riguardo al fluoro, 2 anni fa mi sono posto il problema per i bambini e mi sono informato sul web. Il fluoro è tossico se ingerito (come nel caso delle pastiglie), ma rinforza i denti senza restare tossico se non ingerito. Quindi (1) metto poco dentifricio e (2) controllo bene che i miei figli lo sputino. A questo punto è meglio un dentifricio al fluoro con sapore non gradevole!!! Francesco

Unknown ha detto...

ci sono un mucchio di dentifrici senza fluoro che funzionano molto bene.
Gli stessi dentisti non ne consigliano l'uso. La mia dentista e questi qui (ad esempio):
Non vedo perché rischiare, specialmente con dei bambini.

So che può sembrare poco gradevole, ma un ottimo detergente per i denti con moltissime altre proprietà è l'argilla verde ventilata. Cercando su internet sin trovano un sacco di info a riguardo. Molto interessante ed efficace!Comunque non è necessario acquistare quella con il marchio! le erboristerie la vendono anche a peso! e forse, cercando bene, si "rischia" trovare un piccolo ma splendido Manuale sull'uso dell'argilla, in librerie dell'usato, in rete (o... scaricarlo?). Io lo avevo, ho sbagliato a prestarlo perché non è più tornato, e purtroppo non lo pubblicano più. Certo ne esistono altri... ma quello era davvero ottimo, sigh!
