What lovelier realization might there be in the midst of winter than the fact that spring is coming? Flowers will bloom, the birds will sing, and we will be able to go outside coat-free on a much more consistent basis here in Grand Prairie, TX! With that said, we have to ask: Is your smile quite as ready as you are for the steadily approaching changing of the seasons? If you’re not sure and you haven’t ever really connected springtime with your smile care, we’re happy to offer you some new insight!
Certain topics that come up in regard to your smile can immediately cause confusion. What you want in many instances is simply to be able to determine that something is okay for you or not okay. However, when the category is gum chewing, there are too many subtle nuances involved to classify it as a strictly black-and-white issue. The good news? When you learn just a little bit about how to chew gum in a way that is beneficial, you’ll carry that education with you for life and will know how to proceed, while keeping your oral health safe. It takes just a quick jolt of new knowledge from our Grand Prairie, TX team!
There are some thing you know about dental floss without spending much time thinking about it: You know you need to floss every day as part of dental hygiene to complete effective preventive care. You know that you need to keep this up for life in order to maintain a smile that doesn’t end up with serious problems like inflamed gums, cavities, and more. However, our Grand Prairie, TX team wonders if there are some things you don’t know about that you shouldn’t do in terms of flossing. Let’s make sure you’re well informed, so you’re not missing a beat!
Is your teen thinking about applying for a job now that spring break is nearly here? Perhaps your teenager is waiting until summer but is feeling ready to secure some much-desired employment and income! Or, do you have a high school senior who is interested in entering the workforce or working during college? Whatever the case, you will be pleased to learn that your Grand Prairie, TX community teen can gain some very important knowledge during the upcoming Interview Skills For Teens event!
On Valentine’s Day, you want to be swept away by love and romance and simply enjoy yourself! However, for those patients of our Grand Prairie, TX team who take their oral health very seriously, this can become quite difficult! Every offer of dessert, wine, and more feels like being bombarded with temptation that could lead to smile health problems. What to do, you wonder? Give in and enjoy? Stay the course? Fortunately, we can help you find a happy medium, so you protect those oral tissues of yours without having to sacrifice a lovely holiday experience!
By now, if you aren’t saying it regularly, you have at least heard someone yell out, “YOLO!” What’s it mean, you ask? It stands for “you only live once.” While this may be taken many ways, the intention is to suggest that you should enjoy and embrace life, take risks, and make the most of your experience on this earth! So, our Grand Prairie, TX team asks: Are you relying on this way of thinking to make the absolute most of your experience with dental care? Or, do you find that you often head in the other direction and miss out on opportunities? Consider some moments when shouting out “YOLO!” may be to your advantage!
It’s nearly here! It’s Valentine’s Day and it’s full of love, creativity, sweet gifts, and probably more sugar than your teeth know what to do with (remember to rinse and brush on this holiday!). As for those sweet gifts, we ask: Have your kiddos been looking for a way to create a Valentine for a friend or secret crush or even a family member? Whether you’re short on supplies or space or your kids just love creative events, you will probably want to remember to put the upcoming Valentine’s Day Crafternoon in our Grand Prairie, TX community on your calendar! It’s sure to be fun (and it will allow you to get out of the annual joy of having your home doused with glitter!).
When you’re thinking about your dental care, it’s easy to have exceptional intentions and to feel convinced that you’re definitely going to follow through on them. However, it’s also very easy to let time pass and suddenly realized you haven’t actually scheduled a single thing. Why not take in some reminders from our Grand Prairie, TX team? We encourage you to set some due dates for yourself for the things your smile needs and for your personal goals, so you get the care your smile requires and you feel on top of the world as you run through your checklist!
We frequently hear from patients that they’re brushing every day like we recommend but their smiles still feel dirty after those sessions. What, they ask us, are they doing wrong? If you can relate, we encourage you to consider some additional factors that may come into play, as our Grand Prairie, TX team walks you through them. Though it is certainly always worth coming in for a checkup when things don’t seem quite right, some guidance in effective preventive care is usually a wonderful place to start.
