How Much Toothpaste To Use

The amount of paste or gel needed on your brush for effective cleaning should be just a pea-sized dab of paste. If you brush correctly, holding the toothbrush at a 45-degree angle and brush inside, outside and between your teeth, the paste should foam enough to cover all of your teeth. Children under age 6, however, should be given a very small, baby pea- sized dab of toothpaste on their brush.
