Father’s Day may be just around the corner, September 1st for those of you who might have forgotten, but there is still time to make sure that your Dad gets the best Father’s Day gift – no shipping required!
How can this be? Because the best Father’s Day gift doesn’t require shipping, you can find it in your local stores!
Our Dads are never disappointed with the gift of caring, remembering, and appreciation for all the love and support they have given us.
The greatest gifts are wrapped in gratitude and delivered with a hug and a thank you. And this year, the best gift for your Dad is the gift of dental health.
Read on to discover EK Dental Surgery’s suggestions for the gift of dental health this Father’s Day!
Not only can an electric toothbrush keep your Dad’s teeth extra clean with little work, but they bring your Dad extra benefits as well:
It keeps his heart and mind healthy. Plaque can cause gum disease and inflammation if. In some people, the infection can slowly damage the blood vessels in the heart and brain, and has been linked to a variety of health problems including stroke, diabetes, heart disease and dementia.
It’s great if Dad has arthritis. Using a manual toothbrush can be difficult and even painful if your Dad suffers from arthritis or mobility problems in the wrists, hands, or arms. Not only do electric toothbrushes have chunkier handles that are easier to grip, but the brush does all the hard work for you.
It enables Dad to brush longer. Dentists recommend we brush continuously for two minutes. Electric toothbrushes eliminate guesswork, thanks to built-in timers. Some alert you at 30-second intervals, so Dad knows when to move on to a different section of his mouth.
It can relieve sensitivity. Many of us scrub too vigorously, which can remove enamel. With an electric toothbrush the rotating, pulsating bristles do the hard work, making it difficult to apply more pressure than you need.
It stops one-sided brushing. Right-handed people tend to brush the left side of their mouths more thoroughly than the right side, and vice versa. Electric toothbrushes get around this by applying equal pressure to all parts of your mouth, making sure each tooth receives the same amount of attention.
DIY Toothbrush holder
Does your Dad’s bathroom lack toothbrush holders, or feature drab, unexciting ones? Then give him a gift he’ll see twice a day, a do-it-yourself toothbrush holder.
You can make his toothbrush holder from a variety of things:
- Test tubes
- Mason jars
- Old toothpaste tubes
- Miniature kid toys
A quick search of the Internet will reveal multiple possibilities!
Dental Emergency Kit: Does your Dad like to camp or travel? Keep him safe on the road when he far from a dentist. Buy or build an emergency kit containing the basic first aid needed to help deal with most common dental emergencies.
The gift of a stunning smile
As your Dad ages, so does his tooth enamel, becoming dingy and even getting stained. If you’d like to help your Dad regain the shiny white teeth he once had, give him the gift of tooth-whitening from EK Dental Surgery.
The most commonly used teeth whitening procedures are professional home whitening systems and in-chair whitening. Professional dental whitening is fast and effective. The procedure is non-invasive, as it doesn’t involve drilling or removal of a tooth surface. The home whitening system is simple and cost-effective. EK Dental Surgery will provide you with a whitening kit that consists of custom whitening trays and professional-grade peroxide-based gel.
Guard your Dad’s precious teeth!
If your Dad engages in contact sports, he should always wear a mouthguard. This is one of the most important and most effective protective pieces to prevent injury to the mouth.
Aside from protecting your mouth, a mouthguard also cushion blows to the mouth or jaw, thereby preventing damage to the jaw or neck.
There are two types of mouthguards:
- Ready-made– These are less expensive than custom-made types but provide less comfort and protection.
- Custom-made– Designed by your dental professional and moulded from your teeth. This mouthguard causes little interference with speaking or breathing. Custom-made ones provide the best protection and fit over fixed bridges and other dental appliances.
A custom mouthguard provided by your Glen Waverley dentist is a great way to protect your Dad’s smile while he plays sports!
