Don’t Kid Around With Your Child’s Toothpaste


Tiny teeth need tender loving dental care, so you need to choose a children’s toothpaste that suits their sensitive needs. There are many choices for cleaning kids’ teeth, from gentle and natural to fruity and fun. But what matters most is picking a paste that keeps your child happy and healthy.

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. Ask an expert in family dentistry in Shelby Township to suggest 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. Following are some of their favorites:

Colgate Children’s 2-in-1 Toothpaste

Toothpaste and mouthwash come 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 children of all ages.

Tom’s of Maine, Natural Children’s Toothpaste

One of the best-known natural brands, this toothpaste features calcium and silica to gently clean and fluoride to fight tooth decay, but doesn’t have any artificial preservatives, saccharine, or dyes. Its kid-friendly flavors, like Orange-Mango and Silly Strawberry, come from real fruit juice, not phony flavorings.

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.

Urtekram Organic Mild Fennel Children’s Toothpaste

This all-natural toothpaste from Denmark is very popular in Europe because of its organic origins. 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 gentle toothpaste has 100% organic and natural ingredients. With the cleaning strength of silica and the calming sensation of organic calendula flower extract, it’s ideal for beginning brushers since the lack of synthetic chemicals makes it safe if swallowed.

These five toothpastes are gentle, effective, and appealing to kids. By picking a toothpaste with all of these qualities, children will love their dental care routine.
