Use photo interrupter.
Indeed, because a magnetic sensor will not work with plastic gear teeth. Of course, another option is to add an extra toothed wheel someplace along the gear train so that a magnetic sensor could be used. Or add an optical encoder someplace. But since we have no information about the application it is not possible to provide a really good suggestion.
