Millions of people will kiss on Valentine’s Day. A few routine hygiene steps can improve your chances of getting the smooch you desire.
- Fresh breath starts with a clean mouth. Brush after eating or at least twice a day, including your tongue. If you can’t brush right after meals, swish with plain water and chew a piece of sugar-free gum with xylitol.
- When lunch odors linger, use an antibacterial mouth rinse.
- Floss before bedtime.
- Apply lip balm frequently, especially in cold or dry weather.
- Keep regular appointments with Sequoyah Dental Arts, so we can watch for gum disease and other oral problems.
