Whether you believe it or not, your child’s little chompers are vulnerable to tooth decay and gum disease, which is why our Arel C Ondoy DMD dental team encourages you to properly brush your child’s smile each day. However, the proper brushing technique is only possible if you have the right toothbrush. So, to help you find the best child’s toothbrush in Oak Forest, Illinois, we encourage you 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 that has 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

If the brush has been approved by the American Dental Association, that means it has passed tests that have evaluated for safety and effectiveness. This is the best way to know that the brush is the best product for your child’s smile.

Is one that your child loves

Sometimes children don’t care to brush their teeth. However, that might change if they have a toothbrush they love. So, why don’t you get them a brush that has their favorite cartoon character or superhero on it? These features might excite your child and make brushing fun for them again.
