You can never be too early in establishing good oral hygiene with your little ones. This article will discuss one of the most critical factors: the right toothpaste.
Cavities in children are more rampant than you think. For instance, in Singapore alone, more than 50% of children will experience tooth decay due to cavities.
It’s truly alarming how kids’ teeth and gum health are often overlooked. According to The Society for Pediatric Dentistry of Singapore, one of the leading causes of tooth decay is ineffective tooth brushing habits.
That’s why mamas are encouraged to find the proper brushing techniques, toothbrushes, and toothpaste for their kids.
Why is it essential to use toothpaste for kids?
There is a big difference between the formulation of toothpaste for kids and adults. The most significant one is that regular toothpaste has high fluoride content that can harm children.
When exposed to too much fluoride, kids may have a health condition known as fluorosis. This forms little white spots on their teeth. According to the CDC, “children aged eight years and younger are at risk because this is when permanent teeth are developing.”
For children younger than 2, the CDC suggests consulting with your child’s dentist if he/she recommends the use of fluoride toothpaste.
If you notice this, especially if it’s below their gum line, it would be best to consult a dentist immediately.
Meet the Mama’s Choice Baby & Kids Toothpaste
Lucky for you, there is a lot of toothpaste for the little ones. However, all these options can get a little overwhelming.
That’s why we are introducing a toothpaste that will end your search right here. The Mama’s Choice Baby & Kids Toothpaste contains just the right amount of fluoride.
On top of this, it also has other characteristics approved by dentists and mamas. Let’s dive into it!
Why Other Mamas Have Shifted to Our Baby & Kids Toothpaste
Since launching our toothpaste, many mamas have traded their adult and kids’ toothpaste brands for ours. When asked why, here are some of the considerations that they happily shared with us:
Swallowing toothpaste can cause some severe stomach issues. Teaching your kids how to spit toothpaste may take some time. In the meantime, food-grade toothpaste such as ours can ensure they are safe.
Aside from this, allowing toddlers to swallow their toothpaste is a less messy solution to brushing their teeth.
2. Contains Natural Ingredients
Like the other Mama’s Choice products, our toothpaste for kids also contains natural ingredients. Xylitol and Hydroxyapatite are the double protection agent that makes this toothpaste highly effective in preventing cavities.
Xylitol is natural sugar alcohol in plants such as fruits and vegetables. This is known to help prevent cavities and reduce bacterial growth on teeth.
On the other hand, Hydroxyapatite is a naturally occurring mineral form of calcium apatite. This is responsible for remineralizing tooth enamel for strong and healthy teeth.
On top of that, the toothpaste also has Organic Calendula that prevents or reduces gum irritation.
As you can see, these ingredients are natural alternatives to the ones we often see on adult toothpaste. This gives mamas peace of mind that the toothpaste is specially-formulated and safe for their children.
3. Free Of Harmful Ingredients
To create safe toothpaste for babies and children, we made sure to stay away from harmful ingredients. This includes fluoride and alcohol.
It’s possible to clean and remove any build-up on the teeth without fluoride. Many mamas love our fluoride-free formula to avoid the risk of fluorosis.
On the other hand, Benzyl Alcohol is commonly used in toothpaste as a preservative and taste enhancer. However, this can often lead to a stingy sensation that can be unbearable to children.
This can make brushing less pleasing, leading to anxiety whenever you brush. However, other mamas have proven the alcohol-free formulation of our toothpaste to be gentler for kids.
4. Certified and Recommended by Experts
Regarding the products we use for our children, nothing beats that stamp of approval by experts. This is especialregardingcomes to toothpaste since the product is applied to their mouths.
Since our toothpaste has been tested in some of the leading laboratories in Singapore, mamas are assured that the product has undergone the proper safety procedures.
Aside from that, this is also an excellent product for mamas on the hunt for sustainable products. The ingredients in the toothpaste are Ecocert Certified Organic. This means you can be guaranteed that we use the best environmental-friendly and socially-conscious practices.
5. Delicious Flavors
Our toothpaste’s delicious flavors allow mamas to have fun brushing sessions with their kids. There is a strawberry and bubblegum variation. The mild and pleasing taste allows kids to relax and enjoy what could otherwise be an invasive and scary experience.
