Brushing our teeth is the simplest and best way to take good care of our overall dental health.
Since children are more prone to cavities and are less likely to keep up this oral care habit themselves, it’s important for parents to choose the best methods for making brushing a part of their children’s daily routine.
What’s also important is that they choose the right tools.
In this article, we’ve put together a shortlist of the best toothpaste options available for children. Read on to find out which ones they are.
Aquafresh is quite a popular toothpaste brand that also makes oral care products designed especially for children. They actually have a training toothpaste designed for toddlers under the age of 2.
You can consider starting to use this toothpaste as soon as your baby’s first teeth erupt.
For kids above the age of 2, Aquafresh has a Bubblemint toothpaste that provides excellent protection against cavities as it contains fluoride and also offers gentle care that won’t hurt the child’s teeth.
Tom’s of Maine is a brand that makes natural care products like toothpaste, soaps, and deodorants. Their children’s toothpaste product line includes numerous options. The most popular ones are Children’s Gel Fruitilicious, Silly Strawberry, Outrageous Orange Mango, and Wicked Cool! Fluoride Toothpaste.
Having so many flavor options can help you encourage your child to maintain the habit of brushing their teeth as they can choose the flavor they love best. Or, it can help you keep things exciting by alternating between several of them.
