How to Use Fluoride Toothpaste

It’s important to brush your teeth with fluoride toothpaste regularly. This is because fluoride is a natural mineral that strengthens and nourishes the teeth, giving them the ability to fight tooth decay and enamel erosion. All in all, fluoride helps you have a strong and healthy smile. If you have fluoride toothpaste, our dentist, Dr. [doctor_name], is happy to help you use it by giving you the instructions you need.

The amount of paste you use depends on your age. If you are 3-6 years old, it’s best to only use a rice-sized amount of paste. If you are older than 6 years old, you should only use a pea-sized amount of paste. Many people cover their toothbrush bristles with the paste, but that’s not necessary. After you’re done scrubbing your smile, spit the extra toothpaste out of your mouth and leave the remaining toothpaste on your chompers. This is recommended for the brushing routine that isn’t followed by flossing or rinsing. Leave the paste on your teeth for about 30 minutes to let the fluoride seep into your tooth enamel and strengthen it. Make sure to brush your teeth with this paste twice a day for two minutes each time.
