Toothpaste!

My dentist just recommended a toothpaste that is fluoride free, but has a natural ingredient ( a derivative of chocolate) that functions like fluoride. I am super excited about this!! I have read many articles about fluoride that scare me, but I also know that fluoride protects teeth and prevents cavities. I am so glad that I have found this product! I will warn you, it is expensive. I paid $10 for one regular sized tube at whole foods. Whole Foods is the only place in New Orleans that carries it, but of course you can get I online. It is called Theodent.

  1. Does your son like the taste of it?

  2. He does Stephanie. It is minty, but mild compared to other mint toothpaste. When I was researching the toothpaste, I did see that there is a kids version. I bet it has a flavor that most kids would like.

  3. Wondering if there is any data behind this recommendation – has it been studied on human teeth? Very interesting if so! If not, I’d follow the current AAP recommendations for a minimal smear of fluoride toothpaste beginning at tooth eruption.
