The holidays are finally here! If you’re a family who puts up stockings, we have some fun stocking stuffers for you to mix things up from your standard fare. Of course, as dental professionals, we couldn’t help but suggest stocking stuffers that all have a dental twist. After all, receiving a present and having something that encourages good oral care is a win-win!
Mint may be the most popular toothpaste flavor, but it’s definitely not the only one out here. There’s quite the assortment of flavors, from refreshing ones like cinnamon, orange, and ginger, to crazier ones like cupcake, bacon, and chocolate.
If you’re stuffing the stocking of a child, you may have already thought about getting them a storybook. So why not get one that can help them develop healthy habits? There are tons of interesting books out there designed around teaching kids how to take care of their teeth and why it’s important.
A toothbrush cover or case is a practical gift idea for someone who frequently travels. It’s an excellent way to make sure their toothbrush stays clean while it’s packed away somewhere away from home, whether that’s a foreign country or a friend’s sleepover. There are lots of fun colors and designs that your recipient is sure to love.
Sugar-free chewing gum is always handy to have, and it’s the perfect size to slip into a stocking. Be sure any gum you choose is sugar-free so it won’t harm your recipient’s dental health. In fact, sugar-free gum is good for oral health! It will help freshen their breath, remove food particles, and stimulate the production of saliva for healthy and strong teeth.
If you want to include more dental products as stocking stuffers but aren’t quite sure which brands are the best choice, contact our team at Heritage Dental. We can give you our professional recommendations for things like electric toothbrushes and floss, all based on your specific dental needs.
