What flossing tools are best for children?

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.
