Floss removes plaque and debris that stick to teeth and gums. It also increases blood circulation in the gums. Many dentists believe that flossing is the single most important weapon against plaque. And it's never too early to begin flossing once your child's baby teeth are fully erupted. Daily flossing is an excellent and proven method for complementing your child's brushing routine and helping to prevent cavities, periodontal disease, and other dental problems later in life.
