You have your dentist for grownups, so you figure: Maybe you’ll just bring your children to your practice. After all, they say that they will perform a cleaning and checkup and that they can certainly offer things like fillings, if necessary. However, you then think to yourself: Is it a better idea to bring the kiddos to a pediatric dentist? You’ve heard that this is the case but if you don’t know the reasons to do so, then you may not feel too compelled! If this is the case, then allow our Dallas, TX pediatric dental team to explain, clarify, and offer just a bit of motivation to select care geared specifically toward the needs of growing smiles!

Your little kids probably don’t think too much about the way their teeth look. They’re more focused on how quickly they can get through brushing and flossing, whether or not they get toothpaste in the flavor they really like, and so on. However, when those kiddos become teenagers, suddenly new concerns pop up. Today, our Dallas, TX team covers how to respond when your teen mentions a desire for a whiter smile. Is it out of the question? Is it safe to address on your own, you wonder? Don’t worry: We’ve got the answers you need during a dental checkup!
Do you find that you have a fairly easy time creating fun activities at home and seeking out cool events for your little ones? However, when it comes to your older teens, the days of sitting around the kitchen table, carving pumpkins and roasting the seeds just isn’t what it used to be? Outings that are mature enough yet not for adults only are few and far between? Spark some nostalgia and have a perfectly enjoyable Halloween-themed time with your teen at this upcoming Mockingbird Station Pumpkin Painting Party that’s just right.
Teaching children to brush and floss their teeth is an important first step in helping them learn to properly care for their smiles. However, it’s only a first step. For children to enjoy a lifetime of healthy, beautiful smiles, they also require routine professional care and education about their unique oral health concerns. At our Dallas, TX, children’s dental office, we can help your child improve their chances at enjoying a healthy smile for life by helping you better understand the details of children’s dental care.

More information about fall, you ask yourself? How could one season elicit so much information? Well, when you look at temps that are ready to dip after a long, hot summer in Dallas, TX, there’s a lot to consider. This is particularly true as our real fall often begins later than the very first day in terms of chilliness, which means once it really feels like autumn: The end of the year is even closer than you may realize! So, without further ado, let’s talk about some things that will definitely help keep you smiling, as you keep your kiddos’ oral health and general well being nice and safe!
In case you haven’t noticed, there’s quite a lot more to consider in terms of what the autumn season can mean for your child’s smile and oral health than you may have realized! The good news is that once you learn all of these particulars, they are details you will remember fall season after fall season (and that you can even apply to your own smile). One surprising issue you may not have considered just yet? Fall allergies! You expect them in the spring but in our Dallas, TX community, you may end up with them in the autumn, too. Let’s talk about some smile changes you may be noticing, what to do, and the fact that the pollen count may be (at least partly) to blame!
