When should I start cleaning my baby’s teeth?

Brush your baby’s teeth and gums twice daily after meals to help establish a healthy brushing routine.

Why is there no fluoride in the Aquafresh® Training toothpaste?
Fluoride is the main ingredient used in most toothpastes to protect against cavities. However, a condition known as dental fluorosis (white spots on permanent teeth) can develop if a child receives too much fluoride during early tooth development. The Food and Drug Administration doesn't recommend fluoride toothpaste for children under two years of age unless recommended by a dentist or health professional because children under two do not have control of their swallowing reflex and do not have the skills yet to spit out the toothpaste properly.
What is the active ingredient in Aquafresh® Training toothpaste?
