Mother’s Day is just a few days away, and if you’re a procrastinator, the panic is probably setting in.
Not only does your mother deserve something special, but if you’re married with children, your wife deserves to feel cherished, as well.
Maybe last year’s gift card seemed a bit predictable, and you’re looking for something more thoughtful.
If you’re struggling to come up with an idea, perhaps the best gift you could give is the gift of a beautiful and healthy smile!
Not only can complications such as gum disease increase Mom’s chances of cardiovascular disease, stroke, and even cancer, having stains, chips, or crooked teeth can affect self-esteem.
For Moms who want to feel beautiful and be healthy, Warner Lakes Dental suggests these dental Mother’s Day gifts.
#1 Enjoy a healthy and delicious meal
One Mother’s Day tradition is to take Mom out for a meal. But restaurant meals, from early breakfast to late dinner, can be stuffed with sugars, acids, dark foods, and other things that can attack teeth and dental health.
Here’s what to look for to keep Mom’s health safe while having a delicious meal:
If you’re taking Mom to a special Mother’s Day brunch, be sure to include foods like nutrient-rich salmon with omega-3 fatty acid and teeth-whitening strawberries to battle gum disease.
For drinks, consider a cup of black or green tea as they help inhibit the growth of harmful oral bacteria.
Vitamin C is critical for healthy teeth and gums, and it is always wise to eat fruits and vegetables with vitamins A, B2, and B12.
Perhaps you could put together a gift-basket of dental-healthy snack foods. Almonds are a great source of calcium, delicious, and low in sugar.
Cheese and yogurt are full of calcium, casein, and phosphorus, which protect tooth enamel.
For dinner, choose ingredients like coconut oil, which has antibacterial effects; Shiitake mushrooms which contain lentinan to inhibit bacterial growth; cheese for calcium to fight periodontal disease and keeps your jawbone strong, and spinach which is high in protein and phosphorous, a vital mineral for improving the strength of your jaw and teeth.
#2 The gift of youthful appearance!
As time goes by, more than our smiles get a bit worn. And a great smile needs to be framed by a great face.
If your Mom thinks she is looking a bit older and tired, Warner Lakes Dental can help!
Botox is the trade name for Botulinum Toxin type A (BTx-A), a purified natural protein injected into the skin to relax facial muscles.
Dermal fillers fill out areas on your face that suffer from volume loss and wrinkles. The result is a significantly fuller look and a younger looking appearance.
Dermal fillers can also be used for lip augmentation and shaping facial, neck, and hand contours.
#3 Dark chocolates instead of other candies
If you’re going to get candies for your Mom, make sure they are dark chocolates.
The cocoa can help prevent cavities, as long as it’s eaten in moderation, and the bean contains flavonoids and tannins, which also come with health benefits.
#4 Toothbrush Sanitiser
Protect your Mom from the nasty bacteria that could be lurking on the tip of her toothbrush.
Sanitisers come with changeable liners to fit most toothbrushes – electric and manual, and can be USB-rechargeable or plugged into the wall.
#5 Give the gift of white teeth!
