Your teeth work hard for you all year long, don’t you think that Christmas is the time to treat them to a gift? There are also some great ideas if you want to treat a loved one to healthier teeth this year. Show your love by giving the gift of healthy teeth and gums.
There are many brands of electric toothbrushes available and many are as good as the next. There are many different models available today so there is something for every member of the family.
If you know someone that wants to have their teeth whitened, why not send them for professional whitening treatments. There are different options based on needs and budget, just speak with your dentist about the best choices.
Probiotics aren’t just important for gut health; they have an important role in dental health as well. Oral probiotics have been shown to increase the health of biofilm found in the mouth. This creates a well-balanced environment to keep bacteria at bay.
Probiotics won’t fix poor dental health but are a great supplement for people who already practice good oral hygiene. Give your dentist a call for a recommendation on which supplements to purchase.
Travel Toiletry Bag
If you or someone you know travel often, a travel-size toothbrush and toothpaste make for a nice gift. Otherwise, a travel toiletry bag gives them a nice way to take their full-size dental equipment on the go. Many of these bags offer separate compartments and unique patterns to suit anyone’s taste.
Travel Dental Hygiene Kit
A full kit can also make a nice gift idea for the traveler. Normally these kits will include a travel-size toothbrush, toothpaste, dental floss and mouthwash. You can find various styles and some are budget friendly.
The nice thing about these kits is that they generally come in plastic zip pouches so there is never a concern over leakage in the luggage. Travel kits make for a nice stocking stuffer and are sure to be appreciated by anyone planning to travel.
During this time of year, remember your teeth and the dental health of your loved ones. Serve healthy foods and share tooth-friendly gifts with your family. Don’t forget to also schedule a bi-annual checkup if you haven’t seen the dentist in a while.
