If you’re stumped about how to stuff your child’s Christmas stocking this year, it’s a good idea to turn to things that can help improve your child’s dental and overall health! Because there’s such an increase in sugary candies and treats around the holidays, this can be a great motivator for your kids to better care for their teeth.
Holiday Dental Stocking Stuffers
Fun Toothpaste Flavors – It can sometimes feel like a chore to get your kids to brush their teeth. However, new toothpaste with a fun or wacky flavor can make it seem less like a chore! Toothpaste flavors include cupcake, pickle, Oreo, and even bacon! These toothpastes should work just as well as the regular brands.
Sugar-Free Gum – If your child has a sweet tooth, allow him or her to indulge in sugar free candy or gum, especially those that contain Xylitol. Xylitol has been shown to decrease the risk of dental cavities, but your child won’t feel deprived of treats!
New Toothbrush – A new toothbrush can be a great motivator! Make sure your child’s new toothbrush features his or her favorite television character, super-hero, or Disney princess. If your child is a teen, it’s a good idea to invest in a nice electric toothbrush!
