It’s just about time to take the day to tell your mom how much you appreciate her: Mother’s Day is just around the corner! Have you started shopping yet? Do you have preliminary list of possibilities going but you haven’t made any final decisions? We know that it’s very easy to instantly head out with your sights set on sugary delights but we remind you that though such a gift may be delicious, it can also encourage tooth decay! As a dental team, of course, we enjoy offering up some equally lovely alternatives that will keep Mom’s oral health just fine (if not a bit safer).
Remember, Chocolates Aren’t Required
Yes, chocolates are a lovely gift but you don’t have go to the sweets route. You can give your mother flowers (absolutely safe for her oral health), a sweater, a card, something homemade, jewelry, and the list goes on and on. However, if this is a tradition, perhaps bring a bottle of water, too, so she can swish afterwards to rinse some of that sugar away. Speaking of which…
Tote-Able Water Bottles Are A Favorite
If you haven’t done any research lately into the world of reusable water bottles, then you might not realize just how many options are available. Whatever your mother’s personality, there’s a bottle for her. From bottles available through luxury retailers to utilitarian models from your local camping store, there’s something for everyone. This is the gift that keeps on giving, as it helps your mom tote water around, which keeps teeth washed free of bacterial buildup, helps her avoid dry mouth, and protects her oral health! Take a look around online: You may be surprised by what you find!
