3 Ways Improve Your “Kissability” – Valentine’s Day Dental Tips

kenmore-dentistIt’s the month of the year when love is in the air. With Valentine’s Day, there will surely be a romantic dinner, gifts, hand holding, and of course, kissing. To show your significant other what a great kisser you are, follow these Valentine’s Day dental tips for 3 ways to improve your ‘Kissability’.

Freshen Your Breath

It’s not just smoking and garlic that causes bad breath. Poor oral hygiene also leads to foul mouth odors. When you skip a morning or afternoon brush, bacteria is given time to accumulate. This causes inflammation that releases noxious odors with a sulfur-like smell. Our family dentists always advise clients to brush twice a day and use a mouthwash with anti-bacterial agents like alcohol. Non-alcoholic mouthwash may mask bad breath, but it does not kill the bacteria responsible for the odor.

Dental-Friendly Gifts

Chocolate in a heart-shaped box is a mainstay gift, but do you really want to give your lover an item that causes cavities? There are plenty of alternatives like a bouquet of roses or a cuddly teddy bear donning an “I Wuv You” shirt. If you still prefer to opt for sweets, then consider solid dark chocolate confections without nougat fillings. These are less damaging to teeth.

Get Your Teeth Whitened

Good impressions don’t go out the window merely because you and your significant other have moved beyond the hand-holding phase of dating. Tempt your date to kiss you with a stellar smile. Consider seeing a cosmetic dentist about a week out to have your teeth whitened before your big date.
