Having good oral habits is essential not only for adults but also for children’s as it is an important part of a child’s overall well-being. Establish healthy routines from an early age will not only pave the way for proper oral development, but also helps your children teeth’s grow into strong and healthy. On this World Oral Health Day, Chicco, a leading babycare brand is spreading awareness among parents to maintain the oral health of kids with its extensive oral care range.
Inculcating the habit of brushing in kids, Chicco’s oral care range has-appropriate toothpaste flavours and toothbrush range to make the oral care regime enjoyable for babies & kids. Proper oral hygiene goes far beyond fresh breath; it is the best resolution to prevent gum disease later in life. The enamel in babies and kids is in the development stage and is thinner than those of adults. Thus, while selecting an oral care regime for babies, parents must consider using products that gently cleanse without damaging the enamel and delicate gums of the little ones.
Chicco toothpaste is 75% lower abrasive, which reduces the risk of enamel damage while providing the proper cleaning. It contains Xylitol that does not allow the cavity-causing bacteria to grow, thereby reducing the chances of cavities. Since babies are not a pro at spitting out the paste and also swallow sometimes by mistake, the toothpaste range for up to 6 years is fluoride-free, so it is safe for babies and kids. Chicco’s toothbrush range has the innovative extra soft Tapered Bristle which provides gentle and effective cleaning without damaging the baby’s teeth enamel and gums. The bristles of the toothbrush are BPA free and therefore safe for children. The toothbrush’s head & neck are ergonomically designed and hence suitable for baby’s mouth and also offers the anti-slip grip for firm holding to have control while brushing.
On the occasion of World Oral Health Day, Mr. Rajesh Vohra, CEO, Chicco India says “Children’s teeth have very different needs than adults’ do. While your mouth is fully developed, your child’s teeth, gums and jaw are still growing and changing every day. So, it’s very important to develop oral health routines at-home for kids soon as possible which includes brushing twice a day, and choosing right oral care range which is fluoride-free and IDA approved.”
