Have you started shopping for the holidays yet? Sometimes it can be hard to find gifts for our loved ones in orthodontic treatment with braces & clear aligners. Thankfully, we have an Orthodontic Gift Guide! Here are some gift and stocking stuffer ideas that can bring them joy and spruce up their journey with braces.
Orthodontic Gift Guide
A water flosser can help remove food from hard to reach places and help reduce cavities. This is also helpful in alleviating soreness after adjustments. We recommend the Waterpik brand, as it is effective, adjustable, and different-sized tips.
For people with the travel bug, we recommend a cordless water flosser. It is not as strong as the corded one, but is still an invaluable (and convenient) tool to bring on your vacations.
Ideally, you should use the water flosser to flush out large debris, then use string floss to scrub between your teeth.
An electric toothbrush is an essential tool for cleaning around brackets and wires. It is an excellent and efficient way to ensure that teeth stay nice and clean, even without braces. After testing, we recommend the Sonicare & Oral-B brands.
Do you know someone getting their braces off soon, or have just completed orthodontic treatment? A whiter smile will bring additional confidence to newly straightened teeth.
You may not have to wait to finish orthodontic treatment before whitening your teeth. Tooth whitening can also be done while in clear aligners, like Invisalign.
Contact our office to learn more about our tooth whitening kits that we have in the office!
On the road often? In addition to a travel water-flosser, an oral care travel case is perfect for maintaining orthodontic hygiene while on-the-go! Travel cases with removable partitions make it easy to organize your oral care items. If you have clear aligners, you can also designate a fixed spot for all your aligners.
Instead of physical items, why not give a holiday gift this year that lasts a lifetime – straight teeth? Check out all of our options here. We offer traditional braces, clear braces, and clear aligners (Invisalign) to kids, teens, & adults.
It’s the small things that matter most, and that is the stocking stuffers! Here are some ideas that will make braces & Invisalign easier for your loved one!
- Lip Balm (for dry lips, a personal favorite, it iss gluten free and vegan!)
- Soft Chocolates and Cookies
- Breath Strips
- Compact mirror (to see any leftover food in the teeth)
- Orthodontic Wax
- Silicone Orthodontic Wax
