Delivering Better Oral Health With Jack N’ Jill Kids

 

 

 

As a part time Dental Nurse working in a busy NHS practice it is so important to start teaching Oral Health from the very start, this includes new mum to try and reinstall this from a very young age.

Our practice had a open day for parents to bring along their babies and Children to have fun and also learn along the way with our Halloween festive event,which had lots of games prizes and taste testing healthy sugar free foods plus lots of other fun activities. 

 

Children’s teeth

From brushing their first tooth to their first trip to the dentist, here’s how to take care of your children’s teeth.

A regular teeth-cleaning routine is essential for good dental health. Follow these tips and you can help keep your kids’ teeth decay-free.

Toothbrushing tips 

It’s important to use a fluoride toothpaste, as this helps prevent and control tooth decay.

Children aged up to 3 years

  • Start brushing your baby’s teeth as soon as the first milk tooth breaks through (usually at around 6 months, but it can be earlier or later).
  • Parents or carers should brush or supervise toothbrushing.
  • Brush teeth twice daily for about 2 minutes with fluoride toothpaste.
  • Brush last thing at night before bed and on 1 other occasion.
  • Use children’s fluoride toothpaste containing no less than 1,000ppm of fluoride (check label) or family toothpaste containing between 1,350ppm and 1,500ppm fluoride.
  • Use only a smear of toothpaste.
  • Make sure children don’t eat or lick toothpaste from the tube.

Children aged 3 to 6 years

  • Brush at least twice daily for about 2 minutes with fluoride toothpaste.
  • Brush last thing at night before bed and at least on 1 other occasion.
  • Brushing should be supervised by a parent or carer.
  • Use children’s fluoride toothpaste containing no less than 1,000ppm of fluoride (check label) or family toothpaste containing between 1,350ppm and 1,500ppm fluoride.
  • Use only a pea-sized amount of toothpaste.
  • Spit out after brushing and don’t rinse – if you rinse, the fluoride won’t work as well.

Children aged 7 and over

  • Brush at least twice daily for about 2 minutes with fluoride toothpaste.
  • Brush last thing at night before bed and at least on 1 other occasion.
  • Use fluoride toothpaste containing between 1,350ppm and 1,500ppm of fluoride (check label).
  • Spit out after brushing and don’t rinse – if you rinse, the fluoride won’t work as well.

 

Children aged 7 and over should be able to brush their own teeth, but it’s still a good idea to watch them to make sure they brush properly and for about 2 minutes.

Our blog wanted to tell you about a fantastic Dental brand  Jack n’ Jill 

 

Jack N’ Jill is a natural toothpaste for babies, toddlers and children that is safe to swallow. It was first made in Melbourne, Australia in 1949 and it has been our family business for more than 20 years. It continues to be made in Australia and we are excited that Jack N’ Jill is now available in more than 30 countries.

A few years ago we had our first child and immediately joined many parents the world over who are concerned about current environmental issues and the direct effects they have on our children. We started to question everything he came into contact with, not wanting to expose him to unnecessary additives and chemicals. We felt frustrated about the lack of choice in early childhood oral hygiene and personal care. With a background in pharmacy, we set out to formulate the absolute safest products for our kids and yours. In the process, we also made safe, fun and eco friendly!

Our Range:

Jack N’ Jill Toothpaste is 100% safe for young children especially because they have a tendency to swallow it, rather than spit it out! All Jack N’ Jill branding is designed to be appealing to children and is cute enough that parents won’t mind it sitting on their bathroom vanity. Alongside the toothpaste we have designed and manufactured the first children’s Bio Toothbrushes with handles that are made of NON GMO Corn Starch, and are therefore biodegradable and recyclable. Did we mention ‘cute’?

We have a unique range of “first tooth” options from our highly effective, natural, safe and Australian made Teething Gel, to our Tooth Wipes and our Silicone Range of Brushes.

We also have our friend Buzzy! Our Electric Musical Toothbrush (aka Buzzy Brush) is revolutionary in encouraging three year olds and beyond to brush happily while dancing to the tune!…

Our Bathtime range is formulated with the highest quality natural ingredients, designed to be effective and some variants have a unique aromatherapy profile. Using ingredients such as Native White Cypress and Native Orange Pearl, makes the Jack N’ Jill Bathtime range truly unique.

At Jack N’ Jill we believe that businesses have an obligation to the environment. That’s why we have formulated all natural, hypoallergenic products with organic ingredients and, where possible, designed our packaging to be minimal, recyclable and BPA Free. 

As you may of read Jack N’ Jill don’t have fluoride in their toothpastes and that is fine and up to you but our dental practice does require and recommend to use fluoride as areas differ and for ours we need this as our practice area has a high decay rate.

That is not a problem at all as this brand of toothpaste still fits in as we use it for Children who do not like the taste of normal toothpaste you can simply add a little bit of Jack N’ Jill’s flavoured range which is perfect if your child does not like strong minty taste you can add it as a flavour to your exacting brand you use and with the added bonus you know you are not giving them any more fluoride so you know it is safe.
