Tot Toothbrushes Promote Good Brushing Habits in Our Youth | Dr. Mark Sayed

Brushing Your Children’s Teeth Many  parents  don’t  know  that  children’s  teeth  must  be  cleaned  as  soon  as  they  start  coming  in.  What  they  also  may  not  know  is  that  traditional  toothbrushes  may  not  be  safe  for  toddlers  to  use  themselves  because  they  can  be  over inserted  in  the  mouth  or  even  swallowed. Orange County  orthodontist Mark Sayed knows the importance of promoting healthy dental habits from an early age. Today,  safer  toddler  toothbrushes  are  available  that  prevent  the  buildup  of  plaque  and  bacteria.  Using  toddler  toothbrushes  can  help  children  establish  good  oral  health  habits  at  an  early  age. A  dental  hygienist  designed  and  introduced  the  first  toddler  toothbrush  in  1993.  It  resembles  an  oblong  shaped  teething  toy,  with  one  wide  end  for  easy  gripping  and  a  narrow  end  with  a  small  head  of  bristles.  The  shape  prevents  it  from  being  over inserted  in  the  mouth  or  swallowed,  and  some  models  have  bumps  around  the  gripping  end  on  which  infants  can  teeth. Even  before  children’s  primary  teeth  come  in,  parents  should  start  promoting  oral  health  in  infants  by  wiping  the  baby’s  mouth  with  a  washcloth  or  gauze  pad  to  prevent  the  build-up  of  plaque  and  bacteria. It’s  never  too  early  for  parents  to  encourage  their  youngsters  to  start  using  toddler  toothbrushes.  “As  soon  as  they’re  reaching  and  grabbing  for  things,  they’re  ready  for  it,”  says  Academy  of  General  Dentistry  spokesperson  Bob  Roesch,  DDS,  MAGD.  “It  familiarizes  children  with  having  a  toothbrush  in  their  mouths,  and  they  like  to  mimic  their  parents.” …
