Dental care for KIDS

Leila Haywood

Steps to take to have sparkly, lovely healthy teeth!

1. Brush your teeth for 2 minutes in the morning after you have breakfast. Make sure they don’t feel furry. The toothbrush needs to touch each tooth to make sure there is no junk left on them. Brush the outside, top and inside of each tooth thoroughly using small circles.  Keep your tooth brush clean, put in a glass so that it doesn’t touch anyone else’s toothbrush. You’ll need a new toothbrush each new season.

2. Think about whether the foods you are eating are sticky and sugary.  Are they going to get jammed into the tops of your teeth? Try not to eat sugary foods and drinks too often - once or twice a day is ok, but more than this means your teeth are fighting to stay healthy. Your teeth are even stronger than your bones, but if you eat enough junk, the bacteria can eat your teeth away. Even cereals, tomato sauce, iced teas and flavoured yoghurt have lots of sugar in them. Think about whether you can make a choice like fresh fruit, greek yoghurt and water as a great tooth friendly snack maybe and so healthy for you too.

3. Brush your teeth at bed time and don’t eat or drink anything except for water after this.

4. Floss between all of your teeth so there is no food stuck in between them, to keep your teeth sparkly and clean and stop holes starting in between the teeth.

5. Drink lots of water instead of sugary drinks or juice.

WINTER SOLSTICE

Leila Haywood

Spring Hill has been a lovely change in venue for us, with the building completion finally coming to a close on our new facility. The practice in East Brisbane was knocked down in place of progress for the Lytton Road, Wynnum Road widening project by the Brisbane City Council. We have found Spring Hill to have a nice community feel with the primary school close by, cool cafes, and the mix of character houses and fig tree lined streets, within our elevated purpose built fit out, makes for a lovely vista. Being able to see the sunset from the rooms is lovely, and a welcome view given that we are no longer looking over the river. It has been 3 months in our new location, and we have had a wonderful response with patients loving the modern feel of the fit out with all glass rooms allowing the light to fall beautifully from room to room. We have decorated with flowers in every room, and have loved being able to put a touch on each room that makes for a lovely ambience.

Leila Haywood is away in July this year. Dr Amy Daley will be available to see patients on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 7.30am, and Christine our hygienist will be providing dental hygiene services during this time. We have an offer for the July on Mondays and Wednesdays for $490 for Zoom teeth whitening technology, for the winter white teeth. Please call Sonia on 07 3391 2504 to assess suitability. 

Melbourne Cup 🏇😷

We're well and truly racing in to November, and Melbourne Cup was celebrated by our team at the beautiful Eleven Rooftop Bar, where our team won on the race and in fashion. Holly, my wonderful nurse, won best dressed for her tropical inspired outfit, by Camilla. On the work front, Amy, Christine and I have been busy checking in on smiles, and my support team have been fabulous, and are so appreciated.

Well being

Leila Haywood

A great program being run by the Victorian government involves the release of a Well being Plan 2015 - 2019, with key priorities to improve the health and well being of the general public, and especially those who are disadvantaged. 

Oral health has been identified as a key marker of general health, and with greater levels of oral disease being inclined to be an indicator of disadvantage.

Poor diet and consumption of sugar laden drinks are contributors to poor oral health.  An improvement in oral health is enabled with access to fluoride in water and toothpaste, good dental hygiene and regular access to preventive dental care. 

The key areas of focus which are excellent guidelines are:

  • Healthier eating and being more active
  • Tobacco free living
  • Reducing alcohol and drug use, if applicable
  • Improving mental health
  • Prevention of violence and injury within the general public
wellbeing

By investing in the community and caring for individuals, it is hoped that a better sense of wellbeing and support leads to better health outcomes, happier and cared for individuals and an improvement in dental health, as well as over health and quality of life. Hopefully this preventive and advisory service will be expanded to all of Australia, for the benefit of all citizens. 

dental care and wellbeing

Caring for ourselves comes under many chapters;

Being active with at least 30 minutes of moderate activity each day. Attending to diet; eating 2 pieces of fruit each day, 5 serves of vegetables, whole grain and unprocessed/unpackaged foods, and avoiding canned foods. Minimising salt and sugar intake, and in particular decreasing or ceasing consumption of sugar laden drinks, including soft drinks, Coca Cola, energy drinks, and additions of sugar to any foods or drinks. Dental hygiene and care with twice daily brushing and daily flossing, in particular prior to bed times. The Oral B Black, Genius or Smart Series are highly recommended, with use for 2 minutes, twice a day. Difficulty flossing can be overcome with a Reach Access Flosser. Stress reduction and minimisation techniques are also critical to wellbeing, as well as a good work- life - care balance. 

Happy Monday
