From fruity to minty and Dora to Spongebob, there are plenty of options for kid-friendly toothpaste on the market. Here are some key things to look for when picking out a toothpaste for your child:
-Make sure the toothpaste is ADA approved. Look for the ADA seal on the tube.
-Flouride should be one of the main ingredients in toothpaste.
-Find a toothpaste that is “safe” if swallowed.
-Look for a toothpaste that has a kid-friendly character.
When young children first learn how to brush using toothpaste, they may swallow instead of spitting into the sink. Finding the right toothpaste for your child is important just in case they end up swallowing most of the paste. Your child should enjoy the taste of toothpaste so that they will enjoy brushing after meals. Flavors such as bubble gum, fruit punch and watermelon are all options for kids’ toothpaste. Let your child pick out their own toothpaste so they feel like they are using the product they chose. What toothpaste does your little one like?
