A beautiful smile is important to most everyone. Why not make a friend or family member feel special by giving a gift that is just for them?
Here are five great gifts to help your loved ones keep their teeth healthy and looking great!
1. Electric toothbrush
A quality electric toothbrush is more effective at removing plaque and can help keep those hard to reach places like back molars and behind teeth cleaner than a standard tooth brush. An electric toothbrush can also help those with limited mobility or older family members brush more effectively.
2. Water flosser (also known as a Water Pik)
Flossing is a key part of a healthy dental-care routine; however, if you have braces, crowns, bridges or other dental work, it can be difficult to floss effectively. A water flosser help ensure your loved one flosses every day.
3. Dental exam gift certificate
Routine teeth cleanings and dental exams are a key part of keeping your smile heathy and beautiful. For friends and family who may not have dental insurance, gifting a dental exam is a thoughtful way to say you care!
4. Sugar-free gum
According to the American Dental Association, chewing gum keeps your mouth moist which helps wash away acids that may lead to tooth decay. Chewing sugar-free gum is a great way to freshen breath and keep your teeth a little cleaner until you can brush again.
5. Teeth whitening kits or treatments
Who doesn’t want whiter teeth? Your dentist offers several ways to whiten teeth including in-office treatments and kits that you can do at home. In office whitening offers quicker results, but professional in-home whitening kits can be effective over time and are faster than whitening toothpastes and over-the-counter whiteners.
Giving the gifts that help keep teeth healthy and beautiful is a wonderful way to say you care!
