sorry to add more, the toothpaste for children do not have the harsh polishing grit in the toothpaste that actually is abrasive to enamal - its best to have children use the non-abrasive tooth paste and not use adult strength mouthwash - bad bad combination
Yes, there is a difference between the two toothpastes. Children's toothpaste has a lower amount of fluoride (under 1,000 ppm - parts per million) as well as less risk of SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulfate) a poisonous chemical.
Yep, children's is usually less stronger on the minty side, and it doesn't include all the stuff we love: i.e., whitening, strengthening, etc. It just gets the germs out of their mouths.
good answer mr/mrs Lord - the SLS is very well known to poison children when and if they use mouthwash - the mixture of the two can and will cause vomitting and potential heart failure -
