Victoriapark Dental

Beginning with good habits

Learning good dental hygiene at a young age can help children build a strong foundation for a lifetime of good dental health. The Hygiene Education Program for Children at Victoriapark Dental aims to start children off with proper techniques, encouragement and awareness to keep their teeth always looking their best.

Our careful, positive instruction and know-how can help to prepare children to become little experts at their own personal dental hygiene.

We provide techniques and tips specific to each child's own health and requirements to empower them to take care of their dental health. We help them understand that what they eat and drink, and attentive brushing and flossing at home will affect their dental health.

We review each child's personal, medical and dental information, including existing health conditions, habits, medications, diet restrictions, allergies, medical history and personal ability and involvement in their own dental care at home. The hygienist may offer a plaque tablet to your child, so they can chew it and see first-hand where plaque likes to hide in their mouths. It is an effective exercise for children to understand plaque and how well it can stick, even after brushing. Proper brushing and flossing techniques are key to establish early, to best prevent cavities and avert future dental issues.

Also discussed are any concerns about gum and teeth development, gingivitis, sealants, night time clenching or grinding, gum recession and more.
