A Tip About Flossing Sticks

I use flossing sticks for my kids' teeth - this saves me trying to fit my big fingers in their little mouths and enables me to floss between all teeth, not just the easily accessible front ones.

I tried a new brand recently and thought I'd pass on this tip for anyone interested in trying flossing sticks. I forget the name of the brand, and I won't bother going to check, because the key point has to do with the handle: if it's flat, it's easier to use.

The new brand I bought has round handles, and they're really hard to hold in place. They slide around in my fingers, especially once they're slippery from being wet. The flat handled sticks are much easier to grip.

From now on, I'll only buy the flat handled kind...

It's really hard to try and floss my toddler teeth. I'll have to try those.

They really help... I'd pretty much given up with the regular string, and my dentist suggested the sticks. Now we floss every night, and it all goes well.

My husband just broke his shoulder and can't floss (normally) by himself. I just bought 2 bags of 100 flat handled floss sticks at Dollarama.
Man, I love that store!

Did any of you ever try the brytonpick? It's something new,you can get it on their website and several others...not sure for toddlers,but it works if your kids wear braces...

I've never heard of the brytonpick, but I'm going to write that down (thanks :-) because I think my kids will probably need braces...
