What is a Wisdom Step-By-Step Toothbrush?
The Wisdom Step-By-Step Toothbrush is the perfect toothbrush for children aged between 6 – 8. It’s soft enough to keep their teeth and gums safe as they learn to brush, and specially shaped to give them control over where they brush.

When should my children start to brush their teeth?
You should start to brush your child’s teeth as soon as their first baby tooth comes through, and help them to learn to brush their own teeth as they grow older. This will help them to learn good dental care habits as they grow, so they can take pride in brushing their teeth by themselves.
How will this Wisdom Step-By-Step Toothbrush keep my child’s teeth clean?
The Wisdom Step-By-Step Toothbrush has soft brushes which are gentle on growing teeth while still effectively removing plaque and food particles. The gum bumpers help to protect gums as your child learns to brush by themselves, helping them to grow in confidence while keeping delicate gums safe. The Wisdom Step-By-Step Toothbrush also includes a tongue cleaner, so they can learn to clean their tongue as well as their teeth, keeping their breath fresh.
How often should children brush their teeth?
You should help your child to use their Wisdom Step-By-Step Toothbrush twice a day, brushing for at least 2 minutes every time. This will help you to be sure that your child has cleaned their teeth properly, brushing every part of their mouth.
When will my child need a new toothbrush?
Dentists and hygienists say that you should replace your toothbrush every 3 months, and the same goes for your child. When your child brushes their teeth, the wear and tear on the bristles makes them less effective, making it more difficult for your child to brush properly. This is why it’s important to update your child’s toothbrush regularly, and to also make sure that they’re using the size of toothbrush that’s right for them.
