When you’re eating a snack or sitting down to a meal together and you notice your child is experiencing chewing pain, your antenna immediately goes up. Is this normal? Is it a sign of an oral health problem? How to know when a bit of discomfort in a developing grin is to be expected, when it really shouldn’t be happening, and what to do about it all? Our Dallas, TX team reminds you, of course, that we are always here to help you when you need our support! As for the brief rundown that can answer your most pressing questions, let’s get started.
You may find yourself wondering about wiggle room. As in, whether you have any when it comes to the dental care we suggest for your child. Today, our Dallas, TX helps you to better understand why just about every treatment or visit you need is one that we suggest you follow through on quickly! Remember: The details often apply not only to your children’s oral health but also to your own! When you have the education you need to fully understand recommended care, it makes feeling motivated, extremely confident, and proud of your efforts so much easier!
Are you someone who waits in anticipation as April winds down because you love, love, love celebrating May 4th? If you instantly know what we’re talking about because you’re quite the Star Wars fan, then you will appreciate the upcoming May The Fourth Be With You event at the Perot! (Hint: For those who don’t quite get it yet, “May the 4th” sounds like “May the Force (be with you)” from the movie series Star Wars…and the rest is pop culture history!). Hoping to attend this Dallas, TX event? Get tickets!
You may expect colds to crop up during the winter months but during spring? What gives, you ask? The truth is, viruses are prevalent in the spring, too, and they can affect you and your kiddos any time of the year. Add in the fact that pollen counts soar in the Dallas, TX area and springtime allergies are quite common. So, no matter how you slice it, congestion and feeling under the weather is a possibility. Our main concern in reflection of these details? We know you might need some help keeping your kids’ oral health safe when they feel a bit miserable. Consider some tips!
You might find yourself feeling the pangs of embarrassment as you scoop your kiddo up for a visit to our practice. We know, of course, that from your perspective, it’s you as the parent as you guide your child through smile care and everything else! You’re not experiencing parenting as a collective group with all other parents out there. However, from our perspective at our Dallas, TX practice, we are seeing parenting as a bigger picture. We see parents and their children every single day! As a result, we like to remind you individually that though you may really not want to have to come in for a visit, it’s definitely not “just you.”
While we tend to remind you that you should limit the candy you eat on a daily basis (and we will never stop reminding you to rinse then brush after you do so), there’s an upcoming event that is so magical and so very sweet, our Dallas, TX team just has to bring it to your attention: It’s Candytopia and it will be in our community for just a limited time. No, we don’t usually suggest overloading yourself and your kiddos with candy … but you might want to check this out!
While it may not feel like it in the moment, our Dallas, TX team reminds you that every dental-related rain cloud has a silver lining! Though it’s quite easy to get caught up in the excitement and upset that may accompany moments in which your child needs urgent care or when you feel disappointed in particular smile health news, we remind you: We offer pediatric dental care for just about anything that comes up! So, when you need us, remember that we are here (and things are going to be just fine!). Just give us a call when you need a visit.
You brush and floss every day! Your kids do, too. One of the results of this necessary part of your daily life for a healthy smile is the fact that you have to shop for the dental hygiene products everyone needs in order to complete a job well done, each and every time you follow through with your preventive efforts at home! So, though you know the products you need (toothbrush, toothpaste, dental floss), you may hit a snag when it comes to the finer details. Our Dallas, TX team knows this and has an easy way to help you remember the specifics!
If you haven’t heard of Vickery Trading Company, our Dallas, TX practice would love to take just a moment to provide you with a quick introduction! It’s a non-profit that’s near and dear to our hearts, it’s local to our community, and learning more about socially aware businesses is always a good thing!
While you may not love learning that your child needs a dental filling, you understand the reasoning, you know that it will solve a problem, you are aware the results will look just lovely, and you have probably had one before (so you are not afraid of them). However, when your child learns it’s time for a first filling, well, things don’t always go so smoothly. If you have a child who feels worried about an upcoming visit for this simple restoration, our Dallas, TX team has some helpful advice!
