Picking the Right Toothbrush for Your Children - Ballwin Dental Care

Would you be surprised to hear that there are a number of things you can do to keep your kid’s pearly whites healthy? For instance, you’ve probably heard that you keep your baby active and help them follow a healthy diet. Still, did you know that it’s also important for you to help your little one’s avoid problems like a cavity? However, did you know that you’ll also need to help your kids choose the best toothbrush and toothpaste?

Unfortunately, children are about as vulnerable to tooth decay as adults are and more and more children are getting cavities. As you may have guessed, brushing and flossing are very important for protecting your oral health. Still, brushing will be more effective if you purchase a brush that has a small head. If the head of your little one’s brush is too large, you might struggle to maneuver the brush in their mouth. It’s also important to use a brush with soft, rounded bristles. If you brush your little one’s teeth too hard, you could damage their pearly whites and their gums.

When you buy your little one’s toothpaste, it’s important to choose one without fluoride in it. Fluoride shouldn’t be swallowed, so children shouldn’t have toothpaste with fluoride in it until they’re able to spit it out by themselves. It’s also important to choose a toothpaste your child will enjoy using.
