With the holiday season in full swing, many of us will be struggling to come up with great gift ideas for friends and family. With that in mind, why not consider their smiles? In today’s blog, we’re going to talk about a few fun gift ideas our Albuquerque, NM, patients could give to their loved ones to help them enjoy healthier and more beautiful smiles!
We have gift ideas that would make excellent stocking stuffers. For example, an electric toothbrush, a fun new toothpaste, or sweets that don’t harm our teeth, such as sugar-free gum. For kids, you can often find kits at stores that contain electric toothbrushes and other oral hygiene items bearing the visage of their favorite cartoon characters. You can offer a unique gift that also helps your loved ones enjoy bright and healthy smiles!
Christmas Treats to Beware
We know that many of our holiday favorites contain sugar, and enjoying these items in moderation isn’t a big deal. But too much sugary sweets leave behind sugar particles for bacteria to break down, a process that leads to plaque buildup and an increased risk of tooth decay. So, try to cut back on cookies, pie, sticky/chewy treats, and cakes. If you do enjoy one, then follow it with a glass of water to help cleanse your mouth (and don’t forget to floss that night).
Schedule a Visit
You can schedule a visit now or right after the holidays. We will perform a checkup to make sure you don’t have burgeoning oral health issues that require treatment. We also offer dental cleanings, which completely remove plaque buildup to safeguard your smile against tooth decay and gum disease in the New Year. If you have any questions, then contact our team today!
