Choose the right toothbrush for your kid Newington, CT

Choosing the right toothbrush for your child is no easier than starting a new cereal for your family. With very little or no information on the packaging and the innumerable choices, buying this seemingly simple product gets complicated. Brush up on the do’s when picking the right toothbrush for your kid.

  •         Size: One size of toothbrush may not fit all. A child’s mouth is smaller than an adult’s; therefore it makes sense to buy a small toothbrush. Make sure the head of the toothbrush reaches the back of the mouth. For toddlers use a very small brush head with soft bristles.
  •         Bristles: When in doubt always prefer softer bristles as they are gentle on the soft mouth and gums of kids. Medium and hard-bristle toothbrushes can damage tooth enamel and gums.
  •         Grip: Since kids lack the ability to skillfully brush their teeth, it is always advisable to use a toothbrush with a larger grip as they are easy to grab and maneuver for those tiny hands.
  •         Powered or manual type: If used properly, both types of brushes can do a good job. However, for kids with braces, powered toothbrushes are a better option as dental brackets can obstruct manual brushes.

Lastly, as the American Dental Association rightly puts it, buy a toothbrush that your kid will actually use.
