When Should Your Child Get an Electric Toothbrush?
Posted on 3/20/2020 by Fariba Mutschler
Getting your child interested and excited about brushing their teeth can seem like a daunting task at times, but we are here to help you! If your child is over the age of three, an electric toothbrush can help on so many levels. Electric Avenue When you are considering getting your child an electric toothbrush, there are a few things you need to take into consideration. First of all, your child should be at least three years of age before they begin using an electric toothbrush. Under the age of three, manual brushing should be practiced. Electric toothbrushes not only help your child brush more effectively, they can help keep your child interested in brushing. Additionally, many electric toothbrushes come with built in timers to ensure that your child is brushing for an appropriate length of time. The American Dental Association recommends that each tooth brushing session should last approximately two minutes. Imagine, as a child, if you had a toothbrush that sang songs or had little flashing lights that was yours to hold for an entire two minutes! Getting your child excited about brushing twice a day is a great way to establish healthy brushing habits that last a lifetime. Avoid fighting and conflict with your child when it is toothbrush time. If your child has been fussing about brushing or feels that oral health is a chore, switching to an electric toothbrush can help eliminate tantrums and resistance from your child. Finally, in addition to brushing twice daily and flossing at least once per day, regular visits to our office can help your child establish good oral habits and maintain a healthy smile for years to come. Give our office a call today if you have any questions about what electric toothbrush might be right for your child and schedule their next cleaning. We look forward to hearing from you!...
