On Mother’s Day, we recognise the wonderful Moms and other women who raised us by, among other things, giving them Mother’s Day gifts.
In recognition of this special day, Precision Dental is doing our part to help you thank your Mom with a great gift.
And that can be difficult because Mom is usually the one giving things to us, sometimes it’s difficult to know what she needs, and sometimes Moms are too shy to tell us what they want.
This Mother’s Day, avoid the ‘traditional’ predictable gifts we give mothers – chocolates, flowers, cards – and give her something thoughtful, helpful, and practical.
Give your mother a gift that improves her oral health, or upgrades her smile, making her want to flash it more often!
Here are a few gift suggestions from Precision Dental.
#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.

Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there! Keep smiling!
