Christmas is around the corner, and your kids are going to come up with their wish list. This list probably includes that new PlayStation 4 game or that Monster High doll. In fact, your kids will probably give you that stink-face look if you give them something like a toothbrush. Believe it or not, though, there are some dental-related gifts for kids that your little ones may actually like. Here are a few items our family dentists recommend.
Dental Gifts the Kids will Love
1. Electric Toothbrush
There are electric toothbrushes where the handle comes in the form of a cartoon character. Some even play music. This is a gift we like because it will actually make your kids look forward to brushing.
2. Toothbrush Holder
Let your child have his own toothbrush holder. Wall-mounted and freestanding holders are available in the shape of animals, cartoon characters, superheroes, and so on.
3. Dental Coloring Books
We recommend educational coloring books on the subject of oral hygiene maintenance. These often feature cartoon characters in the dental office, assuming the dentist role, or brushing at home. You can even look for dental coloring pages online, print them out, and bind them for a handmade coloring book. Add a box of crayons, and you have a full Christmas gift set.
4. Teeth Whitening Kit
Some controversy surrounds teeth bleaching kits. Our cosmetic dentists think they’re fine as long as the user realizes that whiter-looking teeth does not equal cleaner teeth. This could make a nice gift for teenage kids who are super conscious of their appearances.
Make a Pre-Holiday Appointment
Make an appointment with Kenmore Dental before Christmas. Our dental team would like to give everyone the gift of a brighter smile. Dental hygiene, though, begins at home, and the dental-related gifts for kids that we recommended will make brushing a more enjoyable experience.
