6 Useful Gifts Ideas for Dad this Father’s Day
Father’s Day is on September 1st, and that means it’s time to decide on a gift for your Dad.
Our blog is about dentistry, so if you’re looking for a tie or coffee cup recommendation, you’ve come to the wrong place.
But if you’re seeking thoughtful, practical gifts to protect your Dad’s oral health, Sayers Dental Aesthetics & Implants has a list of suggestions for you.
Supporting your Dad’s dental health can be quite important.
Did you know that men are less likely to receive dental treatment than women and they don’t brush as regularly?
And poor oral health has been linked to serious, chronic health issues, like dementia, heart disease, cancer, and diabetes.
It is important that no one neglects dental care, and with With Father’s Day almost upon us, now is the perfect time to give your Dad the lifesaving gift of oral health.
1. The “choose your own gift” gift
Partly because it is difficult to determine what your Dad might want, gift cards are a great way to get him started toward dental health.
Unlike a general gift card, a dental gift card shows you particularly care about Dad’s health, which is both specific and thoughtful.
When purchasing a gift card, here are a few treatments to think about.
- Teeth whitening. Natural aging and some of Dad’s favourite things, like wine and coffee, tend to make his teeth look yellow or discoloured. A ZOOM teeth whitening treatment in our office will make his smile significant shades brighter in 1-2 hours.
- Porcelain veneers. When applied to the fronts of teeth, these wafer-thin “shells” of toothlike porcelain cover a range of flaws in a smile.
- Smile design and makeover. A smile design and makeover is a comprehensive and synergistic combination of treatments appropriate for your Dad’s smile. By getting these treatments performed together, effects can be multiplied and costs can be reduced.
If your Dad suffers damaged or missing teeth, he might be happy with some of our restorative dentistry procedures.
2. Creative mouthwash and toothbrush holders
Oral hygiene is a routine, but it doesn’t have to be tedious. Spruce up your Dad’s bathroom with a DIY mouthwash or toothbrush holder.
Make the holders out of something near and dear to your Dad – the bottle from his favourite cologne, use a theme from his favourite team, or even include family pictures.
Oral hygiene can be fun with a little creativity!
3. Travel/emergency kit
Does your Dad like to hunt, camp, or travel for business? If he does, a combined travel/emergency dental kit might be just the thing.
You can purchase one in a pharmacy or online, or put together a DIY kit that is designed for any special oral condition your Dad might have.
Include the obvious things like a travel toothbrush, travel toothpaste, floss, latex gloves, cotton pads, saline solution, over-the-counter pain relievers, and mouthwash.
Also be sure to include the phone number of Sayers Dental Aesthetics & Implants, as we are always willing to give our patients the advice that they need.
If your Dad has any special dental situation, such as dentures, include the relevant contents such as denture adhesive, cleaning solution, etc.
4. Bamboo toothbrush
A bamboo toothbrush is for that “green” Dad.
They have soft, non-damaging bristles to protect gums and enamel, and their bamboo handles are antimicrobial, helping to keep bacteria in the bathroom out of your Dads mouth.
The toothbrush and packaging are biodegradable, and one packet of four bamboo brushes sets your Dad up for a year of brushing!
Another eco-friendly option to consider is an innovative manual toothbrush made from bioplastics.
They have wide brush heads and soft bristles to distribute the brushing pressure. The heads are swappable and recyclable, and the brushes and packaging are biodegradable.
5. Noise-cancelling headphones
Here’s a gift that your Dad can enjoy in the dental chair and pretty much anywhere else.
He’ll be able to listen to his favourite music, audiobooks, or podcasts. These headphones block out annoying external noises, including those made by dental tools!
6. Mouthguards for the sporty Dad
Is your Dad athletic? Then get him a mouthguard to protect his jaws and teeth. A dad who’s active in just about anything sports-related can benefit from a custom guard.
Regardless of the game or season, this is one of the most thoughtful gifts you can give, and Sayers Dental Aesthetics & Implants can give your Dad a customised mouthpiece for extra safety and comfort!
