3 Tips For Your Child's Best Toothbrush
Have you ever wondered if you're giving your child the best toothbrush? Here are 3 tips to help you find the best brush and help your children enjoy brushing more!
1. Brush Head - the smaller the size of the brush head and the softer the bristles, the better. Always look for "extra soft" or "soft" when choosing a new toothbrush.

2. Handle - Your child should use a toothbrush that fits comfortably in their hand. Things to look for are length and thumb rests or non-slip grip to help with control.  

3. Design - After you have narrowed down the options, let your child choose a design they like. Picking a design they like can help get them excited when it comes time to brush their teeth. 
 
When Your Child Should See An Orthodontist & Why

Phase 1 or "early treatment," is usually recommended for situations where severe crowding, overbites, underbites, or abnormalities in tooth development occur.  The best time to diagnose a situation and start correcting these issues is between 7 and 10 years old. 

Consisting of appliances like expanders and partial or limited braces, early treatment serves to fix issues like structural corrections that are most easily done at an early age as children are still growing.

Proactively treating these issues while your child is young prevents them from experiencing it as an adult, when treatment can be more lengthly and uncomfortable.

Happy Father's Day
