You love your children. That means you want to give them the best. You want to give them the best education. You want them to have the best friends. You want them to have access to the best dental care. That’s why we’ve created this guide – to help you choose the best dental products for your children’s oral hygiene routine.
First, you’ll want to choose a toothbrush that fits your child’s mouth easily. That’s why there are toothbrushes specifically designed for babies, toddlers and young children. As your child grows, choose a toothbrush that fits their size, not their age. Also, obtain a toothbrush with soft, rounded bristles. Children’s teeth are delicate and therefore especially vulnerable to the enamel erosion that comes from brushing too hard. You’ll want to pick a color or theme that your child will love. If you get your child involved in choosing a toothbrush, they’ll likely be more excited to use it.
Like toothbrushes, there are toothpastes that are especially designed for children. These toothpastes should not contain fluoride until your child is old enough to spit out the toothpaste on their own. They also do not need to contain tooth-whitening properties. Kid toothpaste often has character themes or special flavors. Let your child be involved in picking the character or flavor, or choose something you know they will enjoy.
