Mothers Day Gifts Everyone Will Smile About
General Dentistry Aptos
This year give mom a gift that shows them how much you love their smile! The Aptos dentists at Drew Dental have a couple suggestions that will promote oral health that they will love.
A Reusable Straw
A reusable straw is an inexpensive way to help support oral health and our environment. Using straws helps protect your tooth enamel from the negative effects caused by sugars, acids or syrups found in many beverages. Having a plastic free and reusable utensil helps eliminate plastic pollution threatening our oceans and aquatic friends.
A Healthy Dessert
Spoil them with treats that will satisfy their sweet tooth and won’t compromise their oral health. Aptos dentists Dr. Jason Drew and Dr. Allyson Drew suggest fresh berries, because they are packed with vitamin C and fiber. But if candy is a must, pass on hard candies and chewy taffies and choose chocolates instead – the darker the better! Chocolate dissolves fast, minimizing the amount of time it stays on teeth.
An Electric Toothbrush
Give them a gift of perfectly clean teeth everyday. Some clinical studies have shown that an electric toothbrush removes plaque from your teeth and gums 21% more effectively than manual brushing. While many brands now offer vibrating toothbrushes, the Aptos dentists at Drew Dental suggest making sure the electric toothbrush you choose has an oscillating head to fully optimize their oral hygiene routine.
A Convenient Travel Size Oral Health Kit
Put together an small kit of everyday essentials like sugar free gum, floss, and a travel toothbrush. This is an easy way to show you care about their health and want to help make their daily routine easier.
