GumChucks Can Help Indianapolis Children (And Adults) Floss
Is getting your child to brush and floss each night like, well, pulling teeth? Why not add some ninja moves to your child’s bedtime routine?
Because normal dental floss is sometimes harder for children to use, Dr. Behner is excited to offer an exciting new way to floss: GumChucks. GumChucks make oral health less of a chore and more fun for both kids and adults.
Most people know that daily tooth brushing helps prevent plaque and tooth decay. However, flossing is an equally important step towards maintaining gum health and good dental hygiene. With this creative oral health solution, you and your children will look forward to flossing.
How Do GumChucks Work?
GumChucks are two small reusable plastic handles with a piece of floss connecting the two tips, making them both a tool and a toy. Patients use the floss and then dispose of the floss tips when finished. GumChucks are built to easily attach a fresh piece of floss for each use. Replacement floss tip packages are available.
Benefits of GumChucks Vs. Traditional Floss or Flossing Picks
There are a number of notable benefits to using this revolutionary dental floss. With the style and design of the GumChucks, it is easier to maintain proper tension as well as the dentist-recommended ‘C’ shape around the tooth while you floss.
This innovative product:
- Promotes oral health
- Prevents the pain of floss wrapped fingers
- Is more sanitary than normal floss as it keeps fingers out of your mouth
- Is easier and faster to use than standard dental floss
- Makes your back teeth more accessible, which is helpful not only for children, but also anyone with limited dexterity
In addition to being fun and easy to use, GumChucks also come in a variety of eye-catching designs, featuring cartoon characters such as Plaque Man and Ninjerella. With accompanying trading cards and even a downloadable game app featuring GumChucks characters, children can get excited about fighting plaque and develop good oral health habits that will benefit them throughout their life.
