How much toothpaste should I use?

A very small amount, about the size of a small pea is more than adequate. Children tend to swallow a fair amount of the toothpaste and, over time, this can cause white spots to form on permanent teeth due to the excess of fluoride.

    Television commercials always show a big strip of toothpaste which is way too much. These companies are just trying to get you to use excessive amounts of toothpaste so that you will end up buying more frequently.
