Throughout the years various commercials on TV and magazines made us believe that we should cover the entire length of our toothbrush with a thick ribbon of toothpaste. 

Toothpaste should only be the size of a pea or smallerIn fact most adult only need a pea sized amount (think frozen peas) of toothpaste to give their teeth a good clean. Kids between the ages of three to six will need a small pea sized amount (think frozen baby peas) and under 3’s will only need atiny smear of the toothpaste (about the size of the grain of rice).
