Toothpaste

Brush your baby’s teeth without toothpaste, until they are 18 months

From 18 months you can start using a low fluoride children’s toothpaste.

  • Use a ‘dot’ of toothpaste, the size of a pea, on the toothbrush.
  • After brushing, your child should spit the toothpaste out but don’t rinse with water.
  • The fluoride in the toothpaste will stay on the teeth, helping to keep them strong
