  • My toddler grandson watches me do it and wants to do it. I let him do it himself and then I do it a little to get him used to it. His teeth are pretty far apart.

  • I tell my son to use the floss like its a snake ..snaking between his teeth. His dentist says its Ok for him to hook it thru and slide it, being he has a few silver caps protecting his baby teeth still....so he slides it thru a few times to get the plaque off from in between so he wont have the worry of popping off a cap!
