A 49-year-old member asked:

No: If you want to whiten your teeth, don't waste you money on toothpaste, make an appointment with your dentist, get your teeth and gums checked out, and talk to the dental professionals about what you want your teeth to look like. They will make sure you know all the aspects of why your teeth are discolored, and how that can be rectified.
A female asked:

Why?: Off label use of any product cannot be recommended, so don't use toothpaste to treat burns. That being said, depending on the brand of toothpaste, obviously there was some reagent which was intended to use on gingiva but when introduced on a burn on your baby, it bubbled. Likely it is a peroxide compound, but that is just a guess. Next time use a burn compound instead of toothpaste.

Flouride ?: You obviously do not have to do that, as a parent you have the ability to avoid Fluoride for what ever reason you wish. That being said, we in the dental profession believe its use in a very small amount improves the ability of teeth to resist the bacteria which causes tooth decay. We have significant research to demonstrate that is correct, and toothpaste is a good way to administer it.
