Give your friends or loved ones a unique and useful gift this holiday season: dental products. We’ve got some fun dental-related stocking stuffer ideas that you know will be put to good use. These are great last-minute gifts and even thoughtful gifts to ring in the New Year with a step toward dazzling oral health!

1. Mini Toothpastes

Know someone with a discerning palate? Give them a sampler of mini toothpaste tubes in a variety of flavors! You can give them an assortment of flavors from the same brand, or even the same flavor across different brands to compare. Mini toothpastes can help them find their favorite flavor and brand without feeling like they are wasting a whole tube if there is one they end up not liking.

2. Whitening Products

Who doesn’t want a gorgeous, glowing smile? If you know someone who has been wishing for a whiter smile this holiday season, you could get them whitening products such as whitening strips or whitening gels. But the best option that will deliver the dramatic results would be professional teeth whitening here at Amber Hills Dental. If your loved one is a new patient, make sure to tell them about our current new patient special for a free whitening after an exam, X-rays, and cleaning!

3. Electric Toothbrush

Electric toothbrushes are easy-to-use and are highly recommended by dentists everywhere. Although getting the right electric toothbrush may feel like a splurge, it is worth every penny when you think about how much the recipient may save in dental bills down the line! And you don't have to spend $100-200 to get a high-quality brush. For example, the Oral-B Pro 1000 electric toothbrush is a terrific brush with a built-in two minute timer and pressure sensor. You can find it for less than $40 at many big box stores!

4. Dental Floss

Dental floss is another practical stocking stuffer. Using string floss every day is an effective way to remove plaque and food particles from between your teeth. Floss picks are another useful tool. These make cleaning out those tight spaces in between your teeth easy, especially for someone who is constantly on-the-go or an avid traveler.

5. Healthy Snacks

Candy is a tasty stocking stuffer, but it’s not good for your teeth. Instead, give your loved ones tooth-friendly snacks like sugar-free chewing gum and protein-packed nuts.

How to Keep Your Own Smile Merry & Bright

This holiday season, don't forget to treat yourself with the gift of superb oral health. Brush your teeth twice a day, floss every day, drink plenty of water, and eat a nutritious diet so you can have a bright and beautiful smile. Our team here at Amber Hills Dental wishes you and your family a happy, healthy, and joyful end of 2018. We look forward to seeing you in 2019. Contact us today to schedule your biannual checkup.
