With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, show your smile some extra love and appreciation. Whether you’re planning a romantic date or a cozy night in, a beautiful, healthy smile is sure to dazzle your special someone. A great way to achieve a confident, kissable smile is to make sure you’re practicing proper oral hygiene. Avoid the embarrassment of bad breath and yellowed teeth this Valentine’s Day and go into the day flaunting a gorgeous smile. We’ve provided some dental health tips to help you get a smile your date is sure to fall in love with.
Brush and Floss Daily
Brushing and flossing your teeth is one of the easiest ways to keep your teeth and mouth clean. For an even deeper clean, consider using an electric toothbrush – they’re able to remove larger amounts of bacteria. Don’t forget to brush your tongue to avoid buildup and bad breath.
Use Fluoride Mouthwash
While mouthwash isn’t necessary, rinsing your mouth after you eat or drink can help kill the bad bacteria in your mouth. Some mouthwashes don’t properly remove bacteria, so make sure you get one that contains fluoride and Listerine.
Eat Healthy Food
Healthy eating contributes to a healthy mouth. This Valentine’s Day, treat your teeth to meals filled with vitamins, calcium, potassium, and iron. Practicing healthy eating habits will help you maintain a stunning smile that’s sure to impress.
