Putting Your Kid's Toothbrush to Use
Kids' toothbrushes are essential to good oral health care, but only buying the right toothbrush doesn't guarantee they will have clean, healthy teeth. Toothbrushes should be used twice a day, so use these tips to teach your child how to brush their teeth effectively. When the bristles fray and no longer stand up straight or after three months — whichever comes first — it's time to buy a new toothbrush.
Buying the right toothbrush for your kids isn't only about making sure they have clean teeth and gums; it's about setting up good oral health habits that will last a lifetime. Follow the age range guidelines on the packaging and involve your children in choosing and personalizing their new toothbrush. They will have a toothbrush that fits their mouth well, is comfortable to hold, and that they love to use.
