need for dental x-rays is on a case by case basis, and our dentists will determine your child's needs based on their individual risk factors with the goal of minimal exposure and maximum protection.
Here at The Little Royals we provide a comfortable dental experience for young children. We know how important it is to get your child's dental health off on the right foot and we will work with them to accomplish this. Contact us today to start your child's dental health journey.
"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!"
