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.

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!

Fortunately, implementing some changes right now will help your whole family avoid this unpleasant side effect of sudden weather shifts, so you can smile comfy smiles with optimal lip health!
Yes, we know that before you had kids, you could just roll with Halloween night, as you took everything moment by moment! Head to a party? Leave for another? Stay out until 1am? No problem. However, you probably know very well by now that as a parent, a footloose and fancy free approach to things (particularly those that can interfere with usual sleep schedules and that include tons of sugar) aren’t always going to give you the relaxing results and happy faces you’re looking to achieve. So, our Dallas, TX team offers you some suggestions for planning your upcoming holiday that will ensure the easy oral health protection that’s been weighing on your mind!
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.

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!

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.
