4 Tooth-Friendly Stocking Stuffers

christmas-StockingsYou’ve been decking the halls and donning your gay apparel, but chances are you’ve saved the stocking stuffers for last. It’s not too late to make the selection count! Here are four dentist-approved recommendations for last-minute shoppers looking to brighten the kids’ smiles:

1. Electric Toothbrush. Dentists themselves use these nifty devices, which can gently and effectively clean hard-to-reach areas. An electric toothbrush is just the right size for a stocking, but may cost more than the average stocking stuffer at around $50-$100. Two electric toothbrush brands we recommend most are Sonicare and Oral B.

2. Xylitol Gum. Here are some fun facts about Xylitol gum to “chew” on: Xylitol use can reduce cavities by up to 70%. The gum enhances mineral absorption in tooth enamel, increasing its strength. A natural sugar, Xylitol has 40 percent fewer calories and 75 percent fewer carbohydrates than ordinary sugar. Look for brands where xylitol is listed as the first or second ingredient for best results. Our office likes Spry products.

maxgoesto3. Picture Books. Books still make the best gifts. Choose a stocking stuffer that encourages the love of reading while helping to ease anxieties about going to the dentist. One classic we recommend revolves around the iconic characters, the Berenstain Bears. You can find The Berenstain Bears Visit the Dentist on Amazon.

4. Tooth Fairy Box. Trinkets are popular in the big sock. Instead of a jewelry box or ordinary keepsake, why not offer a tooth fairy box instead? Playful and available in a multitude of themes for boys and girls, a tooth fairy box will get the kids excited about that current or soon-to-become-loose tooth. You can even try crafting your own.
