Be Kissable this Valentine’s Day!

It doesn’t matter if you are kissing your five year old, your spouse/significant other or your grandmother, no one wants to kiss or be kissed by someone with poor oral hygiene. Surveys have shown that the first thing most people will notice when meeting someone new is their smile. That is the perfect reason to maintain your healthy smile on Valentine’s Day and all year long. Your healthy mouth starts with you! Brushing and flossing twice a day and avoiding sugary and acidic foods will help you keep your smile bright and healthy. Another important thing to remember is to keep your 6 month appointments for professional cleanings. When bacteria and decay are caught and corrected early you prevent it from spreading to healthy parts of your mouth and causing your pearly whites further damage.
A dry mouth is one of the most common and easily reversible causes of halitosis (bad breath) so remember to drink plenty of water. If you choose to freshen your breath with mints and gum, remember to choose products that contain the natural sweetener xylitol as studies have proven that it actually reduces your risk of getting cavities.
If you are unsatisfied with the appearance of your teeth, there are many things that Dr. Glass can do to help you get the smile you’ve always wanted. From something as simple as a whitening tray to brighten your smile, veneers that change the overall aesthetics of your smile or orthodontia (yes, even for adults) to re-align wayward teeth, Dr. Glass can have you smiling more than ever before and will help you be sure your mouth is kissable all year long!
