Here at Sand Springs Family Dentistry we love our moms, and we appreciate everything they do for us. With Mother’s Day around the corner, now is a great time to start thinking about what type of gift would best suit your mom. Here are a few gift suggestions that will help you let one of your favorite people know how much you love and appreciate her smile.
Whiten her smile
Busy moms may want a whiter and brighter smile, but finding time to fit this kind of self-care into an already-packed schedule can seem impossible. The whitening technology used in a dentist’s office is safe, comfortable, and thorough. Only dentists have access to professional-strength products that remove even stubborn stains that won’t budge with over-the-counter whitening kits.
Enjoy a healthy and delicious meal
Treat Mom to a special Mother’s Day brunch that includes teeth-whitening strawberries and nutrient-rich salmon with omega-3 fatty acid to help fight gum disease. Bring Mom a cup of green or black tea to help inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria in the mouth. Vitamin C is essential for healthy teeth and gums. Be sure to include lots of fruits and vegetables for a dose of vitamins A, B2, and B12 as well.
The Waterpik flosser is popular among dentists for its ability to thoroughly and quickly clean in hard-to-reach crevices between teeth. Using a strong and effective amount of water pressure, these ingenious little devices work like traditional flossing but take about half of the time. The Waterpik makes flossing easier. It even helps to remove yellowing plaque from the outer surfaces of teeth for the ultimate healthy, white smile.
Electric toothbrushes may be a much as twice as effective as a manual toothbrush. They offer advanced technology such as preset timers and pulsing silicone brushes, as well as features like smaller heads and contoured handles that cater to individual preferences. The average person can’t oscillate their toothbrush 20,000 cycles per minute, so an electric toothbrush offers an increase in efficiency. This is a gift that may help your mom’s next dentist appointment be smoother and more pleasant.
There’s nothing like Mom’s smile to light up a room. Give her the gift of a confident dazzling smile this year. From all of us at Sand Springs Family Dentistry, we wish you a Happy Mother’s day. It is our goal to provide each of our patients with the best dental care possible. Be sure to contact the team here at Sand Springs Family Dentistry and set up an appointment with Dr. Whitney today!
