Mother’s Day, the holiday honouring all mothers, is observed across much of the world.

While dates and celebrations vary, Mother’s Day usually falls on the second Sunday in May and traditionally involves presenting mothers with flowers, cards, and gifts like perfume and jewellery.

But, surely, by now your Mom has all the jewellery she needs, plenty of cards (if she even saves them?), and a history of wilted roses.

This Mother’s Day, why not give your Mom an unexpected gift, but one that is caring, thoughtful, practical, and long-lived? Why not give your Mother the gift of dental health?

At My Local Dentists Northmead, we have a few suggestions for dental gifts that can help support your Mom’s dental health and bring a great big smile to her face!

#1 Get Mum a Treatment!

The possibilities are as endless as your Mum’s dental needs and wants.

The best place to start is with a dental check-up and clean, or if she thinks her smile has tarnished over time, set up with teeth whitening.

If you think it is too hard to gift wrap a dental check-up and clean, then think again.

#2 Electric Toothbrush

Electric toothbrushes are great at removing dental plaque and can be much easier to use than regular toothbrushes.

This is particularly useful if you have a Mum with arthritis or other flexibility issues.

Dentists suggest brushing teeth for a solid two minutes, but the reality is most people do not dedicate enough time to cleaning and only commit about 45 seconds to their teeth, tongue, and gums.

Most electric toothbrushes have internal timers that can make your Mum fully conscious of her brushing time and even alert her every 30 seconds to move to a new quadrant of her teeth!

#3 Water Flosser

A water flosser uses small jets of pressurised water to wash bacteria, food, and other types of debris from the mouth.

They do not only remove debris and bacteria that a toothbrush may miss but can also help massage the gums.

This can help increase blood circulation and keep gums healthy! Water flossers are also great for anyone who has trouble with precise coordination in small areas that flossing requires.
