Season’s Greetings!

Milwaukee-Brookfield, WI Best Cosmetic Dental Office, Dr. Thomas Tang, DDS, during the Holiday Season, is making teeth fun with Dr. Tang’s Best Dental Holiday Gift Guide. 

The Holidays are here and there is magnitudes ingestion of cookies and candies which are potentially harmful to everyone’s smile, as well as, other foods and drinks that could cause severe staining, dulling our smile. Milwaukee-Brookfield, WI Best Cosmetic Dental Office, Dr. Thomas Tang, DDS, thought that, “well this is no fun, we all want to enjoy the celebrations but its inevitable this holiday season, we could dull or harm our smile...” Milwaukee-Brookfield, WI Best Cosmetic Dentist, Thomas Tang, DDS, thought of a great gift guide to recommend ideas for stuffing your loved one's and friend’s stockings with gifts that can combat tooth decay, cavities and dulling of the teeth, to keep smiles brighter and healthier. 

“Eating foods that are high in sugar, and drinks that are highly staining, without genuine basics of oral care, can result in tooth decay and cavities,” as Dr. Tang, Milwaukee-Brookfield, WI Dentist, Thomas Tang, DDS, an accredited cosmetic and general dentist says. “What better way to tackle teeth destroying sugars and more, we often consume during the holiday season, than to gift your friends and family the Gift of Smiles that Dazzles packed with fun as stocking stuffers to care for their or even your teeth?” 

If not removed by brushing or other means, sugars in the mouth can contribute to tooth decay, thus cavities. Naturally occurring bacteria in the mouth form a colorless, sticky film called plaque, yeah for plaque. No thank you. Cavity-causing bacteria within plaque feed on sugar and turn it into acid, which attacks tooth enamel and leads to tooth decay. Sigh

Dr. Tang, Milwaukee-Brookfield, WI Dentist, Thomas Tang, DDS, best general dentist delivers great news. “...proper brushing, flossing, swishing of H2O, Fluoride and chewing sugar-free gum are easy ways to fight tooth decay,” as Dr. Tang, Milwaukee-Brookfield, WI Dentist, Thomas Tang, DDS, an accredited cosmetic and general dentist says. 

Dr. Tang, Milwaukee-Brookfield, WI Teeth Whitening Dentist, Thomas Tang, DDS, says after many patients who receive Zoom! Whitening Treatments as well, who desire to keep their smile dazzling white, thought why not make teeth fun and offer encouragement when it comes to oral care to maintain smiles to be brilliant white and healthy? In today’s market, there are fantastic dental products that are packed with hot, trendy and, most importantly, a lot of fun. 

Dental Oral Care does not have to be boring anymore, so Let’s make teeth fun!

This is why Milwaukee-Brookfield, WI Best Cosmetic Dentist, Thomas Tang, DDS, an accredited cosmetic and general dentist recommends the following stocking stuffers to could help promote healthily, brilliant and happy smiles this holiday season, as well as deliver smiles, joy and laughter.

Let’s start with the Little ones

Focus here is to keep our little ones brushing and flossing to promote healthy teeth. 

Why not start a Routine packed with Fun?

First really cool idea (in the image displayed above),Thomas Tang, DDS, Milwaukee-Brookfield, WI Best Cosmetic Dental Office, thought by starting in the Teeth World and our Smile Environment, why not create these cute little hand towels to decor the bathroom to correspond with our little one’s language? 

Sew on OMG! or LOL! or =)~ SB (Smile Beautiful) or BFT (brush floss teeth)...if our little one’s spent as much time texting symbols, perhaps, we can encourage the same in the bathroom, using their language to brush, floss and swish?

This can be at very little cost, and can be personalized with bling, or any kind of personal style.

Now for the rest of the Gift A Smile Guide Some more Great Gift ideas...of course packed with fun.

Cupcake or Bacon Floss anyone?

Flossy bacon and cake! 

It's dental floss that tastes like cupcakes! Even if it doesn't turn the recipient into a regular flosser, it'll at least inspire some curiosity.

Proper dental care is the best way for good oral health. And proper dental care (other than visits to the dentist) involves brushing and flossing. Well, look below for help with brushing, but right now, we're showing off some new floss. Flossing is hard because the only real flavor out there is mint - and that gets stale. Suddenly, two new flosses appear: Bacon and Cupcake Dental Floss!

Bacon and Cupcake Dental Floss takes something we don't like (flossing) and combines it with something we do like (bacon and cupcakes). And just to be clear, these are two different flosses: the bacon tastes like bacon and the cupcake tastes like frosting. We just had to clarify that, so you didn't think the bacon floss tasted like frosting or anything. Because we care about your tastes, your teeth, your smile, bacon, and frosting. Bacon and Cupcake Dental Floss - it's in good taste (get it?) to clean between your teeth.

Bacon and Cupcake Dental Floss

  • Keep your teeth healthy and your tongue happy with these tasty flosses.
  • The bacon floss tastes like bacon and the cupcake floss tastes like frosting!
  • Waxed dental floss.
  • Total Floss Length: 27.3 yds (25m)

Green Gift Guide Stocking Stuffer: Natural Cranberry Dental Floss

This month I will be offering a Green Gift Guide, a series of products I recommend for holiday gifts. Let's start with something everyone needs--dental floss! This is not your run of the mill dental floss however, it's cranberry dental floss from RADIUS. Not cranberry flavored, but coated with cranberry phytochemical essence which prevents plaque and gum disease. This would make a brilliant stocking stuffer. It's on sale right now for 25% off and you can find it HERE

Cranberries can be good for more than serving over turkey. Recently there has been a lot of talk about the antioxidants in cranberries and their natural ability to fight UTIs and even gum disease. Dr. Oz talked about it on his tv show and recommended cranberry floss. Even Glamour reviewed the tart and tangy floss.
