I : I have a whole other take on how to clean a child's teeth based on my personal experience, and i strongly recommend it. By the way doctor fowler's answer is a good one. I like the oral b braun small brush head. Here is what really works. Load your little power brush hear with a toothpaste with a flavor kids like, then insert your thumb into your child's cheek, your index finger on the outside of the lower jaw, and your middle finger under the jaw. You now have your child's head secure and no matter how they scream they can not chomp down and bite your fingers, and the more they protest the easier it is to get in and brush the teeth. With your other hand use the oral b braun to brush their teeth. Do this for two weeks every night and by that time they will just acquiesce and you job will be effortless after that. Three children later, trust me it works. Start flossing as soon as their teeth are touching dr neil mcleod dds dentistry that lasts - quality that counts. ...Read more
