Teeth brushing.....

I need to start spending more time brushing my daughters teeth - she has really good teeth, but has some missing, and the dentist says i need to try and keep her milk teeth for as long as possible!

Can anyone recommend a good timer?

Also - do you know what age a little one can start using an electric toothbrush?

Thanks you!!!

mine used an electric brush from around the age of 2 - we used to use a timer on our mobile phone but now the toothbrush lets you know when 2 minutes is up.

I didn't realise I could get an electric toothbrush with a timer!!! Sounds perfect!

That's one birthday present sorted then!!!!

I got 2 egg timers ( from Lakeland Limited) for upstairs and downstairs.

Electric toothbrushes are good as they are more effecient but DS dropped his in a sink of water and it was never the same again.
