Question Toothpaste

What kind of toothpaste do you use? What kind do the kids like?

I like the Crest stuff that has the mouthwash stuff in it. Dh likes the Crest that has the green tea flavor. I think Sienna would use about anything, but right now she has baby stuff that's fruity. Douglas will only use the fruity stuff too, no mint and no bubblegum for him!

I can only use Tom's of Maine as other name brand ones give me mouth ulcers...ouch! I used to love Crest Cinnamon burst.

DH is an Aquafresh guy but will use almost anything.

DD has inherited my sensitive mouth, so she uses Tom's of Maine kids.

DS loves the Colgate Watermelon stuff that comes in a little shampoo like container.

I like CloSys toothpaste that the dentist gave Corey. Awesome it the ONLY non-foaming toothpaste out there. But I can only find it online or at the dentist (20 miles away).

All of the other brands have lauryl sulfate in them and that is a foaming agent and it makes me gag and heave, every time.

So I use baking soda and a drop of peppermint extract when I am out of CloSys.

Right now my kids are using Aquafresh (the kid version). We switch around what they use though... if it has SPIDERMAN or something cool on the tube/container... that's their favorite.

I like gell toothpaste the best... I don't like the gritty feeling of the paste. Blech.
Other than that... I don't really care too much about brands & flavors.

I am a colgate original fan. We used sensodyne for a while, then got a ton of cavities/pre-cavities-so we now deal with the sensitivity by using softer toothbrushes.
