Sensodyne pro enamel for children
I have never had any problems getting Little Miss to clean her teeth, but because she still has a mixture of big and baby teeth I do like to get her to use toothpastes specially formulated for children's teeth.
**What Does it do?**
The toothpaste promises to help to protect against acid erosion and tooth decay. Apparently dentists are concerned about the acid erosion caused by fruits, juices and soft drinks, because these acids soften the enamel and it can then be slowly worn away. Children get new teeth between the ages of 6-13 years and these teeth are vulnerable to attack. This toothpaste is specially formulated to strengthen the tooth enamel to help protect the developing teeth. It will therefore help protect against cavities, and harden tooth enamel so this seems just what the dentist ordered!!
**So who is it for?**
The toothpaste is formulated for children between the ages of 6 and 12 years. It can also be used for younger children- under the age of 6, a pea sized amount of toothpaste should be used and children under the age of 3 years should use just a smear of toothpaste.
**Product and Packaging...**
The toothpaste comes in a cardboard box with all the information and instructions on the box. I open up the box and find the tube of toothpaste which is thicker and shorter than tubes of toothpaste I am used to. The blue screw on/off lid is bigger than the lids on adult toothpaste tubes which makes it easy for little hands to take it on and off.
The toothpaste is released by giving the tube a squeeze but before we do this, adult help is required to tear off the foil cover. When we squeeze out the toothpaste, it is white with no other colour, and having cleaned my own teeth with it, i find that the taste is minty but not overpoweringly so, just a really nice mild mint taste. Definitely a hit with little Miss, who was tiring of the more sweet flavoured toothpastes which are formulated for children.
**How to use it...**
For children over the age of 6 years, the toothpaste should be used as an adult toothpaste. A with adults, teeth should be brushed twice a day to help prevent tooth erosion.
**Price and Availability...**
The toothpaste can be purchased from supermarkets and chemists and costs around the £2 mark for 50ml.
The toothpaste tastes good and is suitable for adults and children alike. Little Miss has no problems using the toothpaste and actively likes the taste so there is no problem getting her to clean her teeth twice a day. For me, this is enough to make it a good toothpaste. Given that I don't know a lot about toothpastes and really don't know whether a toothpaste is helping to fight against erosion, I am happy with this toothpaste because so far, Little Miss has not needed any treatment on her teeth, all of which remain cavity free.
A reasonably priced effective toothpaste which I would recommend for children.
Thanks for reading.
