Top 7 Oral Hygiene Gift Ideas for Holidays from Warner Lakes Dental It’s holiday and gift-giving time again, and most of us are racing around to get everything done.

And one important task of the season is buying great presents for friends and family.

And we all know how difficult gift-giving can be – It’s often difficult to buy a present that is perfect for those you care about.

But a dental hygiene gift might be just right for many on your list.

Dental hygiene based gifts are practical, good for health, something many people might not purchase for themselves, and almost sure to be used daily.

With that in mind, Warner Lakes Dental Brisbane suggests you consider the following gifts and stocking stuffers during this holiday season.

#1. Electric toothbrush. This is probably the most practical and appropriate dental gift. And, you can be pretty sure it will be used – probably at least twice a day!

Electric toothbrushes offer high-level cleaning power that can be far more effective, they brighten teeth, and they improve your overall gum health.

Electric toothbrushes come in a range of styles and options, including some that that come with bells and whistles including built-in timers and phone applications.

Many provide a variety of brush-heads to choose from so you can customise them. Electric toothbrushes are particularly great for the young and old, as they do a lot of the work themselves and don’t require perfect brushing technique.

#2. Water-flosser. If someone on your list has dental implants, bridgework, traditional braces, or just plain doesn’t enjoy the act of dental flossing they would likely benefit from the gift of a water-flosser.

Water flossers use jets to gently spray water between the teeth and onto the gums. Water-flossers work along the same lines as traditional floss, cleaning between the teeth to help remove plaque and trapped food from hard-to-reach areas.

Water flossers can be more comfortable and easier to use than standard floss for people with braces or dental restorations such as dental bridges. As with electric toothbrushes, they are good for young and old alike, and can even be used in the shower!

#3. Sports mouthguard. Is one of your friends or family an athlete? Unfortunately, a lot of athletes play sports without adequately protecting their teeth.

If you have a someone on your list who plays an active sport, consider getting them a mouthguard for Christmas. Even if they already have a mouthguard, a fun new colour or style can be an upgrade, and for youngsters with growing bones, new mouthguards are needed regularly.

#4. Travel dental kit. Travelling can make it difficult to maintain oral health. Ease that burden on your world explorer or road warrior with a dental travel kit!

You can make one yourself, or purchase one that is premade. For a DIY kit, keep it simple: Take a reusable, water-resistant bag, add travel-sized toothpaste and mouthwash, a travel toothbrush, floss and floss picks, sugar-free gum, and a small mirror. If you buy a premade travel kit you have a wide range of options and price points.

#5. The gift of a whiter smile. At Warner Lakes Dental, we offer Philips Zoom Teeth Whitening System as well as a take-home kit. Our teeth whitening is a safe, non-invasive, and simple process that lightens the colour of teeth and brightens dull smiles.

Zoom Whitening whitens your teeth just like regular teeth whitening. It removes stains that cannot be removed by regular whitening. The bleaching gel used in the process is stronger, thereby removing more stains on your teeth.

Teeth can brighten up to eight shades and the results last longer too!

#6. Coconut floss. Nobody really likes flossing, but how do you make it more pleasant? Try coconut based floss. Coconut floss has hundreds of filaments that scrub away plaque and debris to leave your gums cleaner. If you know someone who loves coconut, for its flavour or health benefits, they’ll love coconut floss and keep their gums healthier!

#7. Floss as a stocking stuffer. Brushing alone is not capable of getting rid of germs, bacteria, and food debris from inaccessible sections of the teeth.

That is just where dental floss becomes important. There are different types of dental floss to consider including- flavoured or unflavored, regular or wide, and waxed or unwaxed.

If you know someone who doesn’t enjoy flossing, try giving them colourful floss with an interesting flavour. They’ll thank you for it when they save money at their dental appointments.
