There’s no need to use an electric toothbrush if you don’t want to. Brushing your toddler’s teeth well is more important than the type of toothbrush you use. A manual or electric toothbrush is only as good as its operator!

However, most toddlers find electric toothbrushes fun. If it makes life easier, you could use one. Electric toothbrushes are effective at removing plaque, too.

Your toddler may want to have his teeth cleaned with an electric toothbrush if he sees you using one. He’ll probably ask you if he can have a go.

Look for a quality brand with a timer and a small rotating, oscillating head. A rechargeable brush is much better than a battery-operated one. Battery-operated toothbrushes slow down as the battery runs down, and won’t clean as well.

It’s worth investing in these features if you decide to get an electric brush. As the heads are easy to change, it is possible to have one handle, with a separate head for each family member. This makes it more cost-effective.

If your toddler won’t let you use an electric brush on his teeth, but you’d like to, carry on with his manual toothbrush for a while. Then you can introduce the electric toothbrush again when he feels ready.

Manufacturers advise that children should be three years old before they start using electric toothbrushes by themselves. But, as with anything else your toddler puts in his mouth, supervise him closely if you let him have a go with an electric toothbrush.
