When Is The Right Time To Begin Flossing Your Kid's Teeth?

Posted on 1/2/2024 by Weo Admin
A close up of a person flossing their teethIt seems a lot for your kid to brush twice daily, so you might ask whether you really need to floss their teeth. Okay, kids' teeth are subjected to elements that could bring oral problems like cavities and gum disease. Flossing is essential for the oral health of kids. However, you have to know when to begin the practice and what roles to play.

Kids Lover Sugar


By now you know that kids really enjoy sugar, not realizing the danger they are putting their oral health into. It is interesting how kids find sugar no matter how you try to keep it away from them. Therefore, you have to incorporate a flossing routine in the kid's oral hygiene practice.

To protect the kid's healthy smile, it is crucial that you help them in brushing and flossing daily. Besides, ensure you keep an appointment with a dentist to have the kid's gums and teeth checked.

When to Start Flossing Kids Teeth


The right age you should begin flossing your kids' teeth is when they are around two to three years old. Before this age, you might not need to floss the kid's teeth. The reason is that kids' teeth begin to fit closely together at around age 2 to 6. Therefore, it is this time you should start flossing.

How Long to Help your Kids Floss?


At age 2, surely a kid doesn't know how to floss. In fact, it takes more time before the child develops their dexterity to be able to floss effectively. Until then, you will have to help them until their dexterity develops to a point where they are able to do their shoelaces properly. That is the time they can floss on their own.

Age-wise, you should assist them until they are around 8 to 10 years old. During all that time, you will be actively engaging in their flossing activities and other oral hygiene practices.
