UK Against Fluoridation

Dental health basics parents need to know

For most infants, the first tooth erupts at around 7 months. Irrespective of when that first tooth comes for your child, caring for their teeth starts at this very moment. Brushing should occur on a daily basis eventually increasing to 2 minutes of brushing, 2 times per day by the time your child has their full set of “baby” teeth, around 2 years of age.

Selecting a Toothpaste

Toothpaste with fluoride is always best, but not before 2 years of age. Excessive ingestion of fluoride can cause problems with their teeth in the future. Early on, you should use a fluoride-free training toothpaste. Begin transitioning to a fluoridated paste after 2 years, but just wet the bristles with paste until your child can consistently spit and not swallow the paste. This way you can avoid the excess intake of fluoride.............
