Dental Gifts For the Holidays!

Dental Gifts For the Holidays!

Mini Dental Gifts

The holidays are here, and we know many of our patients are scrambling to get their gift lists together. After all, gift giving is a difficult thing: it's hard to guess someone's preferences, and it seems like all too many gifts end up stored in a closet somewhere a few months down the line. But this year, what if you gave some small gifts to help your loved ones keep their teeth clean?

Tiny Gifts for Dental Health

Most of us tend to overeat a little during the holidays, and often, those foods are acidic, sugary, or full of carbs – all things that spell bad news for teeth. Instead of adding more candy into the mix, why not try giving some of these small gifts during the holidays. They're small enough to fit into a stocking or party favor bag, and they'll help the recipient keep their smile healthy and beautiful, which is definitely something to be grateful for:


  • Floss: It's crucial for dental health, and we could all use a little extra.

  • Flossers: They're useful in any situation and great for counteracting the effect of holiday candy.

  • Toothpaste: Giving someone a brand they don't usually use – say, Tom's of Maine – might open new doors for their dental health.

  • Travel Toothbrushes: Mini or fold-up travel toothbrushes are useful to have, but few people would think to go out and get one.

  • Tongue Scrapers: Few people actually own a tongue scraper, but it's a great way to protect the health of your tongue and prevent bad breath.
