Is it okay if children use an electric toothbrush? Our five year old really seems to prefer to have that used on him, but i'm worried that it might be too hard on his baby teeth. Do I have anything to worry about? .

Great!: Just make sure it has a small head to fit better into child's mouth. Should brush 2 full minutes by the clock with a pea-sized portion of tooth paste. Then you should check him and brush any areas he may have missed. He also needs to be flossed, a toothbrush can't get between teeth. Floss him daily. Toothbrush will not harm baby teeth, not brushing and flossing will. Go for it! ...Read more

Baking : Baking soda is found in many toothpastes. It is a base, which neutralizes the acids that the bacteria clinging to your teeth produce. It is also slightly abrasive which helps you remove some of the superficial stains. Moderate use with a soft bristle brush should not be detrimental to your teeth or surrounding tissue. Brushing excessively hard, and overusing such an abrasive, can, over time cause a wearing away of the enamel on your teeth. Also, brushing hard can cause your gums to shrink back, exposing the roots of the teeth. The root surface will wear away much faster than the enamel, which can lead to hot and cold sensitivity. ...Read more
