Who ever said that dental hygiene has to be a stuffy, straight-forward, boring experience? Not our Dallas, TX team, that’s for sure! While you’re focusing on infusing your daily life with as much holiday magic as you can, why not spread some of that joy over into the dental care part of your day-to-day experience? We think we just might be able to come up with some fun ideas that will help you transform the usual brushing-and-flossing into a full-of-excitement (and possibly full of laughs) time of day that the whole family can truly enjoy.
Wear Festive Accessories
In case you haven’t seen the holiday headbands that are out this and every year, we think you might want to put them on your radar. You’ll know just the ones we’re talking about: When you place them on your head, it looks as though you are wearing reindeer antlers, glittery snowflakes, etc. Pop one of these on to each family member’s head before your dental hygiene session and you are sure to liven everyone’s spirits as you brush and floss! (Of course, a Santa hat or any other accessory will work just as well!).
Turn Up The Holiday Tunes
Nearly everywhere you go, there’s holiday music playing. We ask: Why not turn up the volume when you’re in the bathroom, as well? Does your family have a particular favorite holiday song? A radio station? Whether you’ve got a radio playing or you have a playlist set up, remember that adding some Christmastime magic into your dental hygiene by playing jolly, happy songs will help everyone have a wonderful time (even if what you really want to be doing is wrapping gifts and watching holiday movies!).
Make Everything Colorful!
One very easy way to make the holidays fun when it comes to your dental hygiene? Change out the decor and products in the bathroom and you’ll have yourself a Christmas haven or a winter wonderland! Consider the following:
- Swap out your usual items with ice-blue and white towels, use white or blue toothbrushes, and white or blue paste, and it’s a chilly, wintry scene that helps you avoid cavities!
- Choose all red-and-green (again, towels, toothpaste, brushes, and more), and you’ll feel surrounded by the spirit of Christmas even while you brush and floss!
