Start Early – Teaching your little ones to floss!

Little kids love to imitate grownups, which is why making dental care and flossing a family activity is a good idea. Brush and floss your teeth alongside your little ones and let them watch you floss your teeth. They will want to be just like you.  It may also be fun if you let them brush your teeth while you brush theirs.

Allow your child to choose their own toothbrush, dental floss, toothpaste, and dental flossing picks. This can help them to personalize the activity and make it more interesting. After all, what kid wouldn’t want to floss with a fruit flavor dental floss in neon colors or brush their teeth with a toothbrush that has their favorite cartoon character on the front?

At their next visit, the Yahara Hygiene team and Dr. Thor would enjoy watching your little flosser in action.
