The holiday season is upon us and while you’re out doing your shopping, it’s important to pick up gifts that are not only fun for your kids but good for them too! Next time you’re buying your holiday gifts, grab these stocking stuffers that are dentist approved and teach  your kids how healthy teeth can be a fun part of Christmas.
A new toothbrush
Everyone needs a toothbrush–so why not make it fun? Stuff your child’s stocking with a glittery one for the holidays, or opt for their favorite character. Giving them a toothbrush that they like will make them more likely to want to brush.
A sports mouthguard
If your child is involved in sports, you know how important protecting their teeth is. Unfortunately lots of kids hit the ball and run around on the field without one, putting their mouth at risk. Getting them a new mouthguard for Christmas will let them know just how important it is to wear one.
A tooth timer
Since it’s important to brush for two minutes, two times a day, getting your child a tooth timer will ensure they never skimp out on seconds.
Flavored floss
How does flossing with grape sound? Delicious, right? Gifting your child with flavored flossers will make taking care of their teeth seem extra delicious.
These dentist-approved stocking stuffers will ensure that you give your child the greatest gift of all this holiday season–the gift of good oral hygiene. Don’t forget to couple that with a trip to the dentist to ensure they achieve the highest level of oral care.
