Make Kids Rush to Brush With the Right Toothpaste

Toothpaste

Developing good dental care habits at a very young age will lead to a lifetime of dental health. One of the easiest ways to establish good habits is by choosing a kid-friendly toothpaste. While these products have the power to clean and protect, their fun flavors and bright colors make kids enjoy their dental care routine.

With so many types of toothpaste for kids, it’s not easy to know which is best, since there are different kinds for different needs based on the child’s age, sensitivity, and dental care history. An expert in family dentistry in Downtown Detroit can recommend the right choice for your child.

Some kids’ toothpastes are favorites that have earned the respect of family dentistry experts, the approval of parents, and the love of children. Here are five favorites:

Colgate Children’s 2-in-1 Toothpaste

The dynamic duo of toothpaste and mouthwash comes together in this kid-friendly formula featuring cavity-fighting fluoride and breath-freshening power. With its playful package and its fun, fruity flavors like strawberry and watermelon, this is a favorite of kids of all ages.

Natural Dentist Kids Sparkle Berry Blast Toothpaste

With the cleaning power of natural antimicrobials and the cavity prevention of natural fluoride, it’s only natural that parents would prefer this healthy herbal brand. And its fruity flavor, smooth gel, and colorful tube make it naturally appealing to kids.

Tom’s of Maine, Natural Children’s Toothpaste

One of the most well-known natural brands, this toothpaste is as popular for what it has as what it doesn’t have. It features calcium and silica to gently clean, along with fluoride to fight tooth decay, but doesn’t have any artificial preservatives, saccharine, or dyes. It comes in kid-friendly flavors like Orange-Mango and Silly Strawberry, and true to the brand’s natural nature, those fruity flavors come from real juice instead of phony flavorings.

Urtekram Organic Mild Fennel Children’s Toothpaste

This all-natural toothpaste from Denmark is extremely popular in Europe for its organic origins. Rather than rely on synthetic substitutes, this toothpaste only uses ingredients found in nature and soothing essential oils to make brushing a purely enjoyable experience. 

Weleda Children’s Tooth Gel

This very gentle toothpaste is made from 100% natural, organic ingredients. With the cleaning strength of silica and the calming sensation of organic calendula flower extract, it is ideal for beginning brushers because the lack of synthetic chemicals makes it safe if swallowed.

All of these toothpastes are effective, gentle, and appealing to kids. By picking a paste with all of these benefits, children will love their dental care routine.
