If you are a parent who isn’t sure which toothbrush to purchase for your child, we are here to help you! Oral hygiene is extremely important, but it’s only effective if you have the proper tools to perform all of the techniques. So, when you’re at the store trying to decide on a toothbrush, please choose one that:

Is easy to use
Brushing can be difficult for children, which is why it is important that you buy a toothbrush that is easy for your child to use. It’s best to pick one that has soft bristles, a non-slip grip, and a smaller toothbrush head. These characteristics make it possible to fit the brush inside the mouth without any trouble.

Has been approved by the ADA
A toothbrush that has been approved by the American Dental Association is the best product you can purchase. This seal of approval means that the brush has passed tests that evaluate safety and effectiveness. Choosing this type of brush will help you know that your child’s smile is taken care of as they clean their teeth each day.

Is one that your child loves
Whether the brush has your child’s favorite superhero or cartoon character on it, it’s best to choose a brush that your child loves. If your child loves the brush, they will enjoy cleaning their smile more and more each day. So, try taking your child to the store with you and have them pick out a brush that they would enjoy using.

You will purchase the best toothbrush on the market if you find one that has all three of these characteristics. If you have any questions or if you need to talk to Dr. Alberto A.
