Children Are Brushing Their Teeth With Too Much Toothpaste
When I was a kid, all I can remember is not wanting to brush my teeth at all. And I didn't even like the taste of toothpaste!
These days, the centers for Disease Control and Prevention says that children are brushing their teeth with so much toothpaste that it's unhealthy.
Nearly 40 percent of kids ages 3 to 6 use more toothpaste than recommended by dentists.
According to USA Today, children in that age group should use no more than a pea size amount of paste.
Brushing with too much toothpaste can damage enamel because children can swallow too much fluoride while their teeth are developing.
