Why do I need to floss my child's teeth?

March 11th, 2022

Why is flossing so important? We hear this all the time! Did you know that baby teeth are supposed to have space in between them? As your child grows, their teeth start to move closer together and touch tightly! When this happens, it’s important to start flossing. But why?

  • Toothbrushes can’t clean in between teeth
  • Food tends to get stuck between teeth when we eat and will stay there for a long time if not taken out, leading to cavities!
  • Floss helps remove food, keeps the inner surfaces of our teeth clean, and prevent cavities!

It’s never too early to start flossing! (And we don’t only mean the fortnite dance :D)
