We can learn a lot from moms.
At Shoreline Dental, we recently learned something new from our Hygienist, Becca, and that is:
Your baby can practice brushing even before their teeth come in. How?
Her infant daughter, Dakota, is learning “how to brush her teeth” with a banana. No, not the kind you eat. Dakota is using the best baby toothbrush out there:

Becca shared that this baby toothbrush is super beneficial for infants and toddlers. There has been research on the effectiveness of brushing an infant’s gums and how that it not only prepares them for brushing later when they get their teeth, but also for preventing bacteria growth.
It’s dual purpose as a silicone teether can help with teething pains and irritations too.
Sounds like a mother’s and dentist’s dream, right?
Well, it gets even better…
