The Oral Health Programme Fluoride Toothpastes
The Oral Health Programme is run throughout various parts of the U.K. with the aim of improving infant oral care. Through our partnership with the manufacturer we are able to offer the official OHP Programme Toothpaste in two fluoride strengths 1000ppm and 1450ppm.
NHS advice is as follows: Brushing your teeth thoroughly with fluoride toothpaste is one of the most effective ways of preventing tooth decay. Toothpastes containing 1350-1500ppm fluoride are the most effective. Your dentist may advise you to use higher-strength toothpaste if you or your child is at particular risk of tooth decay.
- Children under three years old should brush twice daily, with a smear of toothpaste containing no less than 1000ppm fluoride.
- Children between three and six years old should brush at least twice daily with a pea-sized amount of toothpaste containing more than 1000ppm fluoride.
- Adults should brush at least twice daily with a toothpaste containing 1350-1500ppm fluoride
