Used correctly both work well. For some children the electric tooth brush may motivate them to brush more often. The whizzing sounds of an electric toothbrush and the tingle of the tufts swirling across teeth and gums often captivates people that own electric toothbrushes. They are advantageous because they can cover more area faster. Electric toothbrushes are recommended for people who have limited manual dexterity.
· Dental Visits
The ADA recommends regular dental check-ups, including a visit to the dentist within six months of the eruption of the first tooth, and no later than the child’s first birthday.
Preventive care such as cleanings and fluoride treatment provide your child with “smile” insurance.
Routine dental exams uncover problems that can be treated in the early stages, when damage is minimal and restorations may be small.
When necessary, X-rays are taken to see how the teeth are developing and to spot hidden decay.
