Choosing the best toothpaste for children

Posted on 3/6/2023 by Southern Family Dental Care
Choosing the best toothpaste for childrenBrushing of the teeth is important to have good oral health. From the appearance of the first tooth, children must brush their teeth to prevent forming of cavities and dental caries. To achieve strong gums and teeth, teaching children to brush must be our main goal. Our dentists will assist you in choosing the best toothpaste for your child. Our dentist will also help in teaching of the young children on benefits of brushing and using fluoridated toothpaste.

Fluoride toothpaste

Fluoride is good for the teeth and does not cause any harm to children. When the child is less than three years use smear-size fluoride toothpaste. After three years you can use the pea-size toothpaste that has fluoride to brush the teeth of your child. Fluoride helps in the prevention of tooth decay and keeps the teeth stronger. Ensure that you purchase fluoride toothpaste for your child. Encourage the child to brush the teeth at least daily and mainly after meals to avoid cavities and bacteria accumulation.

Safety of fluoride

Fluoride is safe to e use by children since it prevents the tooth from decaying. The bacteria in the mouth combine with sugars and acid is formed which harms the enamel and causes erosion. Fluoride will rebuild the enamel which covers the dentin and prevents decay of teeth. Children should drink plenty of water that contains fluoride and use toothpaste that has fluoride.

The fluoridated water is not safe for mixing the formula of the baby, it can cause fluorosis. Our dentist will teach you how you will get the right toothpaste for your child. They will also educate you more on the uses of fluoride on toothpaste and the right amount for your child.
