Teeth Team at 543
You can also bring your child to the Teeth Team at 543!
What do I do if the Teeth Team’s not in town?
If Teeth Team hasn’t yet come to your child’s school, or if your child isn’t yet school-age, don’t worry, you can bring your child to the Teeth Team at 543. No age is too young – the earlier the better!
The Brush Stop is a special area in our practice where our very own Teeth Team, Oral Health Educators Julie, Laura and Sara, give advice to your children on all aspects of oral hygiene.
They can show your children tooth brushing and cleaning techniques, such as flossing or using interspace brushes.
If your children are visiting the Brush Stop, they may also have fluoride varnish applied to the biting surfaces of the back teeth. This is a pale clear/yellow gel that sets quickly when applied to children’s teeth using a soft brush. Most children find it has a pleasant taste and a fruity smell.
The reason for doing this is that it provides extra protection against tooth decay when used together with regular brushing with fluoride toothpaste.
