At my kids’ last dentist visit, the dentist said that their teeth looked good, but because their teeth are so close together, they needed to do a better job flossing their teeth. While we always have dental floss for them, even the older kids have a hard time getting the floss down in between their teeth. Even as an adult, I have found getting to those back teeth in their small mouths, can be a task. Imagine how hard it can be for them to manipulate to get in there.
The dentist recommended those floss on a stick things, the disposable flossers, but I couldn’t imagine that would make things any easier for them, but I figured I would try anything because I really do not want them having any trouble with their teeth. I was pleasantly surprised when not only did it make it easier and much more efficient for them to floss their teeth, and keep me from having to get in there (for the younger 2), they actually all flossed without a problem, and actually made a point of flossing.
Plackers, who holds the patent on the first disposable flosser, and is the only brand of flosser to feature Super Tuffloss® high-performance floss, designed to not stretch, shred or break during use. Other Plackers innovations include OrthoPick®, specifically designed for people with braces, and PlackersKids flossers in brightly colored animal shapes and berry flavors to make them fun and easy for children to use.
