What makes kid's toothpaste different from any other kind?!

Question: What makes kid's toothpaste different from any other kind!?
I am just curious what the difference is!. There seem to be better flavors in the kids version, however, is it weaker strength than regular toothpaste!. As a person who wears braces I have to brush my teeth several times a day, and it gets boring only having mint or cinammon!.Www@Answer-Health@Com

2 differrences!.!.!.

1!. Kids toothpaste have a little elss fluoride in them!.

2!. KKids pastes have flavors that supposedly kids like better!.

As a dentist, I really don't care what brand paste my aptients use!. The toothpaste really makes no difference - it is the LENGTH OF TIME YOU USE IT that makes the most difference!.

2 minutes with no toothpaste is better than 1 minute with the most expensive paste!

If you want to find the BEST flavors, go to www!.tannerstastypaste!.com - the have a chocolate ice cream flavor and a cake icing flavor that tastes REALLY good!

Good Luck,

Kids toothpaste does not have fluoride in it which can be harmful if swallowed!. I don't remember which brand makes it but I have seen orange flavored toothpaste for adults too!. I had braces myself for 2 years and know how boring the same flavors can get!. Since you are putting so much money and effort into having a beautiful smile, it is best to use the regular toothpaste so you are getting enough fluoride!.Www@Answer-Health@Com

Flavor!.!.!.if you read on the back of crest or colgate you will see that it contains fluoride!. There are some non fluoridated toothpastes on the market for infants because they tend to like the flavor too much and decide to eat it!. Crest kids has fluoride but if you read closely it states only to use a pea size amount!. I use the bubblegum flavor alot!.Www@Answer-Health@Com

It is because they don't have harmful things that can hurt you if swallowed!.Www@Answer-Health@Com
