Preventive Treatments in Austin, TX
At Poplin Pediatric Dentistry, we know that you want your child to have the best possible start in life. It's important to make dentistry a part of your efforts, because one of the greatest gifts we can give our kids is a head start on a healthy smile that lasts a lifetime.
Why Your Child Needs Preventive Care
Keeping current with preventive treatments like cleanings and exams are essential if you want to do everything you can to protect your child’s oral health. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that 23% of kids between the ages of 2 and 11 have untreated cavities and that 42% have had cavities. This makes tooth decay one of the most common chronic childhood diseases.
Cavities alone are a big enough problem, but the associated discomfort can also impact your child’s eating and nutrition habits, speech, learning, and even playing. Our goal is to teach you and your child about the benefits of prevention so you’ll be motivated to follow through with important appointments.
You can easily reduce the risk for decay and gum disease with regular dental visits, proper oral hygiene, and healthy eating habits. Dr. Jared Poplin and our friendly team love working with kids, and we think you'll notice the difference. We’ll do everything necessary to make sure your child’s visits are fun, comfortable, and enjoyable. Nothing makes our team happier than seeing our youngest patients leave our office with a happy smile!
Treatment That Fits Your Child’s Unique Needs
Before we make any recommendations for your child’s dental care, we’ll spend some time talking to you about their oral health, hygiene, and nutrition. This information gives us a better understanding of your child’s overall dental health needs.
Based on our evaluation, we may recommend extra brushing or flossing and/or additional applications of fluoride. Dental sealants are another effective way to prevent cavities and keep your child’s teeth healthy. If your child does have a cavity, we will restore it to make sure the tooth stays healthy until it’s ready to come out on its own.
Serious Care in a Fun, Friendly Environment
Your child deserves high-quality pediatric dental care in an environment that helps them feel safe and secure. We know what it takes to keep kids comfortable and happy so they develop a healthy, positive attitude about dental visits. A child’s early experiences with their dentist can have a lasting impression on their lifelong oral health, and we do our best to provide a comfortable, warm office setting.
It’s important for you to know that your child’s dental care is in the hands of a Board Certified Pediatric Dentist who is committed to protecting their oral health. At Poplin Pediatric Dentistry, we wouldn’t have it any other way!
