How to pick the right toothbrush for your child at different ages.
When a child is learning how to brush their teeth for the first time, they must start brushing with a soft toothbrush. As a child's teeth grow in, they will grow in at an angle. Therefore, a child's teeth need to be cleaned along the grain of the tooth.
Once a child has regularly brushed with a soft toothbrush for 3-4 months, they then can transition to a soft-bristled toothbrush. The transition should be gradual, so the child's teeth won't be traumatized.
Once a child has transitioned from a soft-bristled toothbrush to a regular toothbrush, they can begin brushing with a children's toothpaste. Children's toothpastes often include fluoride to prevent tooth decay.
How to clean and manage your child's toothbrush.
Toothbrushes are usually replaced every three months. The recommendations for replacing your child's toothbrush are that the base of the bristles should be white and firm. The toothbrush should be in good condition, other than being worn.
Your toothbrush should be stored upright when it's not being used. This will prevent bacteria from growing in the bristles. Hydrogen peroxide is recommended as an effective way of cleaning your toothbrush.
You should clean your toothbrush after you have finished brushing with it. Use a small amount of hydrogen peroxide to moisten the bristles. Then use a clean toothbrush to brush the toothbrush. This will remove bacteria from the bristles.
