Q: Is the Giant Tooth Brushing Anatomy Model appropriate for use by children?
A: The Giant Tooth Brushing Anatomy Model is durable, and is a great teaching tool for children. While we do not usually promote that this model be used by the children, there is no major reason why children would not be able to safely use the model. The one concern with that situation is that the bendable metal pieces that hold the top and bottom jaw together can slip out of the holes by which they are attached. They are easily reconnected, but the issue could be confusing to a child. These pieces disconnecting could also cause the top jaw to shift position - nothing drastic, but enough to possibly give a gentle pinch to an unsuspecting hand or finger. Otherwise, this model could be quite appropriate for use by children, as it is large and has only three pieces (top jaw, bottom jaw and toothbrush). As with all of our products, we definitely recommend that children are supervised while they are interacting with the model.
