The Importance of Fluoride for Children

Rubbing toothpaste on your teeth can provide four times better fluoride protection, according to a recent study.  Researchers tested various brushing techniques and brushing either two or three times a day with high-fluoride vs standard toothpaste.

The results revealed that those who used a high-fluoride toothpaste three times a day had four times better protection than those who used standard toothpaste twice a day.

Researchers also found that massaging toothpaste onto teeth with a finger to be at least as effective as a third brushing in increasing the amount of fluoride in the mouth.
