Yes, we know that just a quick reminder about back to school isn’t really going to cut it. You need some serious reinforcement and you need it now! Beyond getting fillings completed and checkups and cleanings on the books, you might wonder what to do at home now that it’s not just a fun free-for-all all the time. An actual schedule and some amount of structure must be put back into place to ensure everyone’s smiles are on track, brushed, flossed, healthy, ready for school, ready for bed, and more every day. Phew! Lucky for you, our Dallas, TX team just happens to really love helping out with these oral health details!
Did you know that National Farmers Market week takes place from August 5th through 11th? It’s true! So, how might one go about honoring this exciting time? Well, if the Dallas Farmers Market has anything to do with it, you just might bring the kiddos with you to the upcoming Watermelon Festival for some delicious fun!
As temps heat up in Dallas, TX and continue to soar, you may notice it takes a toll on the whole family! Feeling a little bit thirsty? Tired? Sort of wiped out after even a short walk? It’s important to keep in mind that just as the high heat can be quite hard on your overall health, it can become a serious factor for your family’s smiles. To keep up with your efforts in protecting your child’s oral health, considering some important details to keep at the forefront of your mind throughout these very hot summer days is going to be a great help for the kids and for Mom and Dad, too! Simple precautions are all you need.
We know that when you’re caring for your kids, you can feel a little (or a lot) on edge about every last thing you do for them. When you transfer their care into the hands of someone else, such as our Dallas, TX dental practice, you may find that just the thought causes you some stress. If this type of hesitancy is causing you to feel like getting started with professional dental care for your child is very difficult to approach, we have the easiest solution for you: Schedule a first dental visit. Why is this such as simple way to begin, you wonder to yourself? Take a moment to consider the reasons!
We know. It’s hard to believe! We were just welcoming in the summer season and now, here we are, talking about back to school plans. Fortunately, there’s still some time left to soak up what’s left of the glorious time off from school! There also happens to be just enough time to schedule and come in for a dental filling with our friendly team in Dallas, TX if your child has a cavity. Not sure that you really want to spend those last golden rays of sunshine at our practice before your child’s first day back to school arrives? We have some compelling reasons we think just might convince you it’s a fantastic idea!
Yep, this one is just as much for for Mom and Dad (if you’re into comics, of course) as it is for the kiddos! Enjoy yourself on this family-friendly outing as you prepare to look at a surprisingly expansive selection of comics, comics, and more comics! It’s the North Texas Comic Book Show!
Of course, when you’re doing everything you can to keep your child’s smile health on track, it’s natural for some worry to creep in. You worry about your child developing excellent dental care habits, you worry about your child ending up with a cavity and what that could mean, and when your child shows up with a chipped tooth, you worry about that, too! While we certainly never suggest a lax approach to care, we’d love to take some of the stress off by reminding you that worrying is not necessarily your best solution. Instead, keeping up with the essential services provided at our Dallas, TX practice may be what you need.
There are oh so many, “I have no idea what to do!” moments that come about when you have a child. Sometimes, you can wing it! Other times, such as with dental emergencies and otherwise, you may find yourself in a bit of a panic. You want to make wonderful choices for everything from dental hygiene to sudden concerns that present themselves but since you’re not a dental professional, figuring out the best course of action on the fly isn’t always something that’s very easy to accomplish. For issues pertaining to urgent care needs for smiles, remember we offer emergency dental care! For now, of course, we would love to address some worries that come up quite frequently, so you can easily avoid common issues (or handle them should they arise).
You might not worry too much about tooth erosion. You may figure this is something that adults should worry about but that it’s not really a concern for a child. Or, this may be an issue that’s off of your radar completely! What we’d like to remind you is that it’s a problem that can negatively affect anyone’s tooth tissue, young (or more mature) in a serious way. What is it, you wonder? Well, it’s the stripping away of a tooth’s outer layer (which we call enamel). This is bad because teeth rely on enamel to act as protection and to present a white, lovely appearance. As it wears thin, teeth can look yellow and teeth become weak. Consider a few things that may be leading to potential problems for your child’s smile, so you can be careful.
The weather outside can be frightfully hot during the summer. If you need a chance to feel refreshed, and enjoy a little cheer, check out the Christmas In July celebration being held at the Bishop Arts District! On the evening of Saturday, July 21, you and your family can go out and enjoy a special summer snowstorm, hear live music, take pictures with Santa Claus, and enjoy a special story time with Mrs. Claus! Attendees can also take part in a scavenger hunt and pajama costume contest. The summer should provide families with many fun outings. Your Dallas, TX pediatric dentist’s office wants you to make the most of the season, and we can help to make sure your child returns to school at the end of summer with a healthy, happy smile! (more…)
