Are you still shopping for the special people on your list? Well, don’t forget about their smiles! In today’s blog, your Albuquerque, NM, dentist looks at fun and smile healthy gift ideas, and offers a few tips to help protect your teeth and gums throughout the holiday season. Let’s help you and your loved ones enjoy optimal oral health now and throughout 2020!
A lot of great stocking stuffers can also be great for your smile. For example, a new electric toothbrush or water flosser for the adults in your life. For kids, you could purchase toothbrushes and toothpastes with their favorite cartoon or comic book characters on them, as well as age-appropriate electric toothbrushes and floss picks in fun shapes and colors. Also, keep in mind that chewy candies and other popular Christmas favorites could lead to a greater risk of cavities. Instead of candy, what about fresh fruit, sugar-free gum, or fun items that aren’t candies or foods at all. Children could also receive small toys, crayons, or other similar items in lieu of sweets.
We often see patients this time of year looking to brighten their smiles before the holidays or at least before the New Year starts. You can purchase approved whitening kits from our office and other dentists, as well as gift certificates for in-office treatments. In fact, you could also give yourself the gift of a brighter smile with our professional teeth whitening options. Remember to talk to our team before selecting a teeth whitening option, as some store-bought systems could be linked to greater sensitivity and less-than-stellar results.
Now that you’re gearing up for the holidays, be sure to think about your smile. Remember to balance your sugary and sugary holiday favorites with smile healthy options, such as fruit, vegetables, and water. Take time after your meal to floss, and be sure you’re also brushing and flossing daily as recommended to help remove food particles, control plaque buildup, and limit the risk of cavities and gingivitis. Remember, you can also contact our team to schedule a checkup and cleaning visits before the holidays or after, so we can monitor your smile and help you start 2020 with bright, clean smiles. If you have any questions or if you would like to schedule a consultation, then contact our team today to learn more.
