Flossing is an important part of any good oral health routine, and one that is often missed. Building positive oral health habits with your children at a young age will help them throughout their life.
Flossing can be tricky for kids, so it’s important to help them as they learn to do it on their own. As a general rule, once your child can tie their shoes on their own, it’s usually a good time to have them learn to floss on their own as well.
Flossing is key to strong oral health, so make sure you help your kids form healthy habits early in their lives!
