Can Children Use An Electric Toothbrush?

Good habits for oral health should begin early. Dentists suggest that as soon as the first tooth appears, you should begin brushing your child's teeth using a toothbrush specially designed for their age group and moving up to larger brushes as they develop.

Whether electronic toothbrushes are better for their children than manual ones is one of the most popular questions parents ask. However, all sorts of toothbrushes will perform just as well to keep the teeth of your child free of plaque and decay as long as they are used correctly. But with attractive features, electric toothbrushes like the Sonisk Pulse may inspire more reluctant young brushers and help keep their teeth safe.

Do electric toothbrushes clean kids’ teeth better?

There is no scientific proof that the removal of plaque or stuck food from children's teeth by electric brushes is actually better. However, this relies on the individual child in several instances.

Some kids (and even adults) don't clean their teeth efficiently with a manual toothbrush, even with advice from their dentist. By conducting the brushing action for you, an electric toothbrush will make this simpler and is typically recommended by dentists for children whose teeth display signs of inadequate brushing.

Make sure it has an angled head to clean those hard-to-reach areas if your child prefers a manual toothbrush. Don't forget to change your toothbrush every three months or after an injury or swap the head of your electric toothbrush.

Which is easier to use?

One of the benefits of electric toothbrushes is that, particularly for children, they can make brushing simpler and more convenient. Their rotation and stroke motion ensures that all the time, with the right speed and strength, the toothbrush cleans. So, as long as every tooth is brushed, parents don't have to worry about their child not brushing properly.

With ergonomically crafted handles that are easy for children to grasp and comfortable to use, both styles of toothbrushes are available. Toothbrushes have larger handles for young children that are easier for small hands to manipulate.

Which do kids prefer?

Your child is more likely to use their toothbrush correctly if your child is able to use their toothbrush. You should get an idea of which one your child is more comfortable with by trying out both electric and manual brushes.

Electric toothbrushes are enticing to some children, while others can find them unpleasant or even terrifying, but this typically changes as they get used to it. Some may prefer the motion of electric toothbrushes that clean their teeth one by one, while others may prefer the conventional brushing's back and forth, up and down action.

Which toothbrush should you choose?

To let them pick it for themselves is the best way to find a toothbrush that your child would be able to use. Take them to the nearest dental clinic, chemist, or supermarket, so they can browse the full range of choices and select the one they'll be happiest to use every day.

At Sonisk, our Pulse electric toothbrush is compact and lightweight. With antimicrobial protection and sonic technology to preserve tooth surface and prevent decay. Our toothbrushes also come in eight different colours - making it fun for your kids too!

Manual toothbrushes may have fewer bells and whistles, but both styles of toothbrushes are available to cater to children of all ages in a wide variety of colourful and appealing designs. This involves brushes sculpted to look like their favourite characters with handles.

They're more likely to establish healthy oral hygiene habits that might stick with them for life when your child discovers their favourite toothbrush. Every six months, keeping up with your dental appointments will give your child's dentist the opportunity to check their teeth and give you some input on their brushing technique.
