Use Electric Toothbrush
Not a good idea: Your child really doesn't have the eye-hand coordination to brush properly until about age 5-6. Until then you should be doing it for her. Please take her asap to a pediatric dental specialist for age-appropriate oral hygiene instructions, diet/fluoride/sugar advice, jaw and tooth development evaluation, a thorough examination, and for your child to bond w the specialist. Don't wait until age 2. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I use an electric toothbrush. I get cold sores frequently. How can I sanitize my toothbrush? At $22 per head i cannot afford to replace each time.
Peridex (chlorhexidine gluconate): Ask your dentist to write a rxn for peridex (chlorhexidine gluconate). It is an antimicrobial mouth rinse. You can rinse your brush head in hot water , then let it soak in this for 15 - 30 minutes, then rinse again and allow to dry. Also, you might invest in 2 brush heads and alternate so they dry completely. Good luck. The cold sores are viral.If herpes, ask your dentist for rxn for acyclivir. Often helps. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
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 moreSee 2 more doctor answers

I personally would prefer the oscillation type. ...Read more
Thanks for asking!: I prefer the electric vibrating tooth brush over the waterpic. Whatever does the best job in your hands of mechanically removing the plaque around your teeth.

TEnter an answer sum: The toothbrush only gets the outside surfaces. You need to clean between your teeth where most tooth decay and gum disease start a water-pik alone wont help as much. Use dental floss or a small brush that fits between your teeth commonly known as an interproximal brush. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
