Valentine’s Day Oral Hygiene Tips

Published on January 22nd, 2018

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner! Whether you are planning to spend Valentine’s Day with a special someone, friends, or celebrate loving you, your dental hygiene is important. You don’t want bad breath or a mouthful of cavities. As your South Loop dentist, we are sharing tips to make sure that your oral hygiene is in top shape before February 14!

Did You Know Cavities Can Be Contagious

Whether through kissing or something as simple as sharing a fork, bacteria that cause cavities can spread from one person to another. Avoid cavities by brushing twice a day for two minutes and flossing between teeth daily.

Sharing Is Not Always Caring

No matter how close you are to your special someone, sharing a toothbrush should never be an option. Sharing toothbrushes mean sharing all of your germs.

Brighten Your Smile

Everyone loves a confident smile. If whitening makes you feel confident, talk to your South Loop dentist about which option is best for your teeth. Here at South & West Loop Dental, we offer a variety of whitening options. Click here to learn more.

Ditch The Tobacco

Smoking is not only bad for your health, it’s bad for your breath and stains your teeth. Someone who uses tobacco is much more likely to have gum disease as someone who doesn’t smoke. Likewise, smokers are much more at risk for oral cancer. Love yourself this Valentine’s Day and quit smoking.

Beware Of Your Bad Breath

Bacteria is a huge culprit of bad breath, so good dental hygiene is very important. Other ways to keep your breath fresh are over-the-counter antimicrobial (germ-killing) mouthwashes or chewing sugarless gum.
