Fluoride toothpaste Childhood

Tooth is one part of the human body is very important. Healthy teeth would make one's appearance became more interesting and certainly more confident, otherwise unhealthy teeth other than unsightly also can cause dental diseases on a very disturbing aktivvitas daily.

To get a healthy tooth, of course, necessary dental care is intensive and ongoing, one with teeth brushing. Ideally, the activity of brushing is done every day, 2-5 times per day. Brush your teeth using toothpaste to clean the plaque on the teeth, which is a layer of film of bacteria that grow on teeth and can menyebbakan caries and gum disease, other than that brushing with toothpaste can make breathing more fresh.

Additional ingredients are often added in toothpaste is fluoride, which is a lot of fluoride salts in nature, among others, can be either sodium fluoride, calcium fluoride, magnesium fluoride, aluminum fluoride, ammonium fluoride, ammonium fluorosilicates, and other salts. Fluoride compounds are useful for making teeth more resistant to brittle and prevent cavities, and also to support remineralization. Even a review of 74 studies involving more than 42,000 children under the age of 16 years stated that children who brush their teeth with fluoride toothpaste has the possibility of cavities decreased 24% compared with that using fluoride toothpaste is not.

From exposure to the above, of course, we try to teach our children to brush teeth regularly with fluoride toothpaste from the starting five, so it can become a habit into adulthood. But already we know that excess fluoride compounds in children can adversely affect the teeth?

Dental fluorosis causes teeth to be loud and easily broken. The most mild form of fluorosis is the presence of white spots or small stains that are not too visible, whereas in moderate and severe damage will cause brown or black stains, holes and cracks in the tooth.

Apparently a lot of sources of fluoride compounds that can enter into our bodies and whether we realize that we are not aware of, so of course necessary arrangements fluoride intake of these compounds, especially in children who are still in its infancy.

So how do we choose a fluoride toothpaste safe for children?

Indonesia public health organization itself has set the amount of fluoride compound contained in the toothpaste should not be more than 0.15% calculated from the total content of F (fluorine), while for children's toothpaste its fluoride content must be less than 0.1% .

As a parent would have to pay attention to this well, such as always choosing toothpaste for children for children, and even if using toothpaste for adults then have to pay attention to proportion. For example, if the packaging is printed "Used only for adults", it is not used for children. Adult toothpaste that still may be used for children usually include:

Children ages 6 years and younger: use a pea-sized seed (diameter 6 mm) for supervised brushing to minimize the possibility of choking. In terms of intake fluride with other sources consult a dentist or doctor

If used as recommended, it can be guaranteed the benefits and safety. Since everything was going to provide benefit when used in accordance with their respective portions.
