Default Adult toothpaste

my son is 4 years old right now. he's still using the little kids toothpaste.. meaning the one's were you can swallow. i don't teach him to eat it or course but just incase it happens by accident. so, i was wondering.. when would be the right age to put him on the crest toothpaste? what happens if he does swallow some?

nothing will happen if he only swallows a amount used to brush your teeth. the warning level is only incase your child decideds to eat the whole tube. i think it all depends on your child. has he showed that he is responsible with putting a safe amount on his toothbrush? and when he first starts using "adult" toothpaste he probably wont like it because it will taste menty where kids toothpaste is fruity. good luck and just moniter him.

Default Fluoride

Children's toothpaste is made with extra levels of an important mineral, fluoride. This mineral helps the children's teeth become strong as they grow. I would suggest talking to your child's dentist about this, but I would say that he is still too young. After all, if there is any risk at all, wouldn't it be better safe than sorry?

i think it just depends on the development of your childs teeth. my nephew lost his first tooth at the age of 5. but his tooth growing in behind looks like a giant chicklet. haha we teast him but his dentist says his mout will continue to grow n his teeth will look normal in a year or two and not to worrie.

i know that most kids dont like adult toothpaste when they first transition for kiddy toothpaste. Its mainly because sometimes, depending on what kind of toothpaste it is, it can be too strong and give them a burning sensation in their mouths unlike the soothing that the candy bubble gum might have given them. I first started using adult toothpaste when I started first grade. I didn't like it at all but I got used to it after awhile.

Transitioning from fruity kiddy tooth paste to minty adult tooth paste is hard. It was especially for me when I was younger. I didn't make the switch until I was 8 or 9 I'm not completely sure. I didnt like it at first because I would burn my mouth but I got used to it. After trying Listerine for the first time tooth paste didn't seem that bad...My little cousin made the transition at 4...and he didn't have a problem with it...he likes the minty taste. So it also depends on the kid.

i think as long as you pay attention to the child and his or her brushing habits then i think it would be ok for you to switch them to an adult mint toothpaste. make sure you do not put too much paste on the first few times because is can be a bit spicy for them and it might discourage them from wanting to use spicy toothpaste. so take it easy on them and let them choose.
