At The Bartlett Dental Station, Dr. Prosniewski and our team are pleased to offer pediatric dentistry for our patient’s and their loved ones. So, today our The Bartlett Dental Station dental team would like to give you tips on how to choose the best toothbrush for your child.

Have your child’s teeth started to grow into place? If so, it’s time to start cleaning them so you can help your child prevent tooth decay and gum disease. In order to properly clean your child’s smile, you need the proper tools. When looking for a child’s toothbrush in Bartlett, Illinois, it’s best to choose one that:

Is easy to use

It’s best to find a toothbrush that has a non-slip grip and a head that fits perfectly in your child’s mouth. We also recommend picking a brush with soft bristles because the soft bristles effectively clean the teeth all while being soft and gentle with the gums.

Has been approved by the ADA

A toothbrush that has been approved by the American Dental Association is the best product you can purchase. This seal of approval means that the brush has passed tests that evaluate safety and effectiveness. Choosing this type of brush will help you know that your child’s smile is taken care of as you clean their teeth each day.

Is one your child loves

If your child has a toothbrush they love, they will enjoy brushing even more. Whether the brush is electric or has your child’s favorite cartoon character or superhero on it, it’s important to purchase one your child will love. So, take your child to the store and have them pick out the brush they will enjoy using.

Oral hygiene is extremely important, even for children, which is why it is vital that you give your child the tools they need to succeed.
