Do you ever think about the ingredients in your toothpaste? So many consumers look for teeth whitening, but there is a greater purpose your toothpaste might be missing.
“Dental health experts worry that more people are using toothpaste that skips the most important ingredient — fluoride — and leaves them at a greater risk of cavities.”
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry’s Stance
American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) encourages appropriate amounts of fluoride in toothpaste and to use such toothpaste twice a day for all children. Research has shown evidence that fluoride reduces cavities which is particularly important in young brushers. You want your kid’s teeth to be healthy from childhood to adulthood and that’s why we recommend the use of fluoride toothpaste for all children.
