If you want to give your loved one a unique birthday, Christmas, or anniversary gift this year, consider something that will promote good oral health. We call all use help once in a while in remembering the importance of good oral health, and one of these gifts can do just that. These are a few great options.
Nobody really enjoys flossing, and it is one step in the dental hygiene routine that many people skip. Gifting someone some dental floss is a good way to remind them of the importance of flossing. There are many varieties available, and you can choose an interesting flavor that will make the process of flossing more fun for the recipient.
An Electric Toothbrush
Give the gadget lover in your family a unique gift in the form of an electric or battery powered toothbrush. Depending on the brand, these brushes may play music and offer unique settings that can improve the brushing experience. A quick Google search can show you the many options available.
Do you have a gum lover in your inner circle? If so, sugar free gum will be a gift that they enjoy without worry about their teeth. Acids in the mouth can devastate the enamel, but chewing on sugar free gum can help by stimulating the production of saliva. Make sure you purchase gum that contains Xylitol, an artificial sweetener that has been proven to reduce cavities.
While a toothbrush and floss are the main cleaning aids that you'll need for a healthy mouth, some people like special picks to keep their mouths clean. These may be useful to people who find it hard to use traditional floss.
In addition to one of these great oral hygiene gifts, encourage your loved ones to visit our office every six months for a checkup. Call us today to learn more.
