Need a Last Minute Present? Give the Gift of Oral Health

Are you stuck on a gift idea for that special someone? Why not give the gift of oral health?

Often, the last thing that we would do for ourselves is upgrade our own dental tools for brushing and flossing. That’s exactly why new dental technology makes the perfect gift for the holidays!

Here are our top suggestions to give the gift of oral health:

Electric toothbrush. Although both electric and manual toothbrushes are effective at cleaning teeth, using an electric brush can make it easier to brush for the recommended 2 minutes as well as get at those hard-to-reach areas around the molars. Anyone with dexterity problems, including children, the elder and people with disabilities, or those who have braces or other dental appliances, may find an electric toothbrush easier to use.

Water flosser. A water flosser is a water irrigator that can supplement traditional flossing. The device shoots a thin stream of water which, when directed between the teeth and at the gumline, can remove harmful food particles and plaque. Using a water flosser can really help clean around braces as well as areas where there are gaps in the teeth.

Teeth whitening. Treat your loved one to professional dental teeth whitening sessions to brighten a smile. Our in-office treatments are the quickest way to whiten the teeth and, while the process will take several visits, you’ll see great results in just one treatment.

Oral care travel kit. Tuck a few new dental care tools into a colorful zippered pouch for your favorite traveler. Look for a travel-friendly electric toothbrush along with small tubes of toothpastes and bottles of mouthwash. Add some dental floss and you’re ready to head out on that vacation.
