If you’re looking around the stores or online for ideas of what to gift your loved ones, you might notice a common theme: sugar. From candy canes and peppermint bark to toffee-filled candy bars, many holiday treats are good news for your taste buds and bad news for your teeth. Fortunately, you can read on for five dentist-approved stocking stuffer ideas for people of all ages!

1. Dark Chocolate

In short, some treats are better than others, and dark chocolate is one of them! In addition to being filled with antioxidants, the food particles won’t cling to your teeth like caramel candies, taffy, and the like do. As a result, your loved ones can indulge in their fair share without worrying too much about cavities.

2. A Fun Flavored Toothpaste

If you’re looking for a more playful gift, then consider buying a fun-flavored toothpaste. Today, they make all sorts of flavors, including bubblegum, strawberry, and even bacon! Just double-check that the one you’re buying is ADA-approved. That way, you know that it’s tasty and effective.

3. A New Toothbrush

Although the American Dental Association recommends getting a new toothbrush every quarter, many patients forget to do this. So, consider putting a new one in your loved one’s stocking this year. You can get a themed one if you’re shopping for a niece or nephew, or a new electric one if you’re shopping for a parent or significant other!

4. Sugar-Free Gum

Sugar-free gum can be helpful in a number of situations. Feel like your breath smells heading into a meeting? Chew on some sugar-free gum. Don’t have time to brush your teeth after lunch? Chew on some sugar-free gum. One of the biggest perks of this stocking stuffer is that you can order it online or pick it up at your local grocery store or pharmacy if you’re a bit short on time.

5. A Gift Card

Gift cards are a great stocking stuffer because they are small in size but can make a big impact. Plus, you can easily tailor it to the person you’re shopping for. For example, if they mentioned that they want to whiten their teeth, you can cover their consultation so they can learn more about their options!
