Anyone have recommendations on toothpaste for beginner? Fluoride or not? I've also heard of xylitol as well and dont know what to get. Help! He doesn't know to spit out when brushing yet.
We use Tom’s fluoride-free toothpaste. You can find it at target or on amazon.
My son’s dentist recommended using only water on his toothbrush in the morning and a tiny bit of fluoride toothpaste when I brush his teeth at night. Too much fluoride is dangerous so only a tiny bit once a day if you are going to use fluoride toothpaste.
We also use Tom's strawberry fluoride-free toothpaste. My son loves the taste so much he runs to the bathroom when I tell him to brush his teeth. 😊
I checked the EWG. org website and learned that Jack n Jill brand was the safest. My daughter loves the JnJ blueberry flavored toothpaste!! 😊
We were advised by our dentist not to use fluoride until they can spit 100% of the time. When they visit the dentist is when they can get fluoride treatment and that’s enough.
We use the paw patrol orajel fluoride free toothpaste. My son seems to like the flavor and he loves paw patrol so brushing his teeth isn’t as bad as it used to be. My dentist said that he doesn’t use any toothpaste with his 3 yr old daughter. Just wet the toothbrush and brush. Training toothpaste (fluoride free) is just for taste.
Thank you guys for the feedback!
Our dentist recommended Spry with xylitol. It’s fluoride free. My daughter loves brushing her teeth. We also used Toms and she liked that as well. They sell it on amazon but I think I got a tube a Sprouts.
We use the berry flavor Elmo crest training toothpaste.
what im gonna do is, now she just chews on her toothbrush with a dot of flouride free toothpaste before bed.. and when i notice she's actually brushing at the sink after showing her every day how to, then switch to regular toothpaste if you wish to use flouride or not that's your decision of course 🐣
Kids aren't really able to fully comprehend spitting until around 6 years old. We use fluoride free toothpaste at the recommendation of my dentist. If you buy something with xylitol, be aware that if you have dogs, it is extremely fatal for them to ingest.
Toms fluoride free. My sons dentist says no fluoride until they can spit it out. Depending on age you might not even need to use toothpaste yet.
