I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on how to help my 8 year old son. We recently went to the dentist and even though he has no cavities, the dentist suggested that he use an adult toothpaste at least once a day because of the tartar buildup on his teeth. Everything we have tried so far makes him gag and then he throws up. He likes the watermelon flavored toothpaste, I am running out of ideas and tired of putting him through the gagging experience. Any suggestions???
