If you want your child to have a top-notch oral health and smile, then you need to brush their teeth twice a day. Brushing is a very important part of a proper oral hygiene routine. However, it’s not very effective if you have the wrong type of toothbrush. So, our dentist, Dr. Troy Hardy, would like to help you choose the right toothbrush for your child. When you’re at the store browsing the oral hygiene aisle, it’s best to look for a toothbrush that has:
-American Dental Association approval: This ADA seal is very important because it proves that the toothbrush is safe and effective in an oral hygiene routine. If it has the logo printed on the packaging, then you can ensure it’s a good product for cleaning your child’s smile.
-A non-slip grip: A non-slip grip can help you and your child clean the teeth. It can even help your child develop the dexterity they need to properly scrub the smile.
-A motivating design: Sometimes kids dislike cleaning their teeth. Having a fun toothbrush that has their favorite characters on it or even having a kid’s electric toothbrush can make oral hygiene more fun and exciting.
