He was considering buying a Braun electric toothbrush for his son but was unsure whether a special childrens electric toothbrush was available or not.

Electric toothbrushes have larger handles, which are easier to grip and their powered brushes do the cleaning for you, especially in the tricky areas that require fine motor skills to get at, such as the backs of molars and behind your upper and lower front teeth.
Many people feel electric toothbrushes are more environmentally friendly.
