Good Dental Care: Don’t Be Fooled By A Pretty Smile

Yes, of course, it means something if you are staying up to date with all of the details our Dallas, TX team puts forth in regard to preventive dental care. When you’re seeing our team for the visits your children need, when you’re making sure that the brushing-and-flossing thing is happening at home, and more, then a child’s smile that looks brilliant is a direct reflection of the time and effort you have been putting in with smile care! However … remember that just because things look good doesn’t mean that all is well. Give yourself some time to digest this as you learn more about what we mean.

If You Skip Visits Because All Looks Well

Don’t skip visits because your child’s smile looks so healthy, you can’t imagine a checkup and cleaning are really necessary. Remember: The preventive dental care you provide your child is what is keeping that smile in such good shape!

When You Assume Your Child Is Brushing

We are well aware that when your child becomes more independent and can brush and floss on his or her own, the last thing you want to have to do is go back into monitoring mode to ensure all is on track. However, this is going to be a very good idea for a while. Simply check in on occasion! Remember that just because your child’s smile is looking pretty good doesn’t mean that your child is doing an exceptional job with dental hygiene. Take a closer look, and pop your head in during brushing and flossing, just to be certain your child is completing a thorough job!

When You Figure Additional Care Is Unnecessary

Let’s say you come to us with your child for a dental checkup and cleaning. During this preventive dental care visit, we tell you that your child has a cavity. We also mention that dental sealants will be a good idea in the future. However, you take a look at your little one’s beautiful grin that looks perfectly fine and think to yourself, that seems unnecessary … things look just fine! We understand. However, we remind you: In the early days of issues like decay, gingivitis, and more, appearances might be deceiving! Schedule required care to keep that little smile looking and feeling wonderful.
