Are you dreaming of a White Christmas for your loved one’s smile? Tired of your family’s teeth ending up on the Naughty List? Do you want to stuff something healthy in their stockings this year? Need help thinking of a gift that’s thoughtful AND helpful? We’d be happy to help you make that Christmas miracle come true with oral hygiene.
At Imagine Dental, we know that giving someone the gift of great oral hygiene is one of the best things you could give anyone. It’s the kind of gift that pays off year after year. Strong healthy teeth and a luminous smile aren’t just beautiful to look at, they offer physical and psychological benefits as well. In this season of sugary sweets and teeth-corroding candy, show the people you love that you care about them by giving them a gift that will make their smile shine even brighter.
It might not sound like a great gift, but toothbrushes are an essential item to have around the house. If your loved ones use a manual toothbrush, get them a handful or a dozen quality brushes so they’ll have enough brushes to last them throughout the year. If they prefer an electric toothbrush, get them a back up brush in case their old one breaks down or get a carrying case so they have something hygienic and convenient to store their brush in.
Another option is to stuff their stockings with Wisps. This is a great gift for the go-getters, frequent flyers and travelers you know. Wisps are disposable brushes that come with a cleaning bead of solution, so you don’t need water or toothpaste to get your teeth clean while using a Wisp.
At-home whitening kits
Candy canes and gingerbread houses are all well and good, but too many of them could make your teeth look as dark as reindeer hooves. A whiter cleaner smile isn’t just good for your health, it helps make a strong impression and can boost your self-esteem. Give your loved ones a gift that will make them stand out the right way by giving them an at-home whitening kit. Soon their teeth will be as white as freshly fallen snow.
It’s not an easy thing to say, but sometimes you have to let the people you care about know that their breath ain’t smelling so fresh. It’s not easy to hear, but it’s needed advice. And one way to do it gently and with care is to offer them mints, breath strips and mouthwash during the holidays. If you’re worried about their reaction, say it’s from Santa and let good ol’ Saint Nick take the heat.
Sugar free gum
Do your kids have a sweet tooth? Get them a box full of sweet sugar free gum. It’s a safe alternative to those sweet treats that will erode their teeth. Sugar free gum also stimulates the production of saliva, which helps keeps our mouths clean.
Gift a dental visit
If you have someone who needs to see the dentist, offer to pick up the tab for their first visit. Depending on what they’re going in for and whether or not their insurance will cover it, this could cost you a pretty penny. But nothing tells someone you care about their oral health like saying “I got you” and taking them to the dentist, especially if they’re struggling financially and that’s the only reason why they haven’t gone to the dentists yet.
