Anchorage Dentist Recommends 3 Best Toothpastes for Kids , Anchorage, Alaska

Nothing brightens your day like your child’s smile, and encouraging good oral hygiene at an early age is one of the most important things you can do to help them maintain that vibrant, healthy grin.

For families in Anchorage, AK, Family First Dentistry is the go-to place for caring, kid-friendly dentistry. According to their staff, a strong at-home care routine, in conjunction with regular trips to the dentist, is essential for lifelong oral health. Below, the team lists their picks for the top three toothpaste choices to keep your child’s pearly whites shining brightly. 

Top 3 Most Recommended Toothpaste Options for Kids

1. Tom’s of Maine®, Natural Anti-Cavity Toothpaste for Children (in Outrageous Orange Mango or Silly Strawberry)

Tom’s of Maine is one of the best natural healthcare brands on the market. This gentle, kid-friendly toothpaste is made of all-natural ingredients, with no artificial preservatives, dyes, or saccharine. It does, however, contain real fruit juice for a delicious taste, and offers natural defenses against acid and bacteria. It’s also approved by the American Dental Association (ADA)

2. Colgate® Children’s 2-in-1 Toothpaste

DentistColgate has quite a bit of experience in children’s dental care products, and this item is just one of the brand’s many offerings. Available in watermelon and strawberry, this toothpaste is another popular option for kids who enjoy fruity flavors. This ADA-approved toothpaste even comes with its own toothbrush—hence the “2-in-1.” Because it isn’t completely preservative-free, dentists advise it is best for children ages five and older. 

3. Natural Dentist® Toothpaste Child Cavity Zapper Fluoride Gel Berry Blast

If your child has braces, they may find that plaque tends to pile up in crevices and hard-to-clean spots. This toothpaste offers an excellent solution, as it contains naturally soothing ingredients, like Xylitol and Aloe vera, which help kill bacteria and reduce the harmful effect of acids. Kids will love its sparkles as well as its flavor. 

Helping your child maintain a daily brushing regimen is one of the most important things you can do for their oral health and overall well-being. Be sure to also make regular visits to the dentist for teeth cleanings and checkups a part of their routine.
