When To Start Using Toothpaste

Which toothpaste is best for children?

The current advice is that adult toothpastes should be used for children over two years of age, and NO toothpaste before then. This is because of the fluoride content in the toothpastes – proprietary children’s toothpastes do not contain high enough levels of Fluoride. This presents a challenge in terms of taste, as most children complain of a burning sensation from the general adult toothpastes (the mint and eucalyptus flavours tend to burn their sensitive and tender gums and mucosa).
