Many people find going to the dentist harrowing, and you practically have to drag them to the dentist's office for even the most basic dental work. Even the bravest person you know probably fears major dental work, such as root canals and extractions. Make the experience more fun for your loved one by giving them a dental themed gift after their office visit. You could also give your favourite dental school grad, dentist or dental hygienist a dental themed gift.
Dental Care Gadgets
Reduce your loved one's chances of revisiting the dentist soon by giving them a useful dental gadget, such as an electric toothbrush, which produce anywhere between thousands and tens of thousands of strokes per minute, which makes them far more efficient than your standard toothbrush. Power electric toothbrushes are inexpensive but not quite as fast or as strong as sonic electric toothbrushes, which also use water molecule vibration and sound waves to clean teeth and gums. For the reluctant flosser, you could fill a decorative basket with disposable floss sticks and plastic floss holders.
Gifts for Dental Professionals
Choose from an array of dental themed gifts for the dental professionals in your life. Give your dental school graduate nephew a pair of tooth-shaped cufflinks for Christmas, or give the dentist that saw you through three root canals this year a tooth-shaped cookie jar full of sugar-free lollipops. Buy bizarrely flavoured dental floss, such as pickle or bacon flavoured floss, for a dentist with a silly sense of humour. Other dental professional gift ideas include teeth-adorned appeal, such as scrubs and socks; tooth-shaped home accessories, such as clocks or mugs, and teeth-related artwork. You could also make a donation to an oral health charity or association in your dentist's name.
Dental Gifts for Kids
Kids are fascinated by the mythical tooth fairy, who visits them the night after they lose a tooth to exchange the missing tooth for money. You could give a child who is feeling anxious about losing his baby teeth a special tooth fairy pillow, which is embroidered with an image of a happy cartoon tooth, or covered in a repeating tooth pattern. You could also buy a child a dentist action figure or doll, dental and tooth-themed stickers or colouring books, or you could buy the child a teeth brushing reward chart.
