Everybody likes to see their Dad smile. This is particularly true on Father’s Day, when we all try hard to please him.
And seeing your dad grin in pleasure is a great reward for a great Father’s Day gift. But what if your father doesn’t feel great about his smile? What if his dental health isn’t perfect?
At Alex Bratic Dental Care, we suggest you do something slightly untraditional this Father’s Day.
Instead of giving your dad another tie, why not surprise him with a dental gift – the gift of smiles and dental health?
Of course, to help you pick the perfect dental gift, Alex Bratic Dental Care has a few suggestions.
Travel mug with a built-in straw: Aside from the overall convenience of a travel mug, adding a straw protects dad’s teeth from stains caused by coffee, tea, soda, or other dark-coloured beverages. Straws also help safeguard dad’s teeth from sugar that can erode enamel and lead to cavities.
An electric toothbrush: Give your dad the gift of good oral health with an electric toothbrush. You can pick the toothbrush that is just right for your dad. Perhaps your dad needs a travel-friendly brush, a brush for sensitive teeth, or a brush with a timer. Work with such details, and you’ll find a great present.
Electric toothbrushes offer superior plaque removal and ease of use. They are also great for Dads with flexibility issues.
Personalised toothbrush and toothbrush holders: Oral hygiene shouldn’t be boring, and one way to spice things up is to give your dad a gift that reminds him of you. So, personalise a toothbrush and holder at home, or look online to find personalised dental supplies. Your dad will love it!
Dental Emergency Kit: Does your dad camp or travel? Nothing is worse for a hiker or traveller to than dental problems. So, create (or buy) an emergency kit containing basic items to help deal with most common dental emergencies. And don’t forget to include a phone number for Alex Bratic Dental Care, so your dad can consult us if he is near a phone.
Here are some contents for a good emergency kit.
- Medical-Grade Exam Gloves
- Dental Mirror & Flashlight
- Save-a-Tooth System– The Save-a-Tooth System is a saline solution that can keep a tooth “alive” when it is knocked out.
- Dental Wax– Wax is useful for irritation from braces or a chipped tooth.
- Toothbrush & Tweezers
- Sterile Gauze – Gauze placed over the site of bleeding can help stop bleeding.
- Hydrogen Peroxide– If you need to disinfect or clean up blood, hydrogen peroxide can come in handy.
- Floss, Toothpicks
- Orajel or Anbesol
- Pain Medication– Over the counter pain medication can help relieve oral pain.
If you don’t want to make your own dental first aid kit, consider a ready-made solution. A range of different dental first aid kits are available online.
Whitening teeth for Father’s Day!
As we age, and this goes for Dads, teeth can become stained or discoloured for different reasons. Teeth may become darker due to pigment buildup within the tooth. Drinking tea, coffee and red wine, eating curries and smoking can all stain teeth.
And a dingy smile can harm personal, romantic, and work relationships. So why not get your dad a teeth-whitening treatment from Alex Bratic Dental Care?
Our teeth whitening is the gentle, supervised take-home approach. We build personalised trays, note current tooth colour, and give instructions on how to whiten Dad’s teeth. Dad takes the trays and whitening agent home to use over a 10-day period.
Benefits of Teeth Whitening
- Improves confidence and self-worth
- Enhances the ability to connect and communicate with other people
- Creates a more positive mood and disposition in life
- Motivates Dad to keep up the health of his teeth
- Improves Dad’s physical and emotional wellbeing
White teeth are a perfect gift for your Dad!
Bacon (or something else unusual) flavoured dental floss: Dental floss comes in a lot of exotic flavours including bacon and cupcake. In fact, you can buy your Dad a complete package of bacon-themed grooming supplies including Bacon Bandages, Bacon Floss, Bacon Toothpicks, Bacon Soap, Bacon Lip Balm & Bacon Breath Mints!
If bacon isn’t the right choice, there are many other flavours: Dill pickle floss; Waffles, bacon, and coffee, or; Ranch dressing flavoured floss.
