During the holidays, your loved ones will probably get their fill of candy and sweets, so instead of adding to the problem, consider giving out teeth-friendly holiday gifts instead. The recipient will appreciate the thought and will be on their way to having cleaner and whiter teeth for the New Year.
Musical Toothbrush If you are looking for a mouth-healthy gift for the kids in your life, a musical toothbrush can be a great option. The Tooth Tunes toothbrush offered by Arm and Hammer is a great pick, as it will play two minutes of music so that you know exactly how long you need to brush. This is a great way to get your kids excited about brushing.
Kids' Oral Health Kits
Kids need to be concerned about proper oral hygiene, too, so consider purchasing an oral care kit for a gift this year. There is no better time to promote good dental hygiene than the holidays.
This holiday season, upgrade a loved one's toothbrush with an electric option. The recipient will love that they can keep their teeth cleaner than ever, and they'll have a cool new gadget to learn how to use.
Fruit Basket Do you have a tendency to give out boxes of chocolate during the holidays? This year, change things up by offering a fruit basket. Crunchy fruits like apples are especially good additions, because the high fiber content will promote the flow of saliva while removing plaque.
Teeth Whitening Strips
If you have a family member or friend who is always talking about wanting a whiter smile, consider stuffing teeth whitening strips in their stocking. While nothing will compare to the professional whitening services you can get at your dental office, these at-home systems can make a good effort at whitening the teeth.
Please contact us if you have any questions about teeth-friendly holiday gifts.
