Your Little One is All Set For Her New Toothbrush and Toothpaste

Team AckoFeb 8, 2024

Your little one's toothy smile now needs some extra care as it's time to graduate to using toothbrushes for them . With plenty of toothbrushes and toothpastes in the market, it is confusing to choose the best one.



    Choosing the right toothbrush

    Always use a toothbrush that is specifically for kids. This is because the heads of these brushes are small, oval and the bristles are very soft while the handle is non-slippery. Cross bristles are good as they can reach well between the teeth. It is also good to change the brush every 3 months.

    Choosing the right toothpaste

    Your kid’s toothpaste should have good fluoride content. Make sure you purchase child-friendly toothpaste as some kids tend to swallow them. Some will also find their toothpaste to be unpleasant and semi-painful.

    Ensure you pay a lot of attention to the toothpaste. Never use any medicated toothpaste that has a specific purpose without the advice of the dentist, (eg: to treat sensitivity or bleeding gums). These might harm your child’s teeth.

    So keep these elements in mind and your little one will thoroughly enjoy her teeth-brushing time!
