Stuff Those Holiday Stockings with Teeth-Healthy Gifts

spongebobbrushWhen the stockings are hung by the chimney with care this year, why not fill them with treats and trinkets that will help your loved ones care for their teeth?

Dr. Angell and staff recommend these great tooth-friendly ideas your children will love:

  • A new toothbrush featuring characters such as Dora the Explorer, SpongeBob SquarePants or Transformers
  • A brightly colored toothbrush case for use on sleepovers or vacation
  • Flavored fluoride toothpaste, such as Colgate Kids 2-in-1 watermelon-flavored toothpaste, and flavored dental floss
  • Packets of no-sugar added dried fruit; nuts covered with dark chocolate; baggies of homemade granola mix or chewy fruit leather made with 100 percent fruit
  • Sugar-free gum with Xylitol, which has been shown to help prevent tooth decay
  • A sports mouthguard in a fun color or design
  • A travel-size dental hygiene kit for an older child’s locker; include floss, travel size toothpaste and toothbrush, mouthwash, breath mints or gum.
  • Wax and floss threaders or orthodontic floss for children with braces
