Are you quite as enthusiastic as our Dallas, TX practice is about March Madness? If the answer is yes, then just like us, you have painstakingly filled out your brackets and you are excitedly clearing your schedule to take in as many NCAA Tournament games as possible. If you’ve managed to get the whole family involved, then you’re probably having as much fun as we are! With that said, we thought, why not take this opportunity to help you enjoy yourselves and apply all of this madness to maintaining your best oral health, too? (After all, we are a dental practice, so it’s what we do!).
Just when you thought you had it all figured out, sorted, and planned along with spring’s arrival, our Dallas, TX team comes along with early reminders for summer! Not to worry, these aren’t pressing matters to take action on immediately. Instead, we simply like to offer up some gentle alerts ahead of time, so as you enjoy this lovely spring season, you can begin thinking about what’s coming up for the very warmest of the year’s months as it applies to your kiddos’ dental care!
Whether you missed it last year or enjoyed the opulent indulgence, you have probably been counting down the weeks, days, hours, and minutes until its return: It’s Dallas Pizzafest and the cheesy, delicious goodness is quickly headed our way.

In the ever-growing world that becomes more global on a daily basis and in which social media takes up much of our attention, it’s easy to become sidetracked by parent guilt! One second, you think you’re doing an amazing job and the next, you see a post on Instagram that makes you question every single decision you’ve made in the last 24 hours (potentially including oral health choices for your kiddo). Our Dallas, TX team has some reminders for you that can help you burst that bubble, so you realize that like all parents, you’re doing a great job.
You don’t love thinking about cavities when it comes to your kiddos but you know that tooth decay is always a possibility. Some parents feel extremely stressed out at the thought of the development of even one cavity, while others wonder if they should be more worried. Of course, our Dallas, TX team encourages you to simply take a straightforward look at decay, to understand prevention and treatment, and to stick to the facts. When you do this, you’ll be helping your child maintain excellent oral health through the easy means required!
Babies and art museums…not two things you might immediately think go together. However, just because you have a little one doesn’t mean you can’t indulge your artistic interests. If you’ve been wanting to see the Margarita Cabrera exhibition at Dallas Contemporary, pack up your babe and head over to the museum. Just as early visits to a dental office help familiarize your baby with checkups and cleanings, so visiting an art museum will introduce your child to different forms of art. (more…)
Cavities are the most common threat to your child’s teeth, and preventing them is an important aspect of their routine dental care. The good news is that, while there is no single treatment or dental solution that’s guaranteed to prevent cavities, there are specific measures you can take to help protect your child’s teeth from them. At our Dallas, TX, children’s dental office, cavity prevention and treatment are important aspects of the care we provide. Today, we examine a few of the most effective ways to help your child prevent them. (more…)
Root canal treatment is a popular solution for adults who experience severe tooth decay. When the infection reaches the pulp of the tooth, which is the chamber that houses the nerves and blood vessels, removing the infected tissues is the most effective way of stopping it from growing worse. However, conventional root canal treatment can often be more than a younger, smaller tooth can take. At our Dallas, TX, children’s dental office, we offer a pediatric version of traditional root canal treatment, known as pulpotomy, to address invasive tooth decay in children’s teeth and preserve their healthy smiles.

It’s important to you that your children grow up with a strong understanding of sustainability and green practices. This is something that you have incorporated into your life and it extends into all facets of your daily experience! However, when it comes to your kiddos, you aren’t always entirely sure how to implement green practices, since they’re still learning what that really means. Our Dallas, TX team reminds you that though they may not fully embrace the concept until they’re a bit older, one thing you can certainly do is make dental hygiene a greener experience with very simple decisions. Your kids will pick up on the details and you’ll know you’re headed in the right direction!
When you learn that your child requires a dental filling for tooth decay, you may assume it’s okay to prioritize a long list of other things before you follow through on scheduling a visit. Unfortunately, this may not work out as well as you might hope! Fillings are time sensitive and, since we are well aware that many individuals don’t know this, our Dallas, TX team is ready to explain why! Call us just as soon as you can, so we may restore your kiddo’s oral health.
