Mother’s Day is on May 12th, and that means a gift for Mom.
This is a dental blog, so if you’re searching for a cosmetics or coffee cup recommendation, you’ve come to the wrong website.
But if you’re looking for thoughtful, useful gifts to protect your Mom’s oral health, Prevent Dental Suite has some useful suggestions.
Because oral health has been linked to severe and chronic health issues, like cancer, dementia, heart disease, and diabetes, it is critical that no one neglects their dental care.
With Mother’s Day right around the corner, now is the perfect time to give the special Mom in your life the lifesaving gift of oral health.
#1 Electric Toothbrush
Electric toothbrushes make brushing simpler and more fun. They have oscillating bristles that quickly and effectively clean the teeth and gums.
They also have convenient features like built-in timers. Some brushes even play music as they clean teeth!
#2 Dental Emergency Kit
If your Mom travels, commutes, or is frequently around children, consider a dental emergency kit.
You can find commercial kits online, or build your own that focuses on your mom’s specific dental concerns.
One thing that needs to be included is the phone number of Prevent Dental Suite. We’re always happy to offer advice in case of an emergency.
#3 If it’s going to be candy, it should be chocolate
Very few people know that chocolate can be great for the teeth, depending on what kind of chocolate you eat.
If you’re going to give chocolate, treat your Mom to the potent compounds in chocolate that help fight decay.
How well do they fight decay? Some scientists believe dark chocolate is more beneficial for teeth than fluoride, as dark chocolate contains a chemical compound called CBH that helps harden tooth-enamel.
The best candy choice on Mother’s Day is dark chocolate with below eight grams of sugar per serving.
#4 Give vitamins and minerals!
As women age, their hormones change also. Unfortunately, these hormonal changes in the body can increase the risk of bone loss and gum disease.
To combat this, it’s essential to increase your intake of Calcium and Magnesium to stay one step ahead. Of course, diet and exercise play a significant role here as well.
#5 The gift of white teeth!
A bright, white smile can make your Mom look good and feel great. This can be achieved with a simple, cost-effective procedure from Prevent Dental Suite, which can remove stains and brighten your teeth.
Whether Mom’s teeth have been stained or darkened by age, or because of smoking, drinking tea, coffee, or red wine, our safe and effective teeth whitening technique will help you regain your beautiful smile.
Whiten your teeth up to eight times better with Zoom! Whitening. The treatment only takes one visit, perfect for those with busy schedules.
Zoom Whitening also offers a lasting solution as well as the removal of stubborn stains.
Take-home whitening. At Prevent Dental Suite, we take impressions of your teeth to manufacture bleaching trays.
A mild bleaching gel is then placed in the trays, and they are placed over Mom’s teeth. This procedure gives slow but effective results in the comfort of your own home.
#6 Restorative dental procedures at Prevent Dental Suite
If your Mom has flaws like chips, gaps, stains, or worn-down teeth, Prevent Dental Suite has several cosmetic dental options for concealing them:
- Porcelain veneers. Prevent Dental Suite can apply ultra-thin porcelain veneers to the front surfaces of teeth, where they hide a variety of flaws. Because they’re custom-made using impressions of her teeth, they look natural in Mom’s smile. They are stain resistant and will last for many years.
- Dental bonding. Prevent Dental Suite applies tooth-coloured resin to teeth to hide flaws. The treatment often takes only one appointment and is reversible.
- Cosmetic crowns. Because they cover entire teeth, crowns can hide extensive damage like severe decay, cracks, or breaks.
#7 Travel mug with a built-in straw
If your Mom is on the road a lot, a travel mug is a, dental-friendly gift.
Make that mug extra dental-positive by adding a straw to protect Mom’s teeth from stains caused by coffee, tea, soda, or other dark-coloured beverages.
Straws also protect Mom’s teeth from drinks with lots of sugar as the liquid bypasses many of the teeth, entering further back in the mouth.
