Is it safe to swallow flouride toothpaste repeatedly?

A. Hell and thank you for your enquiry. This a complex one and its difficult to say without knowing each childs condition . There are non - fluoride toothpastes available , but often special needs patients tend to be decay prone . using a very small pea size amount might be a possibility , so that only a very minimal amount of fluoride is ingested, and just use toothpaste once a day . your local community dental service would be the place to seek further guidance from , and the Primary Care Trust should be able to direct you to them .
