Discover the Best and Brightest Toothpastes for Kids

Toothpaste

One of the first dental care habits that children develop is brushing their teeth every day. While it may seem like a basic task, it can start them on a healthy path to a lifetime of good dental care. But the secret to making kids want to brush is choosing the right children’s toothpaste. While you want one that gently cleans and protects, kids crave one that’s tasty and fun. The solution is finding one perfect paste that keeps kids healthy and makes everyone happy.

With so many types of toothpaste for kids, it’s not always easy to know which is best. 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 Detroit to recommend the right choice for your child.

Still, some children’s toothpastes are all-around favorites. They’ve earned the respect of family dentistry experts, the approval of parents, and the love of children. These are five of the favorites:

Tom’s of Maine, Natural Children’s Toothpaste – One of the most well-known natural brands on the market, this toothpaste is as popular for what it has as what it doesn’t. It features calcium and silica to gently clean, along with fluoride to fight tooth decay, but does not have any artificial preservatives, dyes, or saccharine. It is available in kid-friendly flavors like Silly Strawberry and Orange-Mango, but true to the brand’s natural nature, those tangy tastes come from real fruit juice instead of fake flavorings.

Weleda Children’s Tooth Gel – Treat baby teeth with kid gloves with this very gentle toothpaste made from 100% natural and organic ingredients. Featuring the cleaning strength of silica and the calming sensation of organic calendula flower extract, it is ideal for beginning brushers because the lack of synthetic chemicals makes it safe if swallowed.

Colgate Children’s 2-in-1 Toothpaste – The dynamic duo of toothpaste and mouthwash comes 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 sure to be a favorite for kids of all ages.

Natural Dentist Kids Sparkle Berry Blast Toothpaste – With the cavity prevention of natural fluoride and the cleaning power of natural antimicrobials, 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 native of Denmark is extremely popular in Europe for its organic origins. Rather than rely on synthetic substitutes, this toothpaste only uses ingredients found in nature and soothing essential oils to make brushing a purely enjoyable experience.

All of these toothpastes are gentle, effective, and appealing to kids. By picking a paste with all of these qualities, children learn to love their dental care routine.
