    Hi, My 5 year old is asking for an electric toothbrush but my dentist said to wait till 7 or so as he needs to learn how to manuever the angling of the toothbrush before using the electric one as the electric one can damage the gums if used improperly. Dentist did say that kids' gums do grow back but adult's gums once receded or damaged do not grow back (from over-brushing etc) and can lead to gum disease. So a bad habit from a young age may continue forever...

    Really? I never thought of brushing a little baby with an Electric Toothbrush. Wouldn't it hurt their gums?
