Posted on 12/04/2019 · Posted in Health Information from Affiliated Dentists, Information

Gift your friends and family healthy teeth this holiday season! Practical dental care gifts might not be an obvious holiday gift choice. But injecting a little fun into your loved ones’ oral hygiene routine will keep them smiling all year round. Read on for some fun gift ideas to add flare to their dental care.

Keep your family’s teeth healthy this holiday with gifts like

  • Electric toothbrushes
  • Water flossers
  • Toothbrush organizer and toothpaste dispenser
  • Fun-flavored toothpaste
  • Affiliated Dentists teeth whitening service

Electric Toothbrushes

Did you know that electric toothbrushes can make as many as fifty thousand brush strokes a minute? That kind of heavy lifting is perfect for those who need extra help keeping their teeth clean, especially the elderly, those with orthodontics, or children. If purchasing electric toothbrushes for children, look for models specially designed for them. Available in bright colors, these toothbrushes come complete with stickers and even apps to entertain children as they brush. Check to make sure that the toothbrush comes with a standard two-minute timer to ensure that teeth are brushed for the appropriate amount of time.

Water Flosser

Water flossers are another great holiday gift. Water flossers, or water picks, work by shooting a narrow stream of water between the teeth to remove trapped food debris and plaque. Proven to reduce gingivitis, a water flosser is an especially good gift for people with braces, crowns, or bridges that can be difficult to clean with string floss.

Wall-Mounted Toothbrush Organization System

There are few worse sights than that of a messy toothbrush drawer! Gobs of hardened toothpaste and a heap of jumbled toothbrushes are both awful to look at and can contribute to the spread of germs. Give your family—and yourself—the gift of a tidy bathroom with a wall-mounted toothbrush organization system. Hang family toothbrushes alongside a toothpaste dispenser and free up precious counter space. Kids will enjoy using the dispenser, which will serve up a suitable amount of toothpaste each time. No more messy toothpaste mishaps!

Fun-Flavored Toothpaste

Fruit Fusion, Blue Raspberry, Orange Mango, Watermelon! Surprise your loved ones with outside-the-box toothpaste flavors. Look for ADA-approved brands and be sure that the toothpaste includes fluoride, a naturally occurring mineral that strengthens enamel and prevents tooth decay.

Affiliated Dentists Teeth Whitening Service

If someone you love is unhappy with the color of their teeth, they will appreciate the gift of teeth whitening. Affiliated Dentists offers two types of teeth whitening services: tray whitening and same-day, in-office whitening called Zoom. During tray whitening, an impression is taken and a custom tray is made for the patient. A supply of whitening gel is then given to the patient who wears the tray for a few hours each day for a period of time until an acceptable result is achieved. Maximum whitening can be attained in only ten to fourteen days. Results may be seen after just the first application. Zoom, the same-day, in-office teeth whitening service, bleaches teeth a few shades whiter within an hour. Be sure to schedule a free consult to see if you might be a good candidate for Zoom.
