Best natural kids' toothpaste brands in Australia | Mum's Grapevine

This is the way we brush our teeth … with kid-safe toothpaste. For littlies that haven’t quite got the swish and spit, it’s inevitable that some of the toothpaste gets swallowed. And a natural kids’ toothpaste keeps freshly sprouted toothy pegs germ-free while giving toddlers a fun (and tasty) daily brushing routine to really sink their teeth into.

Formulated with less fluoride than regular toothpaste, kids’ toothpaste is safe to swallow and recommended from 18 months to help strengthen teeth, promote healthy gums and prevent cavities and decay.

A little toothpaste goes a long way, so it’s worth investing in one that’s all-natural, safe and effective.

When should kids start using toothpaste?

According to Raising Children, kids should start using toothpaste as part of their brushing routine from the age of 18 months. That said, some specially formulated and all-natural toothpaste is suitable for babies as young as six months.

What makes children’s toothpaste different?

Children’s toothpaste contains less fluoride than regular adults’ toothpaste. While fluoride helps prevent decay and cavities, young kids are at risk of swallowing too much of it which can lead to fluorosis.

When can children use regular toothpaste?

In Australia, dentists recommend that kids start using regular toothpaste from the age of six to ensure their teeth are well-protected.
