Electric toothbrush for children

There are also special electric toothbrushes designed for children with cheerful colours and figures, some of which also play music while brushing. Most dentists recommend waiting to use an electric toothbrush until your child is at least three years old. Do not use an electric toothbrush on children under the age of three. Before then, you can use the options below.

Special children’s toothbrush

It is important to buy a children’s toothbrush of the right size. Adult toothbrushes often have a brush head that is too large, so it cannot reach all parts of the mouth. Moreover, a smaller-sized toothbrush for children is also easier to hold.

Finger toothbrushes

You can start brushing as soon as the first tooth comes through. This usually happens after 6 months. To brush the teeth, you can use a special finger toothbrush, which you use on your finger and with which you can easily clean the first teeth.

Toothpaste for brushing baby teeth

For children up to 5 years, use a special toothpaste for toddlers, after that it is recommended to use a toothpaste with fluoride. Special children’s toothpastes have a less pungent minty flavour or even a sweet flavour to make the toothpaste more palatable.
