valentine's day

Valentine’s Day is this week and we want to make sure your mouth is as kissable as possible for your Valentine. Whether you’re kissing your partner or your cute kiddos, you don’t want to scare anyone off because of bad oral health!

Did you know that kissing stimulates saliva? Saliva helps fight cavities. But, if you have poor dental health, you can run the risk of sharing germs, illness or diseases. Here are some tips and things to think about when smooching on Valentine’s Day this year!

Cavities Can Be Contagious

It may sound weird, but when kissing, the bacteria that causes cavities can be transferred to another’s mouth. Make sure you are brushing twice daily for two minutes and floss your teeth once a day for cleaner kisses and a cavity-free smile.

Shine Bright

Everyone loves to have pearly whites! When you flash a pretty white smile, you instantly have a kissable mouth! Learn more about our in-office or take-home whitening kits! These are also great Valentine’s Day gifts!

Share Your Chocolates, But Not Your Toothbrush!

Yes, people do share their toothbrushes and we don’t know why. If you’re in a new relationship and your not ready to leave your toothbrush at your partner’s house (yes, we know this is a big step!) just make sure to keep one in your bag. Sharing toothbrushes also means your sharing  germs, illness or diseases.

Make Sure Your Breath Doesn’t Smell Bad

We’ve all been there, you go in for a kiss and you smell that bad breath (you’re probably really regretting that tuna sandwich at lunch right about now). Bacteria is the main cause of bad breath, so it’s important to stay on top of your brushing and flossing. It’s always a good idea to keep a travel size mouthwash with you or to chew on sugar-less gum. This helps produce saliva which in turn protects your teeth against cavities.

We hope you have the sweetest Valentine’s Day this year and receive and spread tons of love! If you’re worried your mouth isn’t kissable, call us today to set up an appointment!
