There are many dental products and tools available to help keep your child’s mouth healthy.  Here are a few of our favorite dental products at Sunny Smiles Dentistry:

Toothbrush

Brushing daily is one of the most important ways in which you can help your child keep their mouth healthy.  You should purchase a brush with soft bristles, and teach your child to brush firmly but without excessive pressure.  Electric toothbrushes are also an excellent choice.  We recommend that you choose an ADA-approved brush to ensure a quality product.

Dental Floss

You should floss daily.  You can choose from traditional floss or floss holders, and may want to consider using a floss threader if your child is wearing braces.  Our favorite types of dental floss include:

Toothpaste

There are many toothpaste options.  The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends using a very small amount of fluoridated toothpaste up until age 3.  After that age, use a pea-sized amount of fluoridated toothpaste.  We recommend that you choose an ADA-approved brand of toothpaste.  Our favorite brands of toothpaste include:

Rinses

Fluoride rinses help prevent cavities before they can start, and in some cases can prevent existing cavities from getting bigger.  Make sure that your child can fully spit out the rinse and toothpaste.  Our recommended brands of rinses are:

Disclosing Tablets

Disclosing tablets can be used to help guide your child in properly brushing his or her teeth.  We recommend the following brands for your use:

All of our favorite dental products can be purchased at a local drugstore or big box store (such as Target, Costco, or Walmart), or online through websites like Amazon.com.
