A very mild flavoured mint toothpaste with 1450ppm fluoride. All children are recommended to use a toothpaste containing at least 1000ppm fluoride. Between 0-3 years old a smear of paste should be used. Over 3 years old a pea-sized blob should be used.
Children need help brushing their teeth especially when teeth are erupting and also when they start to lose baby teeth and adult teeth are erupting. It is important that an adult brushes at least once each day, ideally at night time. As a rule of thumb, until a child can tie shoelaces, demonstrating reasonable coordination and dexterity, they will need help to remove plaque from all tooth surfaces.
Brushing should take place last thing at night and one other time each day using a pea-sized blob of fluoride toothpaste. Spit out after brushing, but do not rinse. Fluoride helps to strengthen teeth and protect against acid and sugar attack by remineralising the tooth surfaces. More healthy tips for happy teeth can be found here.
