Preventative Care

Poplin Pediatric Dentistry's Dental Cleaning and X-rays

At Poplin Pediatric Dentistry, we understand the importance of regular dental cleanings and x-rays for your child's oral health. Our team is dedicated to providing gentle, thorough care to ensure your child's smile stays bright and healthy.

Why Regular Dental Cleanings and X-rays Are Essential

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), cavities are one of the most common chronic diseases in childhood. Untreated cavities can lead to discomfort, difficulty eating, and even impact speech and learning abilities. That's why it's crucial to stay current with preventive treatments like cleanings and exams.

Regular dental cleanings help remove plaque and tartar buildup, reducing the risk of cavities and gum disease. Our team is trained to make these appointments comfortable and stress-free for your child, helping them develop positive associations with dental care.

X-rays are also an important part of preventive care, allowing us to detect issues like cavities and checking for developmental abnormalities that may not be visible during a visual exam. We are also able to monitor your child’s oral growth and development. With our advanced digital x-ray technology, we can minimize radiation exposure while obtaining detailed images of your child's teeth and jaw.

Dental Sealants

We also offer dental sealants, a highly effective treatment for preventing cavities in children. These thin, protective coatings are applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth (molars and premolars) to shield them from decay-causing bacteria and food particles. If there are not deep grooves in the teeth and therefore not at a high risk of getting cavities, Dr. Poplin does not recommend placing sealants.

By sealing the grooves and pits where cavities often develop, sealants create a smooth surface that is easy to clean with regular brushing. This helps prevent cavities and protects your child's teeth from decay, ensuring a healthier smile for years to come.

At Poplin Pediatric Dentistry, we believe in personalized care for every child. Before any treatment, we take the time to educate you and your child about proper oral hygiene and nutrition, answering any questions you may have. Our goal is to empower families to take an active role in their child's oral health.
