While it may be tempting to use a sparkly toothpaste to convince your children to brush their teeth regularly, those special flavors and gimmicks in children’s toothpaste may be harmful. To keep kids’ smiles clean and healthy, avoid buying them toothpastes with bubble gum or candy flavors because they could cause allergic reactions. Appearing on Fox-TV News in Portland, Oregon, Flora Stay DDS further explained that swallowing too much of toothpastes containing fluoride could put kids’ lives in danger.
She also alerted parents that children diagnosed with autism may be especially sensitive to certain toothpaste ingredients such as dyes, SLS or gluten. “Those can exacerbate their symptoms.”
To get children excited about brushing their teeth, consider Cleure Children’s Toothpaste which is free of mint (a common allergen) and fluoride. A Shopper’s Choice 2021 Winner, Cleure Children’s Toothpaste has an enjoyable Fruit Blast flavor that helps children develop better brushing habits as they protect their teeth from developing cavities.
And because it’s Cleure, you can trust that it will always have safe ingredients. It is free of dyes, parabens, triclosan, harsh preservatives, gluten, salicylates, formaldehyde, SLS and other common irritants.
All Cleure toothpastes are thoughtfully formulated with high quality, locally sourced, and naturally derived ingredients. “Our children’s toothpaste is perfectly safe if accidentally swallowed,” assures Dr. Stay.
