Bickiepegs Healthcare launches New Finger Toothbrush & Gum Massager – ideal for looking after first teeth as babies try new tastes this Christmas.


A baby’s first Christmas is an exciting time as they are introduced to a whole range of new experiences, delights, presents and sounds. And often for a baby that is at weaning age, this will be the time that they try new and exciting tastes – perhaps their first experience of soft fruits, yoghurts and custard and maybe even the sensation of cold ice cream!  It’s lovely to watch them exploring the thrill of these new experiences – but equally important to ensure that an oral care regime is implemented from this point onwards. To this end, Bickiepegs Healthcare, a committed supporter of babies’ oral care since 1925, introduces a new Finger Toothbrush & Gum Massager which is designed to gently clean baby’s first teeth and massage their gums.


In support of the British Society of Paediatric Dentistry’s (BSPD) #DCby1 campaign which encourages babies to have a dental check before their first birthday, Bickiepegs is giving away a free Finger Toothbrush & Gum Massager to Health Visitors[1] and recommends its regular use as a great way to introduce your baby early to the sensations of having their teeth and gums cleaned. Morning and evening daily use will help maintain good oral hygiene. The Finger Toothbrush and Gum Massager is double-sided – with soft bristles on one side to ensure that any new teeth are kept clean, and then a dimpled reverse-side which offers gums a soothing massage, especially relevant when a baby is teething. It is important to clean teeth from the moment they erupt and keeping a baby’s gums clean will ensure that their mouths are in good condition – ready for the arrival of new teeth as they appear. The Finger Toothbrush and Gum Massager is suitable for babies of 6-18 months.


‘We like to think that if Father Christmas was a dentist, perhaps he’d be popping a Bickiepegs Finger Toothbrush & Gum Massager in each baby’s stocking this December!’
