Here at Lakeside Dental Spa in Hervey Bay, our dentists want every child to be able to enjoy the benefits of healthy teeth and gums, hopefully for life. Oral hygiene education is enormously important and we take the time to work with new parents and children to ensure oral hygiene is properly maintained.
How We Can Help
Our friendly dental team can work with parents from that first dental visit onwards. Our dental therapist is fantastic with young children and is specifically trained to help kids up to the age of 17. We can also show you the best way to clean a baby’s first teeth.
Flossing Young Children’s Teeth
You will need to begin flossing your child’s teeth as soon as they come into contact with each other and you may need to continue flossing them until they are age ten, or when they have developed sufficient dexterity to manipulate the dental floss. Flossing s kid’s teeth isn’t always easy so please ask us if you would like a little help or perhaps a quick demonstration on how to accomplish this essential task with minimal stress to you both. We can also offer advice on the best type of floss to use as this can make a huge difference.
Education on Brushing and Flossing
As your child gets older and wants to brush their own teeth, we can show them the best way to do so and will make the experience as fun as possible to keep them interested in their dental health. We can also explain why good dental care is important and why they should visit a dentist right throughout their lifetime and how to floss when these teeth come into contact with each other.
Are your kids eligible to receive up to $1000 of free dental treatment under the Child Dental Benefit Schedule (CDBS)? We bulk bill for CDBS so there are no out of pocket expenses.
