Choosing the right toothbrush for your child is quite simple.

  • Look for a small head and a large handle
  • Soft bristles that are gentle yet effective
  • Kids love attractive colors
  • Use toothpaste that is age appropriate


There are many different brushes available and it can get confusing


  • Dr Ferguson is particularly fond of the Swiss Toothbrushes that are imported into Australia.
  • They have just announced a super one specially for kids over 5.
  • The Curaprox CS Smart is smaller – yet bigger. CS Smart children’s toothbrush looks just like the CS 5460 ultra soft adult’s toothbrush, Dr Ferguson`s favourite.
  • The adult version has 5460  individual ultrafine Curen filaments – and the CS Smart has 7600 Curen filaments and these are even finer, with a diameter of only 0.08mm.
