Kid's Toothpaste Tip

Up to 3 years old

  • Children should have their teeth brushed by an adult.
  • We recommend brushing twice a day if possible.
  • The use of fluoridated toothpaste in this age group is determined by the level of risk – by a dental professional.
  • A minimal amount of toothpaste, a “smear” or size of a “grain of rice” should be used.

Children between 3 and 6 years old

  • Should be assisted by an adult in brushing their teeth.
  • Brushing twice a day.
  • A “green pea” size of fluoridated toothpaste is safe and sufficient for this age group.
