Happy Mother’s Day from Forster Dental Centre!
Mother’s Day is a day to celebrate motherhood and all the women who have helped raise us.
On Mother’s Day, we demonstrate our love and gratefulness to our mothers in many ways, but many ways that are also predictable.
Every mother has had years of flowers, candy, perfume, gag-gifts, and cards from the corner store.
At Forster Dental Centre, we suggest you give your Mom something different – something that shows thought, love, and practicality.
We recommend you give your Mom a present that won’t go away as quickly as flowers and candy, the gift of dental health!
Forster Dental Centre offers the following 5 gift suggestions.
#1 Water Flosser
Scientific research confirms the benefits of using a water flosser (sometimes called an oral irrigator or Water Pik).
Water flossers improve gum health and fight gum disease by removing plaque and bacteria from between teeth and at the gum line.
A large percentage of tooth surfaces are not on the front or back of the teeth, and water flossers reach areas between teeth and under the gum line where a toothbrush or floss may not reach.
The pulsing water flow is gentle on the gums and less likely to cause bleeding in sensitive gums. Water flossers are also great for people with limited dexterity or mobility.
#2 Noise-Cancelling Headphones
At first glance, noise-cancelling headphones don’t seem to be a dental gift at all.
But noise-cancelling headphones give your Mom the gift of peace and quiet – they are fabulous for drowning out the annoying noises of everyday life, and hey are also great for drowning out the sound in the dental office.
Your Mom can ignore the sound of the drill while listening to her favourite music or show.
This is a great gift for Moms who may have dental anxiety or phobia – it lets them relax and focus on pleasant sounds while Forster Dental Centre makes sure Mom’s oral health is perfect!
#3 Electronic Toothbrush
Not only do electric toothbrushes keep your Mom’s teeth extra clean with less work, but they bring other benefits as well:
It keeps her mind and heart healthy. Plaque can cause gum disease and inflammation.
This infection can damage the blood vessels in the heart and brain and has been linked to health problems including stroke, heart disease, diabetes, and dementia.
Electric toothbrushes are great if Mom has arthritis. Using a manual toothbrush can be difficult and painful if your Mom has arthritis or has flexibility/mobility problems in her shoulder, arms, wrists, or hands.
Electric toothbrushes have thicker handles with contoured grips, and the brush does the hard work for you!
Mom will brush longer. Dentists recommend brushing for two minutes, taking 30 seconds for each quadrant of our mouth.
Electric toothbrushes eliminate guessing as they have built-in timers that can alert you at 30-second intervals that it is time to move on to a different section of his mouth.
It can relieve over-brushing. Many of us scrub too vigorously, which can erode enamel. With an electric toothbrush, the moving bristles do the work, and it is difficult to apply more pressure than necessary.
#4 Cosmetic treatment at Forster Dental Centre
If your mother stays on top of her regular dental hygiene, that’s wonderful! Forster Dental Centre also offers cosmetic treatments that can help Mom achieve the smile of her dreams.
- Porcelain veneers: For teeth that are unsightly due to chips, cracks, stains, poor shape, or slight misalignments, porcelain veneers provide a quick and easy fix.
- Teeth whitening: Everyone wants white teeth, but as we age, our teeth darken and stain. We can treat this with professional teeth whitening. In-office and at-home treatments are available to help Mom’s smile brighten up to eight shades.
- Crowns: For a tooth that needs its form and function restored, a crown provides the perfect solution surrounding the damaged tooth, and stabilising and protecting it.
#5 New toothbrushes without any hassle!
Does your Mom change her toothbrush four times a year? She should.
Give the gift of a new toothbrush (manual or electric toothbrush heads), shipped directly to Mom’s door, just as her old one is wearing out.
One company that offers this is GoodMouth. They not only send replacement toothbrushes to your Mom, but they also donate dental products to people in need.
This year, step away from the cliché. Give your Mom the gift of going completely dental!
