Flossing reduces plaque build-up in between teeth in areas that a toothbrush normally is unable to reach. Practically speaking, introduce your child to flossing once any two teeth begin to touch. We recommend flossing your children’s teeth until they are able to complete the task on their own. Using traditional floss can be a challenge, but incorporating a floss holder can make this a much more pleasant and easy process for your child and you as well.
Pro Tip: Be sure to floss all your child’s teeth, including the surfaces on the back four teeth in your child’s mouth. These can be somewhat difficult to reach and are often missed.
