Looking for last minute Christmas gifts? Santa loves to stuff stockings with lots of smile making treats! Here’s a gift list we put together that can keep everyone on your list maintain that beautiful, healthy smile.
1. Sonicare Toothbrush – Dr. Shacklelford and his staff all recommend this toothbrush to keep teeth sparkling plus improve your gum health in just two weeks. Sonicare brushes come with advanced brush head technology that goes beyond traditional cleaning to deliver exceptional plaque removal and improved gum health. Get a two pack at Costco for $139.00 and you can have 2 stocking gifts! Best Buy carries a number of models and has on sale starting at $39.00 each – a $30.00 savings!
2. Teeth Whitening – Dentistry of Johns Creek offers a “take home” whitening kit that has custom-fit trays that keep the whitening solution on the surface of the tooth, and allow only a slight exposure of the solution to the sensitive gingival area. $350 at Dentistry of Johns Creek.
3. Xylitol-infused Chewing Gum – Sure, everyone enjoys holiday sweets but this is a sweet treat that can also improve children’s oral health. Chewing sugar-free gum after a meal stimulates saliva to buffer the acid and helps dislodge food particles from the mouth. Gum containing the natural sweetener, Xylitol, is a particularly good option since studies have shown that consistent exposure to Xylitol can help prevent tooth decay.
4. Unusual Flavored Toothpaste – Better hurry if you want to stuff the stockings with a cupcake or bacon flavored toothpaste! You can find on Amazon. They even offer Crayola SQUEEZE-A-COLOR Toothpaste. What kid (or even adult) wouldn’t enjoy brushing with some different flavors? Caution before buying, make sure they contain fluoride to fight tooth decay.
5. Flavored Floss – No oral hygiene routine is complete without flossing after brushing. You can find this through Amazon as well. Choose from bacon, cupcake and even breakfast flavors that contain a 3 pack consisting of coffee, pancake and bacon flavors. For your favorite couple, give “His & Hers” Dental floss. For the teenage girls on your list, there’s Justin Bieber Mint floss! Who would have ever thought?!
