Trying to brush a toddler’s teeth at bedtime can be a miserable and futile task, but help is at hand.
A British company has designed a gum protector and strawberry toothpaste that it says cleans without tears or tantrums.
The Wiggle, which costs £39.99, is designed for children aged two and over. Toothpaste is poured into two silicone molds that fit snugly over the upper and lower teeth and then vibrate for 60 seconds.

“Not only do parents find it difficult to get their children to brush their teeth, they are not brushing properly, said Toby Brittan, of Whites Beaconsfield, which makes the Wiggle.
“After nearly a year of research and development, we are absolutely thrilled to have created a product that takes the stress out of brushing and makes it fun for kids.
“The fun alternative to a standard toothbrush cleans every tooth in a 360-degree angle.”
“We think we’ve made brushing your teeth a fun and exciting activity, and one that kids can look forward to every morning and evening,” said his brother Olly.

Dr Ali Hussain, a dentist, said it was a “game changer,” adding: “As a parent, I know the stress of trying to encourage your little one to brush their teeth and this is the solution.
“Weigel not only makes brushing teeth a fun activity, but it also cleans teeth more efficiently,” he said.
All this assumes that parents don’t have to play rugby with their kids on the floor to get gums in their mouths in the first place.
