There will be plenty of sweet and sticky treats in your children’s Christmas stockings this year. How about balancing that with some smart choices for dental health?

  1. Add some flavored dental floss (Brush Buddies Flossers look more like a toy than a tool!)
  2. You can get a whole lot of kid-friendly toothbrushes that look goofy but are great for kids.
  3. Of course, sugarless gum is a great substitute for at least some of the Christmas candy in that stocking.
  4. You can get a whole lot of cool, kid-friendly travel kits for next year’s backpacks, too. Some are even packaged with favorite characters and TV shows.
  5. For the young athlete, pick out a mouthguard in his or her favorite color.
