Kids can get a new toothbrush every year or two.
But if you miss your child one, you can get her another.
That’s because toothpaste and other oral care products are sold by a number of retailers, and a lot of the products are not necessarily safe to share with kids, said Karen Schoenfeld, the director of public education at the American Academy of Pediatrics.
“That’s why you want to be sure that your child is getting the right kind of toothpaste or other products,” she said.
“It’s also why you should make sure that you are getting the best products and make sure they’re all free of fluoride.”
Here’s what you need to know about fluoride.
What are toothpastes?
Toothpastes come in a variety of brands, but they are made of a liquid and usually contain fluoride.
Toothpaste is made of water, usually distilled, and contains a mixture of sodium fluoride and chlorine.
But, because fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral, it can also be found in other products, including baby toothpaste, toothpaste for kids, toothbrushes, toothpaste packets and mouthwash.
In general, toothpads and toothpastés are good choices for kids because they are more hygienic and less likely to cause a chemical imbalance.
The most common types of toothpastsees and toothpaste include: Toothpaste for adults, or OTC: Regular toothpaste.
