Should your children be using dental floss? Yes. Flossing is just one healthy dental habit your kids can develop early and keep with them for life. You should help your kids begin to floss between the ages of 2 to 6, or when their teeth begin to fit closely together.
If you don’t know what to do with your kids when it comes to flossing, here are some important tips:
Flossing is an important part of avoiding cavities. If cavities are left untreated, they can cause a lot of pain and other problems in your child’s mouth.
Untreated cavities in baby teeth can also lead to problems in adult teeth because the infection can spread to the adult teeth that are still forming underneath the gums. The infection can even spread into the blood which can be especially dangerous if it reaches the brain or heart. By helping your children floss, you can help them can avoid these problems.
