Teach your kids good oral hygiene habits by getting them to brush their teeth early. When a baby’s first tooth appears, you can use a small, round toothbrush with soft bristles. Usually, this happens at the age of 3 when they can easily understand your requests.

Following are a few guidelines on how to choose the right toothbrush for your kid:
For toddlers, use the same toothbrush when their first tooth erupted. At this age, toddlers are more interested in participating in their routines. To make it fun, get them a cute toothbrush with a long handle and soft head. Let them figure their way out and show them the motions only when they ask.
Depending on how many baby tooth your kids has lost, you might have to upgrade the toothbrush. This toothbrush has soft, firm bristles to provide an all-rounder cleaning. It has a bigger head and a smaller handle for a better grip.
