Making sure your children’s teeth are healthy is always important, but especially when it comes to a family friendly foodie event like the Texas Mac and Cheese Festival! So, before you chow down, make sure little chompers are ready for chewing by scheduling a checkup and cleaning at Pediatric Dental Care at Casa Linda.
Getting your child accustomed to visiting the dentist regularly was probably quite the challenge. Young children are often nervous or anxious about their visits until they get used to the environment. This is essential in making routine dental care an important part of their dental health. If a dental emergency occurs, that familiarity will also help us address the emergency and restore and preserve your child’s smile faster and more successfully. Today, we examine a few things to remember if your child needs emergency dental care, including what specific types of situations are most frequently considered emergencies. (more…)
After teaching your child how to brush and floss their teeth every day, it can seem like the fate of their smiles is in their own hands now. That’s partly true, but several parts of your child’s oral health care are still solely your responsibility as a parent. For example, they still rely on you to take them to their routine dental checkups and cleanings, to provide foods and beverages that are healthier for their teeth, and to guide them in keeping their smiles healthy by preventing things like tooth decay.

This weekend, you can spend your time having some exciting family fun at the North Texas Comic Book Show! Then, during the week, be sure to encourage your children to be super teeth brushers and flossers to keep cavities at bay, and don’t forget to schedule their six month appointments with your Dallas, TX, dentist at Pediatric Dental Care at Casa Linda.
Some things about children’s dentistry are exactly the same as adult dental health care. For example, both young and older smiles need routine preventive care to stay clean and healthy. Both can also be subject to cavities if that care isn’t consistent. However, even with consistent care, children sometimes need a helping hand in preventing things like cavity development. With treatments like fluoride, we can often provide that help without the need for additional dental treatment. (more…)
A lot of people assume that children are more likely to get cavities in their teeth than adults are. In some ways, that’s true, but not for any reason involving children’s teeth, specifically. No matter how old the tooth is, a cavity develops the same way – when oral bacteria infect a tooth’s structure. Either the enamel has grown weak from attacks by acid, which oral bacteria produce, or the enamel is compromised from excessive tooth wear or damage. The thing is, protecting teeth from cavities takes some effort on your child’s part. That includes consistently good hygiene, regular preventive care, and if it’s necessary, additional preventive measures to better protect your child’s teeth. (more…)
Whether you are a proud dog owner, a dog lover, or someone whose children have been begging them for a dog for a while now, you won’t be able to resist smiling at the sight of happy pups this weekend at one of the many dog-centered events being offered in our community of Dallas, TX. Then, keep your kids smiling by keeping their teeth healthy at their checkups and cleanings at Pediatric Dental Care at Casa Linda.
There’s a lot that you want your child to know about caring for their teeth, especially how to avoid any mistakes you may have made throughout the years (such as neglecting good hygiene). However, it isn’t just what you tell your child that matters. For instance, no matter how much you tell them to brush and floss your teeth, they’re much less likely to if they never see you do it. In many other ways, you can be teaching your child more about dental hygiene by what you do than you what you say, for better or worse. (more…)
If possible, you would save your child from ever feeling any kind of discomfort. When it comes to toothaches, you can at least do more to help your child avoid the pain than you can for most other things. While you can’t guarantee that your child will never experience a toothache or any other dental health issue, you can help them understand the importance of keeping up with good hygiene and visiting the dentist regularly. This will help them successfully prevent many of the most common things that can cause a toothache, and in many cases, the need for extensive treatment to alleviate one. (more…)
