TOP TIPS ON THE USE OF TOOTHPASTE

* Don’t swallow toothpaste as this can cause fluoride toxicity. Children should be especially instructed against this.

* Don’t use toothpaste for pimples too excessively. Although it does seem to help, there are no studies that rule out possible side effects or dangers. People with sensitive skin are prone to burns and irritation on using them. ( We don’t recommend using toothpaste for pimples, but if it’s something you do…)

* You should brush for 2-3 minutes. Brushing vigorously for long duration does more harm than good.
