You may not be looking for advice from your dentist when it comes to Christmas shopping. However, we think you will agree that a nice, healthy smile is a gift that anyone can appreciate.

With that in mind, here are a few suggestions that can fit in a stocking from our team at Edgewood Dental Care.


Most people do not floss daily even though the American Dental Association recommends that you do so. If you are not willing to use dental floss, flossers can offer a more convenient option to clean between your teeth and gums.

Sugar-Free Gum

Specifically, you should look for sugar-free gum with xylitol. Chewing this after meals when you don’t have an opportunity to brush can reduce your risk of developing cavities.

Electric Toothbrush

This can be a great pick for kids and adults. For children, an electric toothbrush can make brushing more fun, which can help them develop good oral hygiene habits. For older adults, an electric toothbrush can make cleaning more effective if they can brush as well as they could when they were younger.

Even with these gifts, don’t forget to visit us for professional cleanings and exams. If you haven’t made an appointment yet, call 859-474-7830 or contact us online to schedule an appointment at Edgewood Dental Care in Edgewood, KY.
