The best flossing tools for children are the ones that will make floss fun and a life-long daily habit. Look for
- Interesting colors and shapes
Sure, you can pick the standard Y-shaped floss holder but what kid wouldn’t like the Crayola colors or the special characters on the handle if your budget will allow it?
- Easy to handle
Children have small hands so select a floss pick or floss placker with a smaller grip for the handle.
- Fun flavor
Look for mixed berry or grape unless your child really loves mint.
- Just their size
In addition to having smaller hands, children have smaller mouths and teeth than adults so a child’s floss pick should be smaller too.
