Starting Young and Right with Sansfluo

Hello there mommies and daddies! As I have told you in my previous post, my daughter Noa has just turned 11 months yesterday.

Unlike any other babies of her age, she only has 3 teeth as of the moment. Her first tooth showed up when she was already on her 9th month. I have to admit that this fact made me a little anxious but since her pediatrician is closely monitoring her health and developmental progress, it calmed the storm in me.

Noa’s first 3 teeth at 10 months

I noticed towards the latter part of her 8th month, she started drooling a lot. At times, she was a little fuzzy and she liked biting her toys. Having observed all these, I suddenly remembered that during Noa’s baby shower when I was still 7 months pregnant to her, I was given a pink finger toothbrush that helped me go through Noa’s teething period now.

On May 14, 2011, Noa received her first Sansfluo finger toothbrush. Thanks to my classmate, Ms. Debbie Galzote! πŸ™‚

Hello, Sansfluo Finger Toothbrush! πŸ™‚

To be honest, being a first-time mom, I gave not so much attention to Noa’s future teething stage. I guess my mind was still occupied with thoughts of delivering her safe and sound. But never did I forget that I still have this little pink finger toothbrush that I could use on Noa when the right opportunity comes.

When Noa was close to her 6th month, I started doing a research about Sansfluo products that I could use on her. Like any other moms, I specifically looked for a product that is so safe yet effective for my daughter. When Noa started her solid feeding journey, I knew it was time to take out that pink Sansfluo toothbrush from the box. Since my good friend Debbie only gave me a toothbrush, the automatic question in my head was, “Where’s the toothpaste?”

I started googling it and find the best match: Sansfluo Teething Gel.

I purchased Noa’s first Sansfluo Teething Gel in SM Baby Company.Β Now, what is Sansfluo?

SansFluo comes from β€˜sans’ which means without and β€˜fluo’ which is a short for fluoride, thus β€˜no fluoride’.

SansFluo is a specially formulated toothpaste for infants and children from 0 to 6 years old. It is fluoride-free and is safe to swallow. It is non-foaming because it has no sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) and contains no harmful ingredients. Moreover, SansFluo contains xylitol!

What are the other products of Sansfluo that can help us in keeping our baby’s good oral hygiene?

  • SansFluo Toothgel Cleanser – SansFluo Toothgel Cleanser is a fluoride-free toothpaste powered by xylitol! SansFluo comes in two great tasting flavors of orange and strawberry that will surely bring joy and fun to your child’s brushing.
  • SansFluo Teething Gel – SansFluo Teething Gel is used as temporarily relief for teething pain and sore gums in infants and children. It also serves as immediate relief for canker sore and minor irritations of the mouth.
  • SansFluo Tooth and Gum Wipes– SansFluo Tooth and Gum Wipes are dental wipes for babies and children. Each box contains 12 packets sterilized in a piece of gauze soaked in ionized water and xylitol. Flavored with strawberry, each packet ideally cleans your child’s teeth and gums when tooth brushing is not available.
  • SansFluo Xylitol Swab– SansFluo Xylitol Swab has a high concentration of xylitol that is applied or coated on the tooth surface and gumline of children to inhibit the formation of plaque that causes tooth decay.
  • SansFluo Dental Brush and Gum Massager– SansFluo Dental Brush and Gum Massager with Hygiene Case comes in baby colors of pink and blue. The hygiene case makes sure your child’s soft dental brush is always clean and safe to use.
  • SansFluo Pen Grip Toothbrush– SansFluo Pen Grip type of baby toothbrush provides mommies with long handle for easy tooth brushing of their babies from 5 months up to 2 years old.

My daughter really loves the Sansfluo Teething Geland the Sansfluo Tooth and Gum Wipes! But now that she’s almost 1 year old, I decided to let her try the Sansfluo Pen Grip Toothbrush. It really has soft bristles but I noticed that Noa tries to put the entire toothbrush in her mouth! I think my daughter isn’t ready for this yet so I’m keeping it for now and wait until she turns 1 and a half years old.

