Looking for some creative stocking-stuffer ideas to keep your family's teeth clean and healthy during the holidays?

Delta Dental of Michigan, Ohio and Indiana recommends the following gift ideas to ensure healthy teeth and gums in the New Year:

-- Musical Toothbrushes

Musical toothbrushes play popular songs while brushing for the recommended 2 minutes. A musical toothbrush is a great way to make brushing fun for all ages and is a perfect fit for a stocking.

-- Flavored Dental Floss


Skip the candy canes and stuff stockings with a different tasty treat -- peppermint and cinnamon flavored floss.

-- Sugar Free Gum/Mints

Holiday sugar treats can take a toll on your teeth. Sugar-free gum and mints after meals and at times when brushing is not an option can help reduce the risk of tooth decay.

-- Toothbrush Covers

Toothbrush covers help reduce the amount of airborne bacteria that collect on a toothbrush. They come in all shapes and sizes including festive colors and holiday themes.

-- Dental Flossing Tools

Flossing tools make the daunting task of flossing your teeth much simpler and they're available in Christmas red and green. The ease-of-use helps reinforce the good flossing habits needed to keep hard-to-reach areas clean.
