Mother’s Day (May 12) is just around the corner.
With it comes the question of “What to get the woman who raised you?” It is not always easy to figure out what to get a Mom on Mother’s Day.
Mothers are often modest and don’t always make it clear what they want.
Which leaves it up to you to figure out what a good gift is without surrendering and giving something cliché (flowers, chocolates, cards) or something cheesy (coffee cups with silly pictures or messages).
But what if there was a unique gift, a thoughtful gift, and a practical gift all in one? It turns out there is such a gift – the gift of improved dental health.
At Thornton Dental, we’ve put together a list of gifts that keep on giving; gifts that help your Mom stay healthy and keep her smile bright and shining.
#1 The Electric Toothbrush – a cleaning appliance for teeth!
Most Moms love doing things and doing them right. So why not give Mom a “cleaning-tool” that that supports her oral care, and do it right the first time?
Electric toothbrushes are among the best tools for cleaning teeth and gums, promoting oral health, and brushing for the two minutes that dentists recommend.
Electric toothbrushes have pulsating/oscillating/rotating heads that break down plaque and wash it away.
Make sure to get a model with a built-in timer that ensures Mom doesn’t cut her two-minute brushing session short.
Some timers even vibrate every 30 seconds to signal that it’s time to move to a new quarter of the mouth.
Electric toothbrushes are particularly suitable for Moms with arthritis or manual dexterity limitations.
#2 Make Mom a Toothbrush Holder, for a DIY Gift
Does your Mom keep every paperweight and card you’ve ever made her? If she does, she might like a custom-made toothbrush holder, one you’ve created especially for her.
A quick look online will turn up a variety of different approaches; some use mugs, some bottles, some old silverware, and some use toys.
In many cases, they use materials you probably have on hand. A homemade toothbrush holder won’t break the bank, and the fact you made it yourself makes it even more special!
#3 Toothbrush Sanitizer
Toothbrush sanitizers are bacteria-killing tools perfect for anybody. And since most toothbrushes are kept in bathrooms, which are coated in bacteria, buying your Mom a sanitizer is a great way to protect her oral health.
#4 Teeth Whitening
Our smiles reveal a lot about us, which we would rather hide if we have stained and discoloured teeth.
The most common causes of this are smoking and drinking red wine, tea and coffee or even some antibiotics.
Over time these can lead to yellowing of your natural teeth. This means that as your Mom ages, the chances her teeth will yellow or darken increase.
So why not give the gift of a more stunning smile?
Teeth whitening at Thornton Dental can be carried out in the surgery, so your Mom’s teeth can be several shades lighter in one to two hours.
He can choose the Zoom teeth whitening or regular teeth whitening. Zoom teeth whitening takes less than an hour with resulting shade eight times brighter.
#5 A Visit to Thornton Dental
If you’re looking for a Mother’s Day gift to put a smile on Mom’s face, take her to the comfortable and convenient offices of Thornton Dental for any treatment she needs.
Candy, flowers, and perfume come and go, but an appointment with one of the highly experienced dentists at Thornton Dental gives her a reason to smile on Mother’s Day, and every day as well.
Whether Mom needs a simple checkup or wants to improve the appeal of her teeth with cosmetic treatment, a visit to Thornton Dental gives her the beautiful, healthy smile that she deserves.
