Want a More Kissable Mouth for Valentine’s Day? Follow These Tips!
Valentine’s Day is just around the corner! And, perhaps, you’re planning a great date with your significant other! Of course, you want to make sure your mouth is kissable on this holiday – and we’ve got some tips for you!
- Brush Your Teeth
This may seem like a no-brainer, but are you brushing your teeth properly? Are you brushing your tongue and palate? You should be brushing for 2-3 minutes twice per day in order to remove plaque from your teeth. Give your teeth a good brushing before heading out on your Valentine’s Day date.
Flossing is an important part of good oral health. You should be flossing once per day to remove plaque and food particles that are stuck between your teeth or below the gum line. When these food particles are left in your mouth plaque forms and the bacteria causes bad breath. Bad breath is definitely not attractive.
- Avoid Certain Foods
You know that certain foods such as onions and garlic can cause bad breath, but there are some other foods and drinks that you should watch out for:
- Dairy Products
- Sugary Treats
- Give Up Tobacco
This is a hard one but using tobacco products definitely does not help your mouth be more kissable. The chemicals contained in tobacco products cause bad breath and can lead to other oral hygiene problems which contribute to bad breath. Give up tobacco to help your breath and your overall health.
- Reverse Gingivitis
Gingivitis is a common problem in adults and the symptoms are:
- Bad breath that won’t go away
- Red or swollen gums
- Tender or bleeding gums
- Painful chewing
- Pus around the teeth and gums
- Sensitive teeth
The good news is that gingivitis can be reversed. Products such as Perfect Smile Oral Care have been proven to help reverse gingivitis with ingredients such as CoQ10, xylitol, and vitamin C.
If you want to increase your “kissability” factor this Valentine’s Day, then follow these 5 tips! You and your significant other will be glad you did!
