The 5 Best Toothpastes for Kids

Toothpaste

Before bringing your children to the family dentist, you should begin teaching your child healthy oral care habits at home. Initially, you may find children resistant to the “chore” of brushing their teeth, however you can try to make the experience fun and instill good habits early. Take your child to the store and let him or her pick out a toothbrush and toothpaste. If they’re old enough, help them understand what to look for, such as the ADA symbol on the package or brands that you have found safe and suitable for your household. Daily dental care is an essential habit for long term health. Below is a list of toothpastes that are ideally-suited for children, including very young children or children with braces. This list will help you determine the best toothpaste for encouraging lifelong dental care for your child.

Tom’s of Maine, Natural Anti-Cavity Toothpaste for Children (Outrageous Orange-Mango). Looking for something all natural that delivers a tough defense against bacteria and acids? Look no further than Tom’s of Maine. This toothpaste contains only natural ingredients, including real fruit to offer optimal dental care and a delicious taste your kids will love.

Weleda Mint Children’s Toothpaste. Go organic with this completely natural treatment toothpaste designed to promote healthy teeth and gums. This toothpaste is formulated for sensitive gums and comes highly recommended by family dentistry experts as a suitable “first” toothpaste for young children.

Colgate Children’s 2-in-1 Toothpaste. Colgate, a name you know and trust, offers a delightfully flavored toothpaste for the older children in your family. This two-in-one toothpaste comes in fun flavors like strawberry and watermelon and comes packed with a toothbrush. As a parent you can rest easy knowing this toothpaste is also approved by the American Dental Association (ADA).

Natural Dentist Toothpaste Child Sparkle Berry Blast. Does your child have braces? Try out the best all-natural toothpaste for kids with orthodontics. Plaque and other bacteria can hide in hard to reach places when kids have retainers, braces, and similar oral appliances. This toothpaste contains ingredients designed to protect and soothe, such as aloe vera gel and xylitol.

Organic Mild Fennel Children’s Toothpaste. Compact and 100% organic, this toothpaste from Denmark is formulated with essential oils to take the brushing experience to a whole other level, reducing bacteria and promoting cleaning in hard-to-reach spaces. It’s a pricier option, but when you find a toothpaste your child loves to brush with, it’s worth every penny.

It’s never too early to begin teaching your kids about the importance of good dental care. Finding a toothpaste that ideally suits their health needs and throws in a little fun, too, can set them up for healthy dental care habits for the rest of their lives.
