It’s officially the most romantic day of the year – Valentine’s Day! How will you be celebrating it? Maybe a cosy night in with a glass of wine, a candlelit meal, or travelling to your favourite holiday destination.
Whatever you decide to do this February, nothing says I love you like the perfect smile and this Valentine’s Day we want you to show some love to your teeth with these handy dental tips and tricks.
Choose your sweet treats wisely
If you plan on treating your love (or yourself) to a box of chocolates or candy, then we advise to choose wisely. Try to avoid sticky caramels, hardened sweets, or snacks with a sugary coating as this can wear the enamel on your teeth and cause cavities to develop if left unchecked.
Chocolate wise, leave ones with chewy or sticky centres and opt for chocolate that contains less additives, less sugar and more cocoa.
Freshen your breath
Make sure to keep your breath fresh and free from any pesky food particles or bacteria on your special date, especially after having a romantic meal.
Flossing or popping a mint in your mouth should do the trick and drinking plenty of water should help to neutralise any signs of bad breath – ready for a quick kiss or two!
Stay on track with an oral hygiene routine
It goes without saying that by maintaining a consistent oral hygiene routine, you reduce the risk of gum disease, plaque and tooth loss.
Brushing after every meal will ensure your teeth stay clean, healthy and bright, as well as making regular check-ups with your dentist – allowing you to enjoy spending the day with your friends, family or sweetheart!
Remember, your teeth and gums deserve to be loved and cared for just as much!
