Starting fluoride toothpaste

Unless otherwise directed by your pediatric dentist, fluoride toothpaste should be introduced when a child is 2-3 years of age. Prior to that, parents may clean the child’s teeth with water and/or non-fluoridated toothpaste and a soft-bristled toothbrush. When fluoride toothpaste is used, parents should supervise brushing and make sure the child uses no more that a pea-sized amount. Children should spit out and not swallow excess toothpaste while brushing.
