The Baby Banana Toddler Training Toothbrush is designed to be flexible and bendable so that kids would not be able to injure their mouths on traditional hard plastic toothbrushes.
The medical grade silicone makes this brush durable and safe, while the small bristles massage teeth and gums.
The Baby Banana Toddler Training Toothbrush was designed by Oral Hygienist, Heather Phillips RDH. Some years ago, her toddler nephew slipped whilst brushing his teeth with a common hard plastic toothbrush (some of these now have softer colourful tips, but are still rigid and potentially dangerous).
His toothbrush pierced his palate and lodged in one of the sinus cavities, only a couple of millimetres from the brain. As if the seriousness of the accident was not enough, the family were rather shocked to find out from the Emergency Room staff that this type of occurrence was all too common!
This near-tragedy prompted Heather to come up with a brush that would be totally safe for even infants to use. It would also need to be effective as a plaque-remover.
After a period of intense development, the Baby Banana Brush was born. Its slight C-shape and chunky feel makes it both easier to grasp and brush with, and its flexibility makes it very safe. It also doubles as a wonderful teether!
