For a number of people, holiday gift shopping begins the day after Thanksgiving. With this year’s holiday fast approaching, there are plenty of gift-giving opportunities coming up.
While you are shopping for your friends and family, think about getting some gifts to inspire them to maintain oral health.
Now is a great time to start thinking about oral hygiene gift ideas that will make your loved one’s smile twinkle all year round!
At EK Dental Surgery, we have some gift ideas for you to ease your decision.
#1. Oral Irrigators
An oral irrigator is a small handheld dental device that helps to flush bits of food and other debris from between the teeth using a stream of pressurised water.
This bit of food and debris, if left there, can cause bad breath. An oral irrigator reduces the severity of halitosis and leading to a fresher smelling mouth.
More so, if by chance any of your loved ones are suffering from gingivitis, the inflammation of the gums, studies have shown that oral irrigation also has a positive effect on the disease.
A gift of an oral irrigator will leave the mouth of your loved ones feeling refreshed and clean, and after a while, their teeth will have considerably less plaque on them.
A quite number of people enjoy using mouthwash because it leaves them with a pleasant minty feeling that arouses a fresh feeling in their mouth. Rinsing your teeth with a mouthwash that contains fluoride will help reduce the risk of cavities, which is one of the biggest dental concerns.
The best way to reduce cavities and the demineralisation of your teeth is to use a mouthwash that contains fluoride. As such, give a gift of fluoride mouthwash this holiday season to yourself and make it part of your daily oral hygiene regimen, so you can avoid any surprise cavities.
Tongue scraping is a fast and easy way to remove extra particles such as debris and bacterias from the surface of your tongue.
Using a tongue scraper twice a day will enable you to better distinguish between bitter, sweet, salty and sour sensations. A study has shown that using a tongue scraper twice a day for seven days reduces the overall incidence of bacterias that are known to cause bad breath and dental decay.
Incredibly, the benefits of using a tongue scraper go beyond the bounds of oral hygiene and fresh breath. It improves the overall health of the body. Don’t you think this will be a nice gift for that friend of yours?
#4. Snore Guard
A small and simple guard may just be the perfect gift for that couple to enjoy a restful nite of sleep.
Though snoring occasionally can be a symptom of a serious disorder called sleep apnoea, a disorder in which the patient briefly stops breathing while asleep. An oral snore guard is a normal treatment for mild or moderate cases of sleep apnoea.
