"Fluoride is a wonderful benefit but it needs to be used carefully", Mary Hayes, pediatric dentist in Chicago was quoted by Daily Mail. Additionally, it's unknown whether or not the toothpaste reported was fluoride or non-fluoride. According to the CDC, children aged 3 and under should only use "a smear the size of a rice grain", while kids between the ages of 3 and 6 should use no more than a pea-sized amount. Of those who used too much toothpaste, 17.8 percent go the full load, or the entire space of the toothbrush, and 20.6 percent go the half load. Young kids may push for independence in brushing their teeth, but kids' toothpaste tastes sweet, according to the team."You don't want them eating it like food".
You can't have too much of a good thing and in the case of your children's toothpaste use, this is especially true. Stanford Children's Health's website noted that regardless of the brand, as long as the toothpaste contains fluoride, it should be enough to support regular dental health practices. Young children swallowing too much fluoride toothpaste can experience dental fluorosis, or teeth discoloration, which only affects teeth developing under the gums.
The CDC also found that almost 80 percent of 3 to 15-year-olds started brushing their teeth later than advised, which is when the first tooth grows out.
However, the study showed that when teeth are forming, too much fluoride can lead to tooth streaking or spottiness or dental fluorosis. And this led to the addition of fluoride to toothpaste, mouthwash, tap water and few other products.
Brushing with an excessive amount of toothpaste can harm enamel, as a result of youngsters might swallow an inordinate amount of fluoride whereas their tooth is creating, the CDC says.
Further, over one-third of children (34.2 percent) analysed in the study only brushed their teeth once per day, not twice as is recommended to reduce the risk of cavities.
