The Stockings are Hung by the Chimney with…Toothbrushes?

The holiday season is here with us! It’s a great time to be intentional about teaching kids good dental hygiene habits, even through your gifting. Stocking stuffers with proper oral care tools make amazing little gifts with a huge impact. Here are some fun stocking stuffers that will help your kids develop healthy dental care habits.

Themed Toothbrush

Your kids will appreciate a themed toothbrush that has their favorite characters on it. You’ll find toothbrushes themed after your child’s favorite cartoons or movies, whether it’s Frozen, Spongebob, Paw Patrol, Star Wars, or your child’s favorite superhero.

A Fun Toothpaste Flavor

Bright colors and fun flavors are more likely to get your kids excited about brushing their teeth. Find a strawberry, watermelon, or bubble gum flavored toothpaste to bring new excitement to their tooth brushing routine. Just make sure you see the ADA-approved seal on the packaging.

Sports Mouthguard

If your child plays sports, then consider getting a mouth guard this holiday season. Mouthguards minimize the risk of broken teeth or lacerating a lip, tongue, or cheek and would be an excellent gift for a child who plays an active sport.

Tooth timer

Having a timer in the bathroom is a sure way to ensure your child is brushing their teeth for the recommended two minutes.

Give your child the tools to start the New Year with sparkling teeth this Christmas. Instead of filling your kid’s stockings with more candy, these items can help them maintain a fun oral health care routine. Call Carolina Smiles Dentistry at 919-620-6700 to schedule an appointment for your child.
