Show Your Teeth Some Love This Valentine’s Day! Celebrations like Valentine’s Day are good for the soul and while we love them, they may not be the ideal situations good dental hygiene. Even if your heart says yes, what about your mouth? Problems with your teeth and oral health can really ruin the mood and give your confidence a hit.

 

Luckily, there are ways to help with issues surrounding your oral health, so here are some creative tips to have a smile-friendly Valentine’s;

 

Battle Bad Breath

Bad breath is the ultimate mood killer. Before Valentine’s Day, clear your mouth of off-putting odours by following a rigorous oral hygiene regime and visiting your dentist for a professional cleaning.

 

Drink Lots of Water

Juice, tea, coffee, and soft drinks can be very damaging to your teeth. Water, on the other hand, is good for your oral health as it helps to wash away food particles, sugars, and acids in your mouth.

 

Focus On Flossing

Daily flossing is another way to show your teeth some TLC for Valentine’s Day and keep your breath fresh. It’s also a great way to safely dislodge any food or debris that’s wedged between your teeth. Flossing also helps to remove plaque along the gum line. This means it can also reduce gum disease and the likelihood of bad breath. So there’s no excuse to not make the effort, in February or any other month!

 

Visit Your Dentist

You should visit your dentist every 6 months for a Dental Health Check and clean. This is the best way to catch developing oral issues early and prevent more serious conditions like tooth decay and gum disease. By visiting your dentist before Valentine’s Day, you can make sure that everything is in tip-top shape before your special date. Plus, your smile will look incredible after a professional cleaning from your dentist or hygienists.
