  • 4y DS. Yes, our dentist recommende ACT. It has flouride in it and i don't have dental insurance so i need to do everything i can to prevent cavaties. Sure, his dental health is important to me but i also can't afford an unhealthy mouth.

  • Can't remember the brands but she used the stuff that left stuff on your teeth colored and now she uses bubble gum flavored generic. She's 5 now and has been using mouthwash for a little over two years.

  • ACT has a special type for kids. That is what our Dentist recommended and what we use. They have been using mouthwash since they were about five.
