"I have searched the world over looking for just the right toothbrush to make brushing easier and more effective for kids with a cleft lip and palate. After the lip is repaired many children have a very thick and tight top lip. This is especially true for kids with a bilateral cleft lip. It makes it very difficult to fit a regular toothbrush under the lip to brush the top teeth. I have tried every toothbrush I could find and tested them on my own son, Kyle. (Thanks Kyle!) We finally found one that works fabulous and it makes brushing a much more enjoyable time for both Kyle and myself. We highly recommend the Blue Rx Ultra Suave Elite Toothbrush. The bristles are possibly the softest on the market and they are shorter than regular brushes. Since they are softer and shorter it easily fits between the top lip and the teeth. Although probably not necessary, you could also cut down the bristles so that they are even shorter for extremely tight lips. Since they are so soft this will not cause the bristles to be much firmer and it will still be softer than regular brushes. This toothbrush has greatly improved the cleanliness of my own son's teeth and reduced the struggle over properly brushing.
This is also excellent to use following bone graft surgery when your doctor says it is okay to brush."
The Blue Rx Ultra Suave Elite Toothbrush is perfect for patients who have highly sensitive oral tissues due to periodontal disease, oral surgery, post-operative care, oncology, cardiology, chemotherapy, radiation, implantation. The Ultra Suave Elite Toothbrush has a wide comfort handle and compact head for more control. This toothbrush has a stylish pearlized color. A matching cover is included to protect delicate, soft .003 nylon bristles. The toothbrushes softer nylon minimizes trauma, stimulates tissue and provides cleaning in areas that would normally be passed over as too delicate to clean.

PEDIATRIC MEDICAL SOLUTIONS
surgery. Snuggle Wraps pediatric arm immobilizers are the cool and comfortable solutions for when your child is required to wear arm restraints. Wearing arm restraints isn't one of the joys of life, but it is our goal to help make that experience easier and more comfortable. Snuggle Wraps are not thick, hot and bulky like other arm restraints or arm immobilizers.

Arm immobilizers are often referred to as other names such as arm restraints, arm splints, elbow immobilizers, arm braces, etc. They are commonly used following cleft lip and palate surgery.
