@ just_memom: Based on my understanding to the Pedia dentist if my bay, safe naman ang sansflou, it is recommended for the babies for their tongue and gums. Pwedeng lunukin. Pero pag madami nang ngipin si baby, it is recommended na may flouride na ang gamitin kasi it protects the teeth of the babies from cavities. Walang ganung factor ang sansflou. However, dapat konting konti na flouride lang ang ilalagay sa toothbrush ni baby kasi syempre hindi pa nila kayang iluwa yung flouride.

^^Fluoride is good po.
You can start toothpaste with fluoride kasi kelangan ng teeth yun pampatibay kahit milk teeth lang. Re kung delikado kung malulunok, yes po bawal makalunok ng sobrang fluoride.
Ang recommended na amount lang na pwedeng gamitin kapag nagttoothbrush si baby is smear lang ng toothpaste with flouride , not buong toothbrush, not even pea size (pea size is for adult).
Brush to baby's teeth then ready a damp cloth to wipe it, mabula na yun and ok lang kung hindi mo makuha lahat kasi very little lang ang fluoride ng pinahid mo, not harmful at all.

Sansfluo is like a toothpaste, just there to clean the teeth pro not really protect the teeth from stains and gingivitis, yun ang job ng fluoride. Not enough den ang vitamins na may fluoride, to make it effective it should be applied (topical application) to the teeth, not to be in take as supplements.

Flouride Warning: Toothpaste Dangers
Toothpaste is a common, everyday item, but have you ever read its contents? Commercial dental-care pastes usually contain one or more of these teeth/gum damaging ingredients — triclosan, fluoride, polyethylene glycols, surfactants (a.k.a. foaming agents such as sodium lauryl sulfate), toxic metals, artificial sugars, glycerin, hydrated silica and sodium hydroxide. Also, these ingredients are often found in so-called natural brands of toothpaste. It is wise to read all labels very carefully.

This article covers three common ingredients found in toothpastes and throws light on their pros and cons.

Fluoride

One of the most common components of toothpaste is fluoride. In simple terms, fluoride is a by-product of aluminum, copper, and iron manufacturing. Fluoride is thought to be a contaminant. It is a chemical ion of the chemical fluorine, where fluoride has one extra electron to give it an extra charge. The most common use of fluoride is in the realm of dental hygiene.

Long before fluoride come unto its own as a cavity preventer, it was used as insecticide. Today, there are conflicting views on the use of fluoride, and there is an ongoing debate on how good or bad it is for health.

The pros of fluoride

Fluoride works in two ways to protect teeth from decay and cavities. The combination of sugars and bacteria in the mouth produce an acid that causes tooth enamel erosion that damages the teeth. Fluoride protects the teeth from this demineralization. If the teeth are already damaged, fluoride starts collecting on the ‘spoilt’ areas, and the enamel is strengthened. However, fluoride will not be of much use if a cavity already exists.

Some level of fluoride is recommended by many governments in the world today for both children and adults. Children require fluoride to protect their new, permanent teeth, while adults need it to ensure there are no cavities or decays taking form.

The cons of fluoride

According to latest studies carried out by the ADA, Fluoride is fast being regarded as potentially dangerous element being sold under the guise of “good for teeth”. Slowly but surely, a fluoride-free propaganda is being put in to place to ensure there is no more exposure to it. As of now, Dementia in humans, due to exposure to fluoride, is said to double in the next two decades and triple in three.

There are many negatives that have been discovered by researchers. Some of these are simple things like:

Excess fluoride causes discolored and crumbling teeth
Laboratory animal testing has shown that fluoride influences an increase in the absorption of aluminum in the brain. Aluminum is what is found in the brains of patients with Alzheimer’s.
Fluoridation and hip fractures have been seen as related in as many as three different studies conducted by researchers.
Excess fluoride has had detrimental effects on the musculoskeletal and nervous systems. This has lead to limited joint mobility, muscular degeneration, ligament calcification, and neurological deficits.
Different studies have found a link between fluoride and about 10,000 cancer deaths per year, where men who were exposed to fluoride in the long term developed a greater likelihood of suffering from bone cancer.

Care for teeth naturally

While brushing and rinsing has its own place in your daily dental hygiene routine, there are some natural ways to ensure that you always sport a perfect set of teeth. There is a lot to be said for home remedies, most of which have been handed down through the centuries:

If you rub your teeth with bay leaf twice a week, you get sparkling white teeth
Flossing is the ideal way for healthy gums to remain healthy
You should change your toothbrush post a cold or fever, as your old one will be carrying viruses and bacteria
Use natural teeth cleaners like crunchy foods
Raw apples, celery, and carrots do a good job of cleaning your teeth while you eat them
Avoid pasty foods like peanut butter. They stick to the teeth and are a welcome invitation for tooth decay
Cheese has calcium that will coat your teeth and help fight tooth decay
Natural apple cider vinegar strengthens teeth from the inside
Rinse your mouth after drinking natural apple cider vinegar, but don’t brush your teeth right after
Next, time you buy a toothpaste, make sure to check its ingredients.  For instance, check your toothpaste for the amount of fluoride it contains. Fluoride-free toothpastes are also available in the market. A sensible approach to dental hygiene will ensure you have a set of sparkling teeth and fresh breath at all times.

may two different set kami ng toothpaste ni baby.. I use the flouride one pag day niya na mag take cherifer, yung non flouride naman pag polyviflor na yung gamit niya nung araw na yun. super kaunting smear lang pag yung with fluride sa hand towel na mallit tapos rub ko sa teeth ni baby tapos rub ulet using water naman.

favorite niya pag yung no flouride, kasi nialagay ko sa toothrush niya tapos siya na may hawak tapos ako na lang nag guide sakanya. so far, wala na kaming iyakan blues pero may kagatan parin dahil nang gigil lalo na pag hand towel gamit ko.

^ same tayo sis
my baby brushes on in the morning with Sansfluo but she's trained not to swallow so iniipon niya lang laway ready for wipes.
at night she uses pepsodent yung pinakamaliit since January pa ang dami pa reng laman, hehe! onti lang naman kasi.
sabi ng Pedia and Dentist-Pedia ni baby ok lang daw gumamit ng toothpaste with fluoride basta controlled ang paggamit, old school na daw kapag hindi pa ren ginagamitan ng fluoride kahit milk teeth  :)
i bought Colgate stages 1 toothbrush today. Medyo expensive kaso i liked the brush coz its wide and mukhang madaling maabot yung ibang teeth kahit hindi masyado naka-AHHH si baby :D