I hope Sansfluo will develop a toothbrush for the in-between stage with a silicon stopper, or perhaps a silicon toothbrush to cater to the 1-2 years old age group. Nevertheless, we will surely use the Sansfluo Pen Grip Toothbrush again a few months from now. I’m very excited for this additional member of the Sansfluo family if ever! πŸ™‚

It’s very important for us moms to encourage our kids as early as now to maintain a clean and healthy lifestyle. Their young age is not a hindrance for us to teach them proper oral hygiene.

    How do you encourage or develop a good oral hygiene to your child?

    I brush my son’s teeth 3x a day. I always tell him that whenever he eats sweets he should brush his teeth after to avoid having a tooth decay and i read a book to him about the importance of dental care and the bad effects of not brushing a teeth.

  2. Mitchie Talavera says:

    I brush my child’s teeth before taking a bath. I always tell her that brushing teeth is important so that she won’t have yellow teeth. I also make sure the toothpaste she uses is the one she like to encourage her to brush her teeth.

  3. Istin says:

    I encourage my children develop a good oral hygiene by brushing our teeth together. I as a role model teach them the proper way in brushing their teeth.

    I encourage or develop good oral hygiene in my child by being a good role model. One of the best ways to teach my child anything is to do it myself. I brush my teeth, floss & rinse in front of my child at least once a day so she can learn by example.

    When Johan’s teeth started erupting, I began to use the Sansfluo Teething Gel. At first, Johan won’t let me brush his teeth. So, what I did, I downloaded toothbrushing videos and made Johan watch these so he’d know that toothbrushing is fun and there’s nothing to be scared of. I also allow him to brush his teeth first and after which, I do the brushing. I also sing songs during the process so he’d know that toothbrushing time is also a Mommy-Johan bonding moment.

  7. Gigi Mesina says:

    As soon as my children started feeding, i already introduced them on how to practice oral hygiene. This is when i cleaned their gums & mouth with soft cotton & water. As their teeth started to come out, i used a soft brush & i know that they already understand even at a very young age that right after eating they need to clean their mouth. Now, as they grow they already realized the importance of what i taught them because their dentist alway telling them that they are cavity free.

    I always make sure to brush my baby’s teeth every bath time and before she sleep. For her to know that it is important to have a clean mouth and fresh breath.. That way I can guide and teach her of what should do until she grows up.

    I am glad that there are fluoride-free toothgels in the market now for our babies, such as Sansfluo. We wont have to worry about them swallowing the gel after brushing. And it’s a plus that Sansfluo does not sting, and it tastes and smells good, too.

    I always try to lead by example, so i make sure my little man sees me brushing my teeth regularly. it is hard to develop the habit especially for small children but i do believe that practice makes perfect, so even if he refuses or make a fuss, i make sure to brush his teeth at least 2x a day!

    My son has been a long time user of Sansfluo. He loves brushing his teeth because of the orange and strawberry flavors. He was even given the “No Cavity” award by the school dentist last year. I never had a problem with him whenever it’s time to brush his teeth because my husband and I trained him well. As soon as he reached the proper age to brush on his own we patiently guided him step-by-step on how to properly brush his teeth. We also never fail to visit his dentist every six months.

    I brush my son’s teeth every night so that it would become a part of his daily routine. I am proud to say that i never have a hard time convincing him to brush his pearly whites. And, after i brush his teeth, i hand the toothbrush to him so he could have his turn in brushing his own teeth. Of course, he uses sansfluo toothgel cleanser since at his age, (23mos.) he still doesnt know how to spit. =)

    I always brush Andrea’s teeth before giving her a bath. So when I tell her that it’s bath time, she knew that we’ll brush her teeth first. We also show her how we brush our teeth hoping that she will imitate us. Brushing her teeth has never been a problem for us because we started cleaning her gums very early.
