Fluoride is a natural mineral that protects and strengthens the teeth against
the formation of cavities. Non-fluoridated toothpaste is recommended for
children under 2 years, as they may ingest it causing more harm than good.
Fluoridated toothpaste is not harmful to children above 2 years, as it helps
prevent tooth decay. Teeth get fluoride in several different ways, like
toothpaste, gels, or local drinking water. So it is okay if you use
non-fluoridated toothpaste for your child.
