While most children don’t find flossing to be on their list of favorite things to do, it is a necessary part of achieving and maintaining good oral hygiene. We know that most kids have a tough time flossing their back teeth, it takes them extra time to floss, and that flossing can sometimes cause bleeding of the gums. However, flossing is the only way to remove plaque, food debris, and bacteria from in between your child’s teeth where a toothbrush can’t reach.

For all of the above reasons, we here at Little Rockies Pediatric Dentistry know how important it is to teach your child the proper way to floss and to reinforce this importance through leading by example.
