Do Kids under 2 Years Old Need to Use a Child's Toothpaste?
Before 2014, the American Academy of Dental and Paediatric Medicine recommends that children under the age of two do not need to brush their teeth with toothpaste. However, cavities among children in recent years are on the rise and dental professionals are offering new oral care recommendations. Once the first tooth appears, start cleaning with a toothbrush with paste. This reduces the chance of cavities and lets the child develop a healthy habit of caring for their teeth. A practice as natural as eating, bathing and sleeping.
