It’s completely understandable. You’ve watched your child grow and develop and you’ve been monitoring those lovely teeth since the very first one arrived! If you tend to be someone who is prone to worry, then worrying about your child’s smile is not out of the ordinary. However, it’s probably exhausting and you are likely well aware that the stress is not doing you any good. What you want is to feel you’re protecting your child’s oral health but while you get to do so with a relaxed, confident, if not enjoyable approach! Is there anything you can do, you wonder? Of course, our Dallas, TX team works with parents every day and we have some simple but very effective suggestions that should help.
Of course, there are the obvious things you should absolutely encourage in terms of your child’s smile health! Keeping a scheduled routine for dental hygiene is wonderful, encouraging kids to participate in selecting dental care products for themselves is a good thing, and promoting the decision to eat good-for-your-teeth snacks and meals is smart! With that said, there may be some little issues that can prove dangerous for your child’s oral health that are actually fairly easy to overlook! Our Dallas, TX team is here to make sure you know just what they are, so you can continue on with your solid approach to smile protection!
If you and your family members have quite a love of all things cocoa-related, then this upcoming event is something you will all find yourselves over-the-moon excited to attend!

Seeing a quick flash of your child’s smile and recognizing that something has changed with your kiddo’s gums can be a bit shocking. It can also leave you feeling unsure about how to proceed. Should you just monitor the situation, continuing with daily dental care, as you see whether things get better or stay the same (or worsen)? Or, is this one of those moments when you should call our Dallas, TX team to set up a dental checkup just to be on the safe side? Of course, we suggest the latter. Remember that any shift in the appearance of your child’s gums could mean a gum health issue and is always worth investigating. Come in for care soon!
Of course, you keep up with your dental checkups and cleanings with us! Generally speaking, when you’re on track with the professional part of your dental care with our Dallas, TX practice and you and your child are on track at home with dental hygiene, oral health remains on track, too! However, when bacteria make their way into a tiny groove, they can still cause a cavity. Though it’s not likely, the possibility of it means it’s nice to have some idea of what to expect, so you know to call us if signs of possible tooth decay begin to show up. Learn more (and remember, whether it’s decay or otherwise, we are here to fix it!).

Remember that flossing, of course, is something that you and your child should be doing every single day in order to maintain your best oral health. With that said, you may find yourself feeling stuck between a rock and a hard place when this part of dental hygiene isn’t going so well. You could just give up altogether. However, you’re not sure what to do about the challenges that are making what should be a simple means of smile protection very difficult. Not to worry!

Of course, you probably always imagined the exciting experience of looking on, as your child’s baby teeth fell out one by one and that is probably what you’ll end up getting to do! With that said, however, it is always possible for the unexpected to show up. Perhaps your child ends up with an accidentally damaged baby tooth. Maybe a loose tooth is loose for a very long time but just doesn’t fall out! In such cases, your kiddo may require baby tooth removal! Today, our Dallas, TX team offers you some extremely important reminders that will provide you with some very necessary insight to keep in mind, should you need it!
The Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden! What’s not to love? The beautiful, breathtaking gardens? The educational exhibits? The family-friendly events? Perhaps the fact that the cost of admission sometimes keeps you from visiting quite as often as you’d like. Good news for our Dallas, TX community: It’s August, which means August Dollar Days at the arboretum! Get your fill of all things botanical and soak up the summer sunshine before the month is through!
You may have scheduled and attended dental appointments for yourself many, many times in your life, none of which managed to cause you any sort of anxiety.

First, our Dallas, TX team reminds you to rest easy: This is a very normal reaction. As for the questions you have and the reassurance you need, we’re happy to help. Consider some initial FAQs and bring all other questions in with you to your child’s visit (which will, we assure you, be a wonderful experience!).
