What is Oral-B Vitality Kids - Buzz Lightyear?
Not only does this Oral-B Vitality Kids Electric Toothbrush remove more plaque than a regular manual toothbrush, but it features a cool Buzz Lightyear design and themed stickers to customise the handle. This toothbrush is suitable for children aged 3 and over, featuring a round brush head, two unique brushing modes to carefully clean your child’s teeth and extra-soft bristles that are gentle on their tender gums, all designed with their little mouths in mind.
How to use this product
Wet your child’s toothbrush and apply a pea-sized amount of toothpaste and brush twice a day for about 2 minutes. There’s no need to count, either - simply switch on the built-in-timer and you’re ready to start brushing. Or why not bring some fun into brushing by downloading the free Disney Magic Timer app? Simply download the app, scan and let the brushing begin.
What toothbrush should my child use?
The type of toothbrush your child should use depends on their age. When they’re 0 - 3 years old, you should use a washcloth or a finger-slip toothbrush with a rice-sized amount of toothpaste (it should be fluoride-free at this age).
Then, from the ages of 3 - 9, you should get a children’s toothbrush with soft bristles to be gentle on their gums - these toothbrushes tend to get bigger as your child ages, so pick one that’s suitable for their age group. When they’re 10 years old and over, they can use an adult toothbrush.
How long should children brush their teeth?
You should help your child to brush their teeth for 2 minutes at a time, twice a day, once in the morning and again before they go to bed. This will ensure that all of their teeth are brushed properly, and if you use a timer you can make brushing their teeth a game as you both count down to 2 minutes.
Why is cleaning your teeth so important?
When you clean your teeth, you remove harmful bacteria and food particles that build up on your teeth and gums throughout the day. When this isn’t cleaned away with a proper dental care routine, harmful plaque acids can damage your teeth and gums, causing tooth decay and gum disease.
