  • If the 7 year old isn't going to swallow it, adult toothpaste is fine.

  • The adult toothpaste is fine as long as they know not to swallow it. They say it isn't good to swallow too much floride....but they add floride to our water....figure that one out lol......I've read that floride could be the cause of alot of our illnesses....

  • Mine only use adult toothpaste, but it doesn't have fluoride in it. BTW it is cheaper than the kids toothpaste. Go figure.
