When you’re a kid, you have lots of questions about just about everything. As a result, of course, the natural thing is to ask for information from those around you who probably know more. You know, like Mom and Dad! As you’ve realized, you don’t always have the answers to it all and sometimes, you find that your kids pique your curiosity, as you’re left wondering: Hmm, what’s the answer? Science In The Park, a program offered in our Dallas, TX community by the Perot Museum of Nature and Science, makes it fun for the whole family to learn more through some outdoor fun in the park, so don’t miss this upcoming installment of Skeletons: Animal X-Rays!
We know that it feels like your kids just started back at school. We know that it’s still shockingly warm outside in our Dallas, TX community. However, the calendar tells us that it is officially fall. So, with that said, we welcome in the autumn season! As a result, our team also feels compelled to remind you that there’s end of year smile care to consider (yes, even though it probably doesn’t feel like the end of the year yet). With just a few months left before it’s time to hang a brand new calendar on the wall for 2020, it’s time to buckle down and make sure you’re getting those final goals accomplished for your children’s oral health!
Children’s dental care isn’t vastly different from routine adult dental care, but there are several unique concerns that children have that most adults don’t. Therefore, children’s dentistry includes a number of specific measures designed to help children specifically boost their oral health and dental hygiene efforts. For example, at our Dallas, TX, children’s dental office, we can often recommend topical fluoride treatment and dental sealants, which are non-invasive treatments designed to offer enhanced protection for your child’s teeth against harmful, cavity-causing oral bacteria.

Yes, your kids love juice. You may even love juice! You might enjoy the stuff that has added sugar some of the time. Or, you may avoid it at all costs. You may even make your own at home. No matter the type you and your kiddos like, our Dallas, TX team wants you to recognize that as yummy as it can be, it’s also a beverage that can pose a considerable threat to your children’s oral health (and yours, too!). So, take a moment to learn a bit more, as you become attuned to ways you can more safely sip, should the mood strike!
It’s about that time of year again! The weather is acting as though it just might cool off in our Dallas, TX community, which is our version of welcoming in the autumn season! Of course, with the joy and coziness of fall comes the promise of something very particular. If you guessed pumpkin carving, pumpkin pie, pumpkin spice drinks, and all other pumpkin-related delights, you got it! With that said, if pumpkins put a smile on the faces of your family members, then you will probably want to make it out to the upcoming Dallas’ Original Pumpkin Festival. It’s sure to be something special!
You know, after you’ve done even a tiny bit of investigative work, that when your child receives a preventive dental visit with us (including a dental checkup and dental cleaning), one aspect of care will include digital X-rays. This is just like what Mom and Dad receive during their smile care. With that said, however, you may not have ever given much thought to dental imaging in the past but now your child needs it and you have some questions for our Dallas, TX team! Of course, we welcome your inquiries and look forward to helping you feel confident about this and all aspects of dental care.
There are some changes that might occur with your child’s smile or dental hygiene routine that aren’t really cause for concern. Things like your child’s first loose tooth, a sudden preference of one particular toothpaste flavor over another, and other shifts are just a natural part of being a kid! However, there are other changes that you might notice that will call for a dental visit with our Dallas, TX practice, just as soon as you can schedule one, to ensure all is well with your child’s oral health. Remember, it’s always better to make sure things are just fine than to hope and leave your little one’s oral health open to possible damage. See us soon!
Of course, you would love for your children to be the picture of mealtime etiquette! With that said, while guiding your childredn toward good chewing manners (and table manners) in general is certainly a polite thing to do, remember that it’s often also very beneficial for their oral health! To help you feel even more motivated about encouraging kiddos to use a fork and knife, and more, our Dallas, TX team has some interesting tidbits to share with you!
