Holiday Presents for Better Oral Health

Child opening a present

While it’s unlikely that your children included ‘good oral health’ on their holiday wish list this year, it’s one of the most important gifts you can give them! As a parent, it’s fun to give your child gifts that they want, but it’s also important to give them gifts that they need. Some oral hygiene items can be fun stocking stuffers or gifts!

Holiday Gifts for Healthy Teeth

Below are a few holiday gift ideas that can help improve your family’s oral health and hygiene:

  • Electric Toothbrush – Electric toothbrushes are great for everyone, but especially for kids who may have trouble brushing thoroughly. You can get electric brushes featuring your child’s favorite Disney princess, TV character, or superhero.
  • Mouth Guard – Mouth guards are used during physical activities and sports to cushion blows to the face and prevent cuts and lacerations. The CDC has reported that 3 million teeth are lost every year at youth sporting events. Mouthguards can make a great stocking stuffer for the sporty kids in your house!
  • Fun Toothpaste – Your kids might get bored with the minty flavor of toothpaste. Luckily there is no shortage of fun toothpaste flavors that kids will get a kick out of! These flavors include chocolate, cupcake, and even bacon! As long as the toothpaste has the ADA seal of approval, it will be effective in cleaning your child’s teeth.
  • Dental Health Books – Lastly, there are plenty of educational books for kids about visiting the dentist. These books can help children overcome fears or anxieties about visiting our office by knowing what to expect beforehand.

Winter break is a great time to make dental appointments for the whole family! You can all get checkups and cleanings without having to miss work or school! To make your appointments today, please contact Meadows Family Dentistry located here in Castle Rock, Colorado!

From all of us at Meadows Family Dentistry, we want to wish you a healthy and happy holiday season!
