Here’s a 3 minutes and 28 seconds Why Kids Should Learn Flossing Early video. See full transcript below.
Learning how to use the dental floss at such a young age can be a bit complicated for your little ones. Then again, it is a skill that you should be able to teach them so that they can enjoy healthy smiles as they grow up. Even if their baby teeth will just fall off in time, it is still important that they develop the habit of flossing their teeth as this can significantly help them in maintaining utmost dental and oral wellness.
Dental care experts suggest that parents should teach kids about the basics of flossing by age 2 to 6, as their baby teeth begin to fit closely with each other. At first, you can do it for them while giving them instructions and reminders on how to do it, until they learn to do it by themselves. Make sure that you are using a soft and flexible dental floss to avoid doing harm to their delicate teeth and gums. By age 10, kids are expected to know how to floss properly.
