dentist with child- top dental products If you’ve ever wondered what a dentist uses to keep her own kids’ teeth and gums healthy, wonder no more! We recently chatted with long-time BMC partner Dr. Quyen Ying of Liberty Park Children’s Dentistry to get the low-down on the TOP dental care products for kids of all ages. Got a teen with braces? A gum-chewer? A nursing infant? We’ve got you covered! Read on to find out Dr. Ying’s favorite items on the market for keeping your family’s smiles healthy and happy. 

For Infants

  • Brushing Buddy from SnoofyBee: How cute are these? Keeping a baby’s mouth open can be challenging, so these offer a safe and fun way to help kids stay open to brush and can also serve as a silicone teething toy!

  • Colgate or Oral-B manual toothbrush (ages 0-3yo): The small brush head with soft bristles is gentle and perfectly sized for little ones.
  • Triple-sided toothbrush by Fridababy: This one is a great way to get all three exposed surfaces of the teeth at once when there is limited mouth opening and access.
  • Spiffie’s xylitol tooth wipes: Use them to wipe teeth and gums on infants, especially after nursing.

For Kids

  • Sonicare for Kids electric toothbrush: It cleans effectively, comes with a customizable handle, and connects to an interactive brushing app that motivates kids to brush. It even shows them when to move from one quadrant of the mouth to another.
  • Crest/Oral-B Spiderman/Princess electric toothbrush: This one comes with fun interchangeable stickers on the handle and connects with the Disney Magic Timer App from Oral-B to make brushing more engaging and enjoyable.
  • Gumchucks: These are a good way to make flossing fun and easier.

For Kids with Special Needs

For Kids in Braces

    Waterpik: A really handy tool for flossing and cleaning teeth and gums.

  • GUM interdental proxabrushes: So helpful for cleaning those hard-to-reach places and good to pack when you’re on-the-go.
  • Crest/Oral-B iO electric toothbrush: It’s equipped with a pressure sensor to minimize aggressive brushing on the gums and rotation motion to clean as many surfaces of the tooth as possible. You can also choose from a variety of brush heads, including one to get in between brackets for those in braces. 

For Teens

  • Philips Sonicare Diamond Clean electric toothbrush: There are several modes to choose from, and it uses sonic action to break up plaque and stains. Bonus–it’s quiet!
  • Crest/Oral-B iO electric toothbrush: This brush comes with multiple heads and modes, is equipped with a pressure sensor to prevent excessive wear on the enamel, and it uses rotation motion to clean as many surfaces of the tooth as possible.
  • Cocofloss: Teens love these fun flavors and the cute packaging! Best of all, they are textured to really clean well and remove plaque between the teeth. Plus, they are sustainably made using recycled plastics.
