VITIS, whose aim is to offer personalised solutions for the proper oral hygiene of everyone’s mouth, is now concentrating on the mouths of the littlest of the household, offering VITIS® baby, VITIS® kids and VITIS® junior to satisfy children’s oral needs, while helping to instil good daily hygiene habits.
The care of baby teeth and later of permanent teeth is paramount for the proper oral development of our youth. “If we focus on the oral requirements of children during their growth, it will be easier to maintain good health and hygiene and therefore avoid cavities and other diseases later in life”, explains Dr Xavier Calvo, Periodontist, DDS and Medical Advisor at DENTAID.
From 0 to 2 years: VITIS® baby and tooth eruption
The tooth eruption process usually occurs between 6 months and 2 years of age, but even before this phase, it is important to start a daily oral hygiene routine, by cleaning the gums with a moist piece of gauze or a silicone thimble, after each feeding.
With the eruption of the first teeth, inflammation of the gums, discomfort and crying begins. That’s why the VITIS® baby gel ointment for gums is the perfect ally for this difficult stage, thanks to its soothing action. It does not contain aromas, sugars, added dairy, gluten, fluoride or colourants. Low abrasivity: gentle on tooth enamel.
The VITIS® baby toothbrush is perfect for starting a daily cleaning routine from the eruption of your baby’s first teeth. It is designed to fit a child’s mouth and for easy handling by an adult, and is gentle on a baby’s delicate gums and teeth, thanks to its ultra-soft, high quality Tynex® filaments.
From 2 to 6 years: VITIS® kids and the care of baby teeth
The main objectives in this stage include establishing a daily habit of cleaning baby teeth, removing dental biofilm (bacterial plaque), and getting little ones to acquire the responsibility of taking care of their own mouths, although this still has to be supervised by an adult.
The VITIS® kids toothbrush is specially designed to be easily handled by a child, thanks to its ergonomic handle that fits their hand and its very small head which is suitable for the size of their mouth and an indicator of the amount of gel that the child should use. Soft, high quality Tynex® filaments effectively clean while gentle on teeth and gums.
VITIS® kids cherry-flavoured dental gel is formulated specifically to prevent tooth decay in children as of 2 years, thanks to its age-specific fluoride concentration of 1,000 ppm, complying with SEOP and EAPD recommendations.
From 6 to 12 years: VITIS® junior and the emergence of permanent teeth
The VITIS® junior toothbrush is designed to make brushing easier for children starting at age 6, thanks to its ergonomic handle and head size adapted to children at this stage. The soft Tynex® filaments leave their mouths clean and are adapted to their needs. And the protective cap helps to keep the brush in the best conditions.
VITIS® junior tutti-frutti flavoured dental gel has been specially formulated to prevent the onset of caries, with a fluoride concentration adapted to this stage of growth (1,450 ppm of fluoride). In addition, its panthenol content helps care for and protect their gums.
At this stage, a child usually controls the swallowing reflex and this will allow VITIS® junior mouthwash to be used as part of their daily oral hygiene routine, to complement the care of their mouth with an anticaries action and a gum care actio
