Father's day is one of those holidays that children really seem to relish … probably because aside from Mother's Day, it's the only day when *they* get a chance to pick out a gift and give it to someone - especially someone as special as their Father. All the Dads in our life enjoy the attention (even if they're actually Grandfathers!) - it's their day to finally shine. So why not mix it up a bit this Father's day? After all, Dad probably has a pretty fine collection of ties and after-shave from years gone by … so, here are two unique gifts Dad might really enjoy this Father's day.
First on deck, we'd like to suggest what's known as a water flosser or oral irrigator. This product is a great gift for those of us who don't possess an affinity for flossing (which is, pretty much everyone, right?), because it really simplifies the process, and even makes it a bit fun. A flosser/irrigator works by using water pressure to dislodge food debris and bacteria between teeth and helps to keep your gums clean and healthy. It also works exceedingly well if regularly used after a cleaning from an hygienist, and they're the perfect gift for any dad.
And for the dad who plays sports? How about a custom mouthguard? You can find out more about these in our sports dentistry article, and your dad will love it if he plays in any summer leagues, or if he skis and snowboards in the wintertime. As a matter of fact, a dad who's really active in just about anything sports-related might benefit from a custom guard. Regardless of the season, this is one of the most affordable gifts you can give to an active dad so he can keep that smile of his in great shape for years to come.
