‘Tis the Season for Mouth Healthy Gifts!

Stockings are the perfect opportunity to sneak in that practical gift for a child or teenager and even impress your partner or friend with something thoughtful that lasts long after the Christmas tree comes down.

Include some of these items to see their faces – and smiles! – light up on Christmas morning (we have the first two available for purchase at Lehigh Valley Smile Designs):

Zoom Whitening Pen: Two applications a day will keep your smile looking great! Easy to use and can be taken anywhere.It requires no waiting after application.

UV Toothbrush Sanitizer: Zapi Luxe wobbles but the germs fall down.  This cute item kills 99.9% of germs and bacteria and sanitizes in just seven minutes.It has an automatic shut-off.

Xylitol-infused Chewing Gum: 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.

Flavored Toothpaste: Uniquely-flavored toothpaste can provide a change of pace and get kids excited again about the prospect of brushing their teeth. Always make sure the toothpaste contains fluoride to fight tooth decay.

Flavored Floss and Mouthwash: Floss is normally pretty plain, but it doesn't have to be. Like toothpaste, there are many flavors to choose from like banana and cinnamon-flavored options for kids to enjoy.

Unique Toothbrush: Focus on getting the right toothbrush for the right family member for the best results - soft bristles for your toddler, favorite characters for school-aged kids and fun designs for picky teens should do the trick. There are even "smart" toothbrushes that light up or play tunes to let kids know how long they need to brush.

Fun Toothbrush Holder: Another way to get children brushing is by stuffing the stocking with fun oral health gifts like robot, tree or animal-shaped toothbrush holders that stick to walls. Kids like the characters and the holder provides a valuable and sanitary storage spot for their toothbrushes and toothpaste.

Sports Mouthguard: The quality of the mouthguard should be the primary concern, but there are plenty of fun colors and designs available to coordinate with a favorite team or uniform of any color.

By gifting them with dental-conscious stocking stuffers, you can ensure a new year of healthy smiles to come.
