Top 5 Oral Hygiene Gifts to Improve Your Health

Oral Hygiene Gifts

This year, why not break the mold and give the gift of oral hygiene to your loved ones? At Lawrence Chen DDS, we believe that dental hygiene gifts are thoughtful, unique, and useful. Check out these great dental gift ideas to give to your family and friends!

1. Electric toothbrush

An electric toothbrush is one of the most practical dental gifts. You know it will be used at least twice a day! Good electric toothbrushes are far more effective than ordinary, manual versions. They offer high-level cleaning power that can also brighten teeth and improve overall gum health. Electric toothbrushes come in various styles and options, including some that come with all the bells and whistles. Many also provide a variety of brush-heads to choose from so you can customize your brush.

2. Tooth timer

If you have friends or family members who have difficulty brushing long enough, especially kids, consider a pint-sized timer for their bathroom. Cleaning for two full minutes can seem like a long time, and when we count in our heads, we tend to go too fast. A timer can help to ensure that brushing is thorough.

3. Toothpaste tablets

Toothpaste tablets are a great alternative to using a tube of toothpaste, especially if you're sharing one tube with the whole family. They are easy to use and taste and perform just like regular toothpaste. One of the best characteristics of tablets is that they prevent cross-contamination, which is especially important during the current COVID-19 pandemic.

4. Dental travel kit

A dental kit can make a fantastic gift for those who travel often. These kits can include travel-size toothbrushes and toothpaste, mouthwash, dental floss, and any other useful oral hygiene tools.

5. Stocking stuffers

Stockings are a great place to put smaller oral hygiene gifts. Here are a few quick suggestions:

  • Toothbrush holder: Get children excited about brushing, with an animal-shaped toothbrush holder. For adults, consider their interests and give a themed toothbrush holder.
  • Fun dental floss:Flossing is an essential step in your oral health routine because it helps eliminate plaque and prevent gum disease and periodontitis. But standard dental floss can be boring. Spice things up by gifting floss with a fun flavor, like bubblegum or bacon. There's also floss for those who want whitening or soothing effects.
  • Sugar-free gum or mints:Give your loved one a minty mouth without hurting their teeth.

Gift yourself with optimal dental hygiene

The holiday season is traditionally full of sugary foods. To get through it with your dental health intact, Dr. Lawrence Chen, a dentist with over 25 years of experience, recommends the following oral care tips:

  • Brush your teeth more regularly. Brushing before breakfast helps you get your teeth as clean as possible before being exposed to sugar or acid.
  • Spit out your toothpaste rather than rinsing your mouth with water. By doing this, the benefits of toothpaste remain long after the brushing.
  • Chew sugar-free gum instead of snacking on Christmas treats. When you get the urge to eat something sweet or sticky, it helps to turn to sugar-free gum instead. Gum also encourages saliva production, which helps to keep acid off your teeth.
  • Use a straw. Drinking through a straw allows you to enjoy holiday drinks while sparing your teeth the sugar.

Maintaining your teeth and practicing general dental health is an important part of keeping your whole body healthy. When you don’t keep up on your dental health, it can lead to periodontal disease, bone loss, and (of course) bad breath. We offer periodontal maintenance exams—a fancy term for a dental exam—and pediatric dental exams. We’ll make sure your teeth are nice and clean, as well as take x-rays to make sure there aren’t any issues under the enamel. For children, it is also important to use fluoride treatments to strengthen their teeth while they are still growing and learning good brushing habits.
