We all know how important oral hygiene is for our little ones, and the earlier we start taking care of our babies’ gums and teeth, the better the chance we have of building healthy dental habits when they’re bigger.

But FOREO from Sweden wants to make it easy on us parents with their ISSA mikro sonic baby toothbrush, specifically designed for the smallest of brushers, from infancy to four years of age.
