Kids Are Using Too Much Toothpaste; Here's What The CDC Recommends

But while it might be hard to control how kids brush their teeth, it's important, researchers say - and not just in terms of toothpaste volume.
About 40 per cent of kids ages 3 to 6 used a brush that was full or half-full of toothpaste, even though experts recommend no more than a pea-sized amount, the study found.
Too many young kids are using too much toothpaste, increasing their risk of streaky or splotchy teeth when they get older, according to a government survey released Thursday. But 12.4 percent used too little (a smear), and the remainder used too much: 20.6 percent using a "half load", as the authors describe it, and 17.8 percent going the "full load".
Kids aged three to six should only take a pea-sized amount of toothpaste.
In 2014, the dental association changed its guidelines and recommended that parents brush their children's teeth twice a day with a tiny smear of fluoride toothpaste as soon as they erupt.
You can't have too much of a good thing and in the case of your children's toothpaste use, this is especially true.
"You don't want them eating it like food", Hayes said.
The CDC also found that about one-third of kids only brushed their teeth once a day instead of the recommended twice daily. They add that this can be a concern because of excessive fluoride ingestion among the children. However, the CDC continues to recommend that parents wait to introduce fluoride toothpaste to children until they turn 2. This can lead to a lack of mineralization of the tooth's enamel known as "fluorosis", which can cause discoloration of the teeth and an unpleasant mottled appearance. The CDC additionally noticed that nearly 80 percent of kids ageing 3 to 15 years began brushing later than the suggested age of a half year.
The new report looked at the brushing and toothpaste use of around 5,157 children between 2013 and 2016. The information used for the evaluation was primarily based on parents' self-reporting. The CDC survey discovered that just about 80% of youngsters started cleaning after 1 year. And this led to the addition of fluoride to toothpaste, mouthwash, tap water and few other products.
