Dental Gifts are Boring

Your dentist may be pushing for floss or toothbrush stocking stuffers, but seriously, who wants that for Christmas? For most of us, a dental-related gift is just a thinly veiled hint to get some bleach strips and a breath mint.

To counteract all the “dental gift lists” popping up in your dentist’s office, we thought we would put together a more “helpful” list of dental gift ideas that might actually make the recipient smile (or gag, depending on how much you like them).

1. Bacon Floss

For those days when minty fresh just can’t beat hickory-smoked grease.

2. Pickle Floss

When was the last time your mouth felt fresh after chowing down on that briny green snack?

3. May the Floss Be With You Mug

If you find your friend’s lack of a funny mug disturbing, use the Force (or just Amazon) to place this under their Christmas tree.

4. Denture Bottle Opener

If you’re lucky, they might actually try putting it in their mouth to use it.

5. Buck-Tooth Pacifier

Just a little friendly encouragement to brush the baby’s teeth.

  1. These types of gifts are very fun for kids. Since they are a very important audience in the world of dentistry I think this is great. It creates the fun and awareness to dentistry.

  2. If a person can satisfy their craving for bacon with flavored toothpaste and avoid consuming the real thing they’ll undoubtedly be healthier for it! Personally I can think of numerous other flavors that have more appeal. For starters how about coffee … since I stopped drinking the real thing.
