Everybody likes to see their Mother smile. This is particularly true on Mother’s Day when we all try hard to please her.

And seeing your mom grin in pleasure is an excellent reward for a great Mother’s Day gift.

But what if your mother doesn’t feel great about her smile? What if her dental health isn’t perfect?

At EK Dental Surgery, we suggest you do something slightly untraditional this Mother’s Day.

Instead of giving your Mom more perfume, why not surprise her with a dental gift – the gift of smiles and dental health?

Of course, to help you pick the perfect dental gift, EK Dental Surgery has a few suggestions.

Read on to give your mother the gift of dental health this Mother’s Day!

#1 Get Mum a Treatment!

The possibilities are as endless as your Mum’s dental needs and wants.

The best place to start is with a dental check-up and clean, or if she thinks her smile has tarnished over time, set up with teeth whitening.

If you think it is too hard to gift wrap a dental check-up and clean, then think again.

#2 Electric Toothbrush

Electric toothbrushes are great at removing dental plaque and can be much easier to use than regular toothbrushes.

This is particularly useful if you have a Mum with arthritis or other flexibility issues.

Dentists suggest brushing teeth for a solid two minutes, but the reality is most people do not dedicate enough time to cleaning and only commit about 45 seconds to their teeth, tongue, and gums.

Most electric toothbrushes have internal timers that can make your Mum fully conscious of her brushing time and even alert her every 30 seconds to move to a new quadrant of her teeth!

#3 Water Flosser

A water flosser uses small jets of pressurised water to wash bacteria, food, and other types of debris from the mouth.

They do not only remove debris and bacteria that a toothbrush may miss but can also help massage the gums.

This can help increase blood circulation and keep gums healthy! Water flossers are also great for anyone who has trouble with precise coordination in small areas that flossing requires.
