How to Choose the Best Toothpaste for Toddlers and Kids

It is essential to keep and teach good oral habits when the kids are younger. That is why it is essential to start brushing teeth from the time their first tooth appear. While parents can brush their kids’ teeth, it is also essential to teach young kids how to brush teeth and add brushing teeth to their daily routine. However, selecting the best toothpaste for young kids must be done with care considering many reasons.

In this post I want to share some of the tips and things I learnt about keeping good oral hygiene for toddlers as it can be helpful for others too.

Other than the most popular oral hygiene tips such as brush teeth twice a day, here are some concerns about selecting toothpaste for toddlers.

Usually toddlers are with more chances of swallowing toothpaste. At their first stage of toddler life, they are not skill enough to spit toothpaste. That is why you need to consider the ingredients of the toothpaste which you use for toddlers.

Fluoride is helpful for prevent cavities and decays. That is why it is advisable to use toothpaste and oral wash which contains fluoride. However, it is not a good thing to swallow fluoride. If your toddler doesn’t really know how to spit, then it is better to give him toothpaste which doesn’t contain fluoride. That is why no fluoride toothpaste is good for toddlers. However, most toothpaste includes fluoride. Usually dentists recommend using pea size amount of toothpaste when you brush your toddler’s teeth and this will reduce the harm of swallowing more portion of toothpaste with fluoride and other minerals.

However, isn’t it a good idea to brush teeth of toddlers with non-fluoride toothpaste? When I reached a doctor with our toddler, his advice was to use non fluoride toothpaste as he still doesn’t spit and instead he likes swallowing toothpaste.

After some search, finally I found toothpaste for toddlers and kids which don’t contain fluoride. However it contains Xylitol which is also helpful for reducing the risk of tooth decay and cavity.

I wish this toothpaste was around when my daughters were babies. Instead of spitting the toothpaste out, they would swallow it because they liked the taste. Plus, their toothpaste back then was filled with sugar, not good. #ProductReviewParty
