Should children be flossing their teeth?

Yes, children should be flossing their teeth whenever possible. Children are not exempt from flossing and should be flossing their teeth with the same frequency as adults – at least once a day. In saying this, we understand that flossing for children can be difficult, particularly if they have not developed a solid technique to doing so. If your child is not comfortable using traditional dental floss, a water flosser may be a better alternative.
