Choosing the best toothpaste can seem like a difficult process with all the choices out there  What if they don’t like the flavor? What is the texture bothers them? What if it’s not ADA approved? Pediatric Dentistry of Suffolk County is here to ease the stress and let you know exactly what toothpastes you should be looking for! Take a look at our favorite natural and regular toothpastes

Natural Toothpastes

Natural toothpastes are those made with only natural ingredients. The best natural toothpastes include:

Tom’s of Maine Silly Strawberry

What’s not to love about the taste of “Silly Strawberry”? In addition to the fun name and taste, it’s loaded with natural cleaning ingredients. Tom’s contains Glycerin, Water, Calcium carbonate, Hydrated silica, Fragaria Vesca (Strawberry) Juice And Other Natural Flavors, Carrageenan (Seaweed – Eucheuma sp.), sodium Gluconate (Derived From Coconut And/Or Palm Kernel Oil).

Weleda: Children’s Tooth Gel

Our favorite part about this toothpaste is the mild mint flavor. A lot of our little patients aren’t the biggest fans of a strong, minty taste. This paste give your child just enough for fresh breath and protects the teeth naturally. With safe-to-swallow essential oils, silica to gently clean, and extracts of calendula flowers to strengthen the gums, you can’t go wrong!

Dr. Brite Mineral Kid’s Toothpaste

Dr. Brite is organic, plant-based, and fluoride-free. The main ingredients include coconut oil and activated charcoal to naturally whiten and brighten your child’s teeth! Created by a dentist, you can trust this brand for keeping your kid’s mouth healthy and clean.

Regular ToothPastes

Regular toothpastes aren’t made of strictly natural ingredients, but they have some other benefits that natural pastes do not.

Aquafresh Kids Toothpaste

This toothpaste is smooth and gentle on the mouth. It has a light mint flavor and is packaged in an creative looking bottle. This toothpaste contains fluoride and other antiplaque components to keep a healthy, cavity-free mouth!

Kid’s Crest Cavity Protection Sparkle Fun Toothpaste

This toothpaste  is loaded with cavity-fighting components. The falor is fun, and the color sparkles. What else could a kid ask for? Kid’s Crest also includes a clinically proven Fluristat that’s gentle on tooth enamel
