So, you’ve got a big job ahead of you! That’s right…Christmas is coming! The lights are out. The music is playing. Trees are up. You are suddenly craving hot chocolate. Everything feels a little happier, and even the cold weather doesn’t bother you. It must be the Christmas season.
We at Barganier and LeCroy DMD love Christmas and we want to remind you that dental care is a wonderful gift! What could be better than giving the gift of a brighter smile?
(Remember to try to keep a bright smile through the holidays!)
Great Stocking Stuffers!
We know you are probably thinking that dental gifts sound lame, but they are very thoughtful gifts!
Stockings are for stuffing, and toothbrushes and toothpaste make for great stuffers! Pay attention to what your children (old and young) enjoy using and pop them into their stockings.
Younger children love to get cool toothbrushes and wild toothpaste. It won’t be their favorite gift, but it will definitely be used and liked!
Older children appreciate these types of gifts much more. They understand the cost of the necessities in life (toilet paper, soap, laundry detergent) and they appreciate any little bit of help they get. Additionally, they can appreciate the thought behind you choosing their favorite brand of toothpaste or floss!
More Unique Dental Gifts
Sometimes, the stocking is just plain stuffed, but you can still put more dental themed presents under the tree! Let’s take a look at some of the more creative oral hygiene gifts to give:
- Electric Toothbrush: Electric toothbrushes can promote good oral hygiene in young children because…well, they are kind of fun! Additionally, they are great for preventing gingivitis, gum disease, cavities, and bad breath.
- Sugar-free gum: Do your children love to smack on some gum? Try giving them a pack of sugar-free gum! This is a great way to promote oral health without them even knowing. Gum encourages saliva production, which plays a major role in rinsing out your mouth.
- Water flosser- A water flosser is an electronic dental tool that pushes water out at a high speed. You simply point the water flosser in between each tooth and the water knocks out the plaque! Many children find water flossers to be fun (just be careful they don’t spray it around the whole bathroom!)
There you go – three more presents to put under the tree that will also help to provide a brighter smile.
