Choosing A Toothbrush For Your Child

pediatric dental Charlotte

At The Steele Creek Dentist in Charlotte, we are often asked how to choose the most basic tool of oral hygiene, the toothbrush. Picking a toothbrush can be as hard as choosing a paint color, and there seems to be just as many choices.

If you have visited the dental section of your grocery store lately, you know what we mean. There are brushes with bristles of varying lengths, brushes that massage your gums, and brushes that change color when they are used up.

Choosing a Toothbrush for a Child

When picking a toothbrush for a child, make sure the brush feels comfortable in his or her hand. If the size and angle feel awkward, the child will be less likely to use it long enough to clean all areas of the mouth. Children do not necessarily need a child-sized toothbrush. Some kids can manage an adult size brush better than a short, narrow child-size brush. If you are unsure, ask us.

At The Steele Creek Dentist in Charlotte, our services include children’s dentistry. Getting your youngster in for a checkup is a little easier with our extended evening and weekend hours. Call for an appointment today!
