What is better for a child: electric or manual toothbrush?

Sep 23, 2011
Both electric and manual toothbrush can be effective for cleaning child's teeth, if they are convenient to use. While electric toothbrushes are more effective at removing plaque and have many additional features, some children, especially young children, may be reluctant to use electric toothbrush. In this case, using manual toothbrush or the one that plays music may be more appealing.

More important is to clean teeth regularly twice a day with the toothbrush that will be comfortable to use.
