Children’s Dental Care: It’s The Little Accomplishments

You might find that as you move through your daily life with your kiddos and you’re doing your best with oral health care and dental hygiene, some days seem like they require a lot of effort. Other days seem easier. The major upside to this amazing adventure? There are some truly delightful highlights along the way made up of little accomplishments that will really make you smile. Consider some examples that our Dallas, TX team loves sharing with you and you’ll realize: You’re doing a great job and for good reason!

Your Child Brushed On His Or Her Own!

Yep, when you look at it from an objective standpoint, it’s just a young human completing a single dental hygiene session. However, in the context of reality, it’s your child brushing all by himself or herself! It’s a little accomplishment but it’s also a huge deal! It marks the potential beginning of your child becoming much more independent with smile care, which means your kiddo is becoming more responsible and is establishing wonderful oral health habits that will last a lifetime.

You Hit Your Stride

When you and your children hit your stride with dental hygiene, it can feel amazing! You will find that over time, you work out any kinks and suddenly, you’re just all standing together, brushing, flossing, nobody is crying, and things are good. What a nice way to protect the oral health of your family! Don’t forget to take just a moment to take it all in. Not quite there yet? We suggest you remember that there are some issues to keep an eye out for that may be disrupting what could be an otherwise lovely brushing and flossing experience:

  • Your child isn’t happy about the flavors of dental hygiene products
  • Your child needs to see us because brushing or flossing is uncomfortable
  • You need to get onto a more consistent schedule, so your little ones expect this time of day

Your Child Has No Cavities!

When you come in to see us for a dental checkup and cleaning and we report to you that your child is in the cavity free club, it’s certainly something to celebrate! Don’t miss out on the fact that this means you’ve been doing a wonderful job at home with dental hygiene and everyone’s effort is really paying off.
