Need a Gift Idea? How About a Healthy Smile?

While there’s plenty of excitement during the holiday season, there’s also always a bit of stress that comes with trying to think of the perfect gift idea for each member of your family. If you find yourself scratching your head as you create your shopping list for the holidays, consider giving the gift of a healthier smile!

Electric Toothbrush Is a Great Gift Idea

Although many people know electric toothbrushes are better at cleaning teeth than conventional toothbrushes, some simply don’t get around to making the purchase or don’t want to spend the money on this effective tool. Either way, an electric toothbrush is a thoughtful, practical gift that the recipient is sure to appreciate.

This is an especially great gift for someone you know if they’ve recently started orthodontic treatment or if they’re about to start Invisalign or braces. There are many different brands and options, including electric toothbrushes for kids that come in fun colors or have removable covers with cool pictures or patterns.


This is another great way to get teeth even cleaner that not everyone thinks about buying for themselves, making it a fun gift. This clever device uses a pressurized stream of water to precisely clean the area around your gums and in between teeth. While it’s not a replacement for flossing, it provides an extra clean feeling and can help prevent plaque buildup and gum issues like gingivitis.

While the WaterPik brand is a great choice, you can also browse other options for water flossers and air-flossers.


If you know someone with braces or have kids with braces, floss-threaders are perfect stocking stuffers. It’s always good to have a supply of floss-threaders on hand when you have braces so you can more easily position your floss for proper cleaning. It’s a gift that’s both thoughtful and highly practical for anyone you know with braces.

Fun Invisalign Case

Here’s another great stocking stuffer idea. Anyone who has Invisalign or a clear plastic retainer will need a case for safe storage. While each patient will get a reliable case to take home from the orthodontist, it’s far more for function than fashion. But you can have fun shopping for a custom Invisalign case with different designs, sports team logos, and much more! It’s a perfect way to give a personalized gift that can be used every day.

Orthodontic Treatment

The holiday season is also the perfect time to give the gift of straighter teeth to a family member. Or, maybe you’ll find it’s the perfect way to give yourself a gift for the holidays.

The best part about this gift is it certainly keeps on giving, since getting straight teeth will improve both confidence and dental health in the long-run. And the end of the year is also the perfect time to spend any unused FSA funds on braces or Invisalign.
