Did you know it’s best to clean your child’s smile with a child toothbrush? Well, it’s true! A child’s toothbrush can help you properly and effectively clean your child’s chompers. However, that is only the case if you choose the right toothbrush. So, to help you pick the right brush to clean your child’s smile, our Summit Village Family Dental dental team encourages you to pick a brush that:

Is easy to use

The best toothbrushes that are easier to use are the products that have a small toothbrush head and a non-slip grip. These characteristics give you the control you need when brushing and they also allow the brush to fit perfectly in the mouth. Generally, children’s toothbrushes have these benefits and they are the perfect size for a child’s mouth. However, no matter which brush you choose, make sure it has soft bristles.

Has been approved by the ADA

The American Dental Association tests products regularly to evaluate safety and effectiveness. So, if you choose a brush that has the ADA’s seal of approval, you have picked a product that will safely and effectively clean your child’s smile each day.

Is one your child loves

Sometimes children don’t like to have their teeth brushed. However, that might change if they have a toothbrush they love. So, why don’t you get them a brush that has their favorite cartoon character or superhero on it? These features might excite your child and make brushing fun for them again.
