Grand Rapids, Mich., USA – Instilling healthy oral hygiene habits at an early age is critical, and Plackers® is helping parents do just that in a fun way with its new Dual Grip Fruit Smoothie Swirl Kids’ Flossers, designed with a unique dual grip handle making them easy for kids of all ages to use and allowing parents to assist.
Flossing regularly removes plaque and food from areas between the teeth that can’t be reached by brushing alone. Using Plackers flossers can reduce tooth decay and promote healthier gums.
The new, brightly coloured flossers are designed with an angled head, allowing kids and parents to easily reach all teeth. Plackers’ Hi-Tech® floss is engineered not to stretch, shred or break, and includes fluoride to promote strong teeth and reduce tooth decay. The kid-friendly fruit smoothie flavour is sure to be a hit and helps make flossing a fun – and tasty – task.
“Dentists recommend as soon as a child has two teeth that are touching, parents should help them begin a daily flossing routine,” said Greg McCormick, Senior Vice President of Global Innovation and Technology for Plackers’ parent company, Ranir. “Plackers new Kids’ Flossers were designed specifically with parents and children in mind to offer an easy, fun and flavourful way to teach kids about flossing and healthy dental care habits. If parents teach their kids healthy habits when they’re young, they will be more likely to carry on those habits throughout their lives.”
Plackers enhances the overall flossing experience for kids with its new Flosser Friend™. The adorable monkey-shaped flosser holder is meant to amp up the fun factor and help kids look forward to flossing. Not only is the flosser holder a cute way to store kids’ flossers and keep them close at hand, its flip-up cover design allows kids to easily access their flossers. The Flosser Friend is easy to open and clean, and comes pre-packaged with 30 dual grip kids’ flossers.
