Finger toothbrush and baby toothbrush
Finger toothbrushes are especially popular with babies. As the name suggests, this variant of the toothbrush is not the real toothbrush as we know it. They are usually made of silicone. You can slide the finger toothbrush on your finger like a finger cot. The index finger or middle finger is most suitable here. For example, if your baby is still very young, you can also use your little finger.
It has no bristles. The knobs on the surface ensure gentle oral and dental care. When your child starts to grow teeth, he or she will feel very comfortable. Finger cots can promote blood flow to the gums and relieve itching caused by tooth growth. At the same time, you will let your child get used to foreign objects in their mouths. The thin material gives you a good idea of whether your child’s gums have changed. If your baby is older, you can use a finger toothbrush and some baby toothpaste to clean the deciduous teeth.
The term baby toothbrush is commonly used as a general term for all baby dental care products. Baby toothbrushes are different from adult toothbrushes in many ways.
Her mane is many times shorter than her big sister. They are also softer. Therefore, the sensitive oral mucosa will not be harmed. The brush head itself is also smaller, so it is suitable for small mouths. The small, soft bristles are suitable for the first few deciduous teeth. The handle of the baby toothbrush is large and non-slip. This will allow you to hold your child safely while brushing his teeth.
Later, your child can help hold the toothbrush and participate in cleaning exercises. Then the handle is also suitable for your child to try cleaning for the first time. Some baby toothbrushes have small pieces instead of bristles like the NUK set. They are especially useful if your baby has no teeth or only a few teeth. The knob can also help teething. Because they massage the gums, itching can be relieved. This will make your baby feel good. Your child may even associate toothbrushes with pain relief and health. This increases the chance of getting your child to brush their teeth with less effort when you are young.
