Kids dentistry requires a special touch. Sometimes it’s difficult to get your children to brush, let alone to floss. As your kids get ready to go back to school, tuck this coloring sheet into their backpacks to remind them of the importance of dental care!
Flossing is just as important as brushing to keep your teeth healthy in the long run. As kids grow up and their permanent teeth come in, it becomes even more important to emphasize flossing to prevent plaque buildup, cavities, and decay between the teeth as well as gingivitis.
Start building healthy habits early – let your kids know that they need to haul themselves to the bathroom to floss!
