You’re probably looking forward to cosying up with someone special this Valentine’s Day, and we’re here to help make sure your quality time goes as smoothly as possible.
Whether you’re planning on giving your Valentine’s kisses to your sweet grandmother or your significant other, you’ll want to have a clean mouth and fresh breath for giving top-quality smooches.
As you enjoy chocolates and sweets from your sweetheart on Valentine’s Day, do not forget your teeth might be at risk to several dental problems.
Here are some tips to achieve the perfect Valentine’s Day smile:
Be careful with sugar!
Limit your consumption of sugary drinks and beverages, and fewer bacteria will grow in your mouth, and your breath will smell better.
Not all chocolate is equal
If you are buying sweets on Valentine’s Day, dark chocolate is the best choice as it contains lower sugar levels compared to milk chocolate.
Avoid sticky foods
Stay away from hard candies, gummy candies, and caramel, which are terrible for the teeth. Instead, give a card, flowers, or a romantic dinner.
Eat sweets at the right time
If you can’t avoid sweets, enjoy them after a meal to lower exposure to sugar and bacteria. Be sure to practice a good, thorough hygiene routine afterwards!
Drink plenty of water
Water helps control the bacteria in your mouth. To keep your mouth and body functioning at their best and keep your breath fresher, you should drink 48 ounces of water each day.
Visit your Fortitude Valley dentist
Get a scale and clean from Precision Dental. A professional scale and teeth cleaning helps eliminate plaque build-up, tartar build-up, and bad breath. Plaque exposes your teeth to decay and is very unattractive.
Valentine’s Day is a great holiday, and we hope you go out and enjoy it. But as you do, spare a little thought for your dental and general health.
The better condition your smile and health is, the more likely you are to enjoy many Valentine’s Days in the future!
