Kid's Electric Toothbrush vs. Manual: Which One is Better?

I’m here to help you figure out what kind of toothbrush to buy your little one to help keep their teeth healthy and sparkly. You might be wondering if a kid’s electric toothbrush is better than a manual toothbrush. Well, we’re going to find out!

When it comes to brushing teeth, the most important thing to think about is keeping your kid’s teeth as clean as possible. While manual toothbrushes are a great option, an electric toothbrush (or power toothbrush) like the one included in Tooth Fairy in a Box from Oral-B, can be a helpful tool to keep their little teeth shining bright!

Kid’s electric toothbrushes are safe and effective.

Reaching all those hard-to-get places inside the mouth can be hard (and tiring) for little hands. With oscillating bristles, timers, different cleaning modes and more, a power toothbrush is an easy and effective way to help them brush everywhere that needs brushing. And that makes me and my Tooth Fairy friends very, very happy!

Electric toothbrushes can be kid-friendly.

Not all electric toothbrushes are created equal. Whether they are just learning to brush or have been at it for a few years, make sure to get an electric toothbrush designed for your child’s age range. Most should have age recommendations listed on the packaging.

Kids electric toothbrushes are fun.

Sometimes, getting little ones to brush their teeth can be a chore. In addition to fun games or brushing charts, an electric toothbrush can add a level of fun to your child’s brushing routine. There are lots of kid-friendly toothbrush options to help teach little ones that good oral hygiene isn’t boring. Some power brushes come in fun colors or even play a favorite tune!

Find the toothbrush that’s right for your kid.

Since both electric and manual toothbrushes are perfectly good options for your child, it’s really up to you to pick. Sometimes, letting your child be a part of the selection process can get them excited about the shiny teeth in their future.
