The best toothpaste for kids
- It can be hard to get your kids to brush their teeth, but once you find the right toothpaste, things get a little easier.
- To find the best kids' toothpaste, we consulted a pediatric dentist, reviewed American Dental Association recommendations, and tested products.
- Our top pick for the best kids' toothpaste is Tom's of Maine Silly Strawberry Toothpaste because it's all-natural, effective, and appealing to kids.
Going under the dental drill is no one's idea of a good time. I wouldn't wish a cavity on the most annoying telemarketer, let alone my kid.
We know that maintaining good dental hygiene is paramount in preventing tooth decay and other yucky oral conditions, but convincing a child to commit to a twice-a-day brushing habit can be even harder than forcing yourself to cleanse and floss before you fall facedown into bed at night. That's why choosing a kids' toothpaste that checks all the necessary boxes is key to managing your family's oral health.
The perfect kids' toothpaste for your family should taste pleasant enough that your mini-me wants to brush while using safe and healthy ingredients to offer stellar cleaning power.
We did the research, interviewed a pediatric dentist, reviewed the current pediatric dentistry recommendations, and even tested top brands on both my daughter and myself. Here are our top picks for the best kids' toothpaste you can buy.
