When you walk into the toothbrush aisle of a drugstore, it can be overwhelming to choose one for your child. Will Dora The Explorer or Spiderman do a good job on their teeth? Or maybe Elmo is the way to go?
The characters are there to make it more fun for kids, but what really matters is the characteristics of the toothbrush itself. You’ll want to choose a child-sized toothbrush with a rounded head and soft bristles.
So when do you start brushing your child’s teeth? As soon as they have teeth to brush!
