Curious about electric toothbrushes for your little ones? Here’s what you need to know!

At Fort Dental Kids Dentistry and Orthodontics, we often get questions from parents about whether electric toothbrushes are suitable for their children. Let’s tackle these common queries.

First things first, safety: With proper guidance and supervision, electric toothbrushes are safe for kids aged 3 and above. For those younger than 3, manual toothbrushes are the way to go.

Now, onto the big question: Should your kids use electric toothbrushes? Our advice is simple: if it helps them build and stick to a consistent brushing routine, then yes!

Here’s why:

When selecting a toothbrush for your child, involve them in the decision-making process. Let them choose the color or design they like, whether it’s an electric or manual brush. As long as it has soft bristles and is the right size for their little mouths, it’s a win! At Fort Dental Kids Dentistry and Orthodontics, we’re here to help you keep your child’s smile bright and healthy.
