Yes! Carousel Pediatric Dentistry recommends using fluoridated toothpaste with the eruption of a child’s first tooth. The amount of fluoride toothpaste used is the most important factor in ensuring optimal health benefits while limiting any potential risks. For children under 3, we recommend brushing two times per day with just a smear of toothpaste about the size of a grain of rice on their toothbrush. Children between 3 to 6 years of age should use a pea-sized amount of fluoride toothpaste when brushing, two times per day.
