Cleaning & Prevention
Keeping a regular preventative maintenance schedule with your child’s hygienist and dentist at Jupiter Kids Dentistry & Orthodontics helps your child prevent not only tooth decay and periodontal disease but also avoid costly procedures and extra time in the hygiene chair.
A regular home prevention routine usually consists of brushing at least twice a day and flossing at least once per day. But did you know there are other tools to make taking care of your child’s mouth a little easier? Depending on their needs, there are special kinds of toothpaste, rinses, and even flossing aids that can help your child keep their smile bright and healthy for years to come. Jupiter Kids Dentistry & Orthodontics can help your child find the best tools to enhance their daily hygiene routine making your child’s professional cleaning appointments shorter and less stressful.
Another significant factor in your child’s oral health is their diet. Acidic foods and drinks can erode enamel just as a balanced diet can help keep your child’s teeth and gums strong and healthy.
Regular professional exams and cleanings, a dedicated at-home hygiene routine, and a healthy, balanced diet can help prevent minor issues from becoming major procedures.
