Whatever holiday you celebrate in December, it’s likely there will be gatherings with family and friends and gifts for children. While most children wouldn’t be into a fancy new electric toothbrush as their main holiday gift, some dental products can be fun and can make excellent stocking stuffers for kids. Dr. Fleming and the staff at Dentistry of Nashville have some recommendations for dental-related stocking stuffers that your kids will appreciate.
1. Wild Flossers by J&J
Less than 25% of adults use dental floss regularly, so it’s important to start developing your children’s good habits when they are young. One way to do that is by adding some much-needed fun to the flossing experience.
J&J Wild Flossers are a product that does just that, providing dental picks in a variety of colorful shapes and colors that kids won’t be able to resist. Each flosser is shaped like different dinosaurs and from the fun packaging to the easy grips, it’s clear that this is the perfect way to make flossing fun for your children.
2. Battery Powered Toothbrush – Disney’s Frozen
For less than $5, you can get your kids started with their first electric toothbrush. As soon as they see their favorite Disney characters on the packaging, they’ll be excited to check it out. The buttons and colorful design will hold their attention, and once they experience the fun of an automatic toothbrush, you may never have to beg them to brush their teeth again! Oral-B and Crest Disney’s Frozen Battery Operated Toothbrush is a phenomenal way to encourage your kids to look forward to their oral care routine.
3. Hello Fluoride-free Natural Watermelon Toothpaste
An excellent choice for parents who care about organic and cruelty-free products, this toothpaste by Hello Oral Care is completely recyclable and made in the USA.
From the bright packaging to the unique flavors, Hello Oral Care has created one of the best toothpastes for kids. If the natural watermelon flavor isn’t to their liking, you can try Blue Raspberry or Bubble Gum instead. The ingredients in Hello Natural Toothpaste, make it safe for young kids and effective at keeping their teeth clean. You’ll find cavity-busters like Xylitol and a silica blend that polishes their teeth, as well as being fluoride-free in case your child accidentally swallows it. Packing enhancements to taste and fun, this toothpaste by Hello Oral Care might spark a love of oral care in your child.
