Which strength of fluoride toothpaste is best for children? Cochrane plain language summaries help find the answers

The Cochrane Oral Health Group has launched a new section of its website to make evidence more user-friendly.

Making sense of the evidence for oral health decision making takes topics in dental health and links to the Cochrane plain language summaries of relevant reviews.

The first topic area is tooth decay, or dental caries. Do fluoride varnishes work? What strength of toothpaste should you use on your child’s teeth? Do plastic sealants prevent decay? All these questions and more are answered.

Look out for more topic areas, coming soon!
