This Tool Can Help Your Child Floss Like a Boss!
Posted on July 27th, 2022
Hey Houston parents, how diligent are you about flossing once a day? Unless you’re an avid flosser, you probably hate this question. However, we don’t ask to shame you, so keep that in mind when we ask how much you help your young one floss.
We know it’s not particularly easy to get string in between their little teeth, especially because it usually isn’t comfortable for them to open wide while you try to make sure you don’t snap the floss roughly up and down. That’s why we’re excited whenever we get to share with parents that there’s another way to remove up to 99.9% of plaque—one that your kid is likely to enjoy much more, too!
What’s the Secret?
It might not be much of a secret considering the first model was invented in 1962, but water flossers have come a long way since then and can help children remove debris and plaque from their gumline and between teeth, too! There are even models made specifically for children they can decorate and make their own.
Introducing a water flosser can make your child’s oral hygiene routines less of a struggle. They may even ask you, “Is it time to brush and water floss yet?”
If you have any questions about water flossers, or you’d like to schedule a checkup for your child so they can show off how well they’re water flossing, contact Dr. Meghna Dassani at Dassani Dentistry today!
