Toothpaste Rules

Parents ask us, “What type of toothpaste should my child use?” Many companies market specialized products geared towards children, save your money! Your child can use any toothpaste with flouride that has a Seal of Acceptance from the American Dental Association. Brushing teeth twice a day(after breakfast and before bed) provides greater benefits than brushing once. Parents should assist dispensing toothpaste until your child is seven or eight to ensure that they do not consume too much. Children two and under require only a smear of toothpaste. Children over the age of two need to use a pea size amount.
