WE’VE SAID IT TIME AND TIME AGAIN… flossing is essential for a healthy mouth! But it’s not always the most enjoyable task of the day, especially for kids. If you’re looking for an easier way to help your kids floss–and have fun while they’re at it–we’ve got just the product for you!
GumChucks® Make Flossing Easy And Fun
GumChucks are a flossing system that’s designed to not only make flossing easier for your kids, but also help them floss correctly. And when your floss looks like miniature nunchucks, there’s no doubt some fun will ensue!
Here’s why we love GumChucks:
- Functional design promotes correct “C” shape flossing technique as recommended by the American Dental Association
- The two-handled system makes flossing easy for kids with limited dexterity
- Long handles make for a more sanitary flossing experience–no need for hands in the mouth
- No more pain from floss-wrapped fingers
- Creative designs, colors and characters makes flossing more fun for kids
Tooth decay is the most common chronic disease in children, so when a product comes along that gets kids excited about their oral health, we get excited too!
Have Braces? No Problem!
Flossing is an especially difficult task for orthodontic patients. That’s why the makers of GumChucks have created a product called ORTHOgami that makes flossing practically effortless for braces wearers!
ORTHOgami functions much the same as GumChucks, with one exception: the disposable flossing tips have a flexible hook on one end, allowing those with braces to floss under the archwire and between brackets. No more need for those time-consuming floss threaders; with ORTHOgami, flossing is quick and easy!
(NOTE TO OUR CLIENTS: Customize your blog post by answering some questions here. For example: Why else do you recommend ORTHOgami to your patients? What have your patients’ reactions been to using them? Has it promoted easier and more frequent flossing among your patients? Are there any advantages to buying this product from your practice such as warranty, current discounts, etc.?)
Get Flossing, Kids!
Just like you, we want your child to have a lifetime of happy, healthy smiles. The earlier children start looking forward to daily flossing, the better their future oral hygiene habits will be. And that’s the best part about GumChucks and ORTHOgami–they get kids flossing! So what are you waiting for? Get your kids some GumChucks or ORTHOgami today!
We love our patients! Thank you for supporting our practice.
