Are you ready to celebrate the holidays in style? If you are like most of us, you still have some last-minute shopping to do and gifts to acquire. Today, we have some stocking stuffer ideas to help you wrap up the holiday busyness and bring healthier smiles to the ones you love.

#1 We should be replacing our toothbrushes every 3-4 months to make sure they are cleaning our pearly whites effectively. The holidays are the perfect time to upgrade to an electric toothbrush, and is especially appreciated by those who can’t seem to brush for two minutes twice a day. An electric toothbrush is a gentle yet powerful cleaner which can make the time spent brushing double efficient.They are both safe on tooth enamel and gum tissue so that kids, teens, and your spouse will love their new toothbrush.

#2 Travel-sized anything is fun to carry around because they are convenient and compact. This makes them perfect as stocking stuffers, as they can easily be in handbags or backpacks or suitcases to take out to eat, to school, or to work and keeping smiles clean. Toss pocket-sized toothbrushes, toothpaste, and flossing tools into your shopping cart for the holidays.

#3 Most people, young and old, love to try new things. New flavors, such as those in novelty toothpastes, are a great way to spark some zest into our oral hygiene routine. You can find flavors of all variety in stores and online which are sure to please everyone on your list. Options we’ve seen are Oreo, pickle, bacon, watermelon, and vanilla, and that’s just a select few. No one will be left out this holiday season!

#4 Colgate Wisps are a useful oral health care item that can make cleaning your teeth easy and convenient wherever you go. These disposable, compact toothbrushes don’t even require water, or toothpaste to remove foods particles, oral debris, and freshen your smile. Tuck these into stockings to be used wherever your loved ones go.

This year, celebrate the holidays by keeping this light and fun and easy. Our dentist, Dr. Robert J Land and our team wish you a healthy, happy holiday season. Please call us at 928-726-1700 if you have any questions or concerns about oral health. We are here for you and your family all-year-round.
