What Kind of Toothpaste Should My Child Use?
Ask any dentist or medical professional this question, and you will find vastly different answers. However, one thing is certain: one should carefully choose a toothpaste that is both safe and effective for your child to use.
Many toothpastes and polishes have the potential to damage teeth. Some may contain harsh abrasives which can help deteriorate still-developing tooth enamel. Be sure to pick out a toothpaste that is recommended by the American Dental Association, in which these products have been thoroughly tested to ensure their safety.
