Dental Floss is the finest tool we have to clean between teeth. Toothbrushes cannot reach between the tight. contacts of a child's back teeth. We, therefore, recommend that parents floss between their children's teeth. By the age of 10, children are generally able to floss by themselves.

Flossing Wands
To ease in the flossing procedure, there have been several innovative tools that have been invented. Among the easiest to use are the different varieties of flossing wands. These prove effective at assisting with flossing when dexterity has not fully formed in a child's hand. Remember to dispose of the flossing wand after use.
