Which are the Best Toothbrushes for Kids?

Parenting
With new oral hygiene products available in recent years, you might be asking which are the best toothbrushes for kids? Dr. Emily Hahn, Pediatric Dentist at St. Louis Children’s Hospital, compares the effectiveness of traditional toothbrushes, electric toothbrushes and mouthpiece toothbrushes. With both traditional and electric toothbrushes, it is important to teach children to scrub the areas where the teeth and gums meet for about 5 seconds at a time as this is where most plaque build-up occurs. The goal is to get the right size toothbrush for your child and to make sure they know how to properly use it to hit all the right spots.
