Children on Christmas

The holidays are nearly here! That means that you’re probably doing all sorts of things to prepare for some celebrations. Whether you are getting together gifts for your loved ones, listening to festive music, or pulling out the old family cookbook for some delicious foods for your holiday dinner, you have plenty to look forward to. However, the last thing that your children need is more sweets in their stocking that could harm their smile. Fortunately, a dentist in Richardson has some stocking stuffer ideas that will motivate your family to stay on top of their oral health.

New Toothbrushes

The holiday season may just be the worst time of the whole year for your children’s teeth. With so many holiday sweets around, delicious foods, and traveling, it is easy to fall into some bad oral hygiene habits. That’s why there’s no better time to invest in some new toothbrushes for your family. For kids, you can find all sorts of fun toothbrushes. Look for their favorite color, cartoon character, or even brushes that play songs for the proper brushing duration.

Yummy Dental Products

You probably love that fresh, minty taste that toothpaste and mouthwash leave on your smile. However, this taste can be too strong for younger kids, but that’s okay. There are all sorts of fun flavors that your kids will love. Look for toothpaste that is bubblegum, strawberry, or orange flavored. The most important ingredient to look for is fluoride. This natural mineral is what is so effective at protecting teeth against cavities. Look for the ADA seal of approval. This guarantees that the product is safe and will help to keep your kids’ teeth healthy.

Sugarless Sweets

Candy that is free of sugar can be found at your local supermarket. This way, your child can satisfy their sweet tooth without you having to worry about the health of their teeth. Look for sugarless gum by the register or sugar-free lollipops in the candy section at the grocery store.

Healthy Snacks

The easiest snacks to grab may be chips and crackers, but these aren’t very tooth healthy. In fact, they can be just as harmful as sugary sweets. Instead, try adding snacks like salted nuts, string cheese, or yogurt to munch on. Not only are they delicious, but they are beneficial for oral health.

Don’t forget about your children’s oral health this holiday season. Add a few of these items in their stockings so they can start the new year cavity-free!
