If you’ve never had a cavity before, you may be feeling nervous about getting one…
One of the best things about the holidays is making your loved ones smile. This Christmas, give your family the gift of a healthy smile. Here are some of the best dental gadget gifts they’ll be excited to find under the tree.
Waterpik Flosser Tool
Waterpik flossers are a great investment towards a healthy smile. They utilize a pressurized stream of water, similar to the pressurized water tool that your dental hygienist may use to clean between your teeth and along your gum line during professional dental cleanings. Designed for at-home use, the Waterpik can be game changing for those hard to reach places between your back molars or if you have dental appliances like bridges, braces, or fixed retainers that can make your dental hygiene routine more complicated.
Electric Toothbrush with App
Electric toothbrushes are more than just motorized brushes now. As technology has advanced, many have been upgraded to include built-in timers, UV or blue light technology, ultrasonic vibrations, and the capability to sync with a smartphone app to provide real-time feedback and encouragement to promote healthy brushing habits.
Studies have shown that people who use an electric toothbrush experience fewer cavities, less likelihood of developing gum disease, and keep their natural teeth for longer when compared with those who use a traditional toothbrush. With all those benefits, it’s clear why so many reviewers name electric toothbrushes among the best dental gadget gifts.
UV or Blue Light Gadgets
UV and blue light technology have come a long way in recent years. Many gadgets are now available for everything from toothbrush sanitizing to teeth whitening systems that utilize this innovative technology. Talk with your dentist about the benefits of UV or blue light technology and which products are effective and safe.
Talking with Your Dentist

Your dentist will be happy to lend their expertise and experience to help you find the products that will make your loved ones smile the brightest.
