This Valentine’s Day: Give Your Teeth a Little Love!

Valentine’s Day is the time of year when we all want to show our partners or those we have admired from afar our love. Before ordering your valentine chocolates and Champagne could you spare a thought for your teeth and show them a little love too.

Try Saying I Love You With Flowers

Flowers will be the most tooth kind valentine gift. Unfortunately chocolate and champagne can cause problems for our teeth. Chocolate has large amounts of sugar which our oral bacteria turn into acids which then attack the surface of our teeth leading to tooth decay and cavities.

Whilst drinking sparkling wine can also cause problems for our teeth as the bubbles have high levels of acidity which can cause weakening and softening of the tooth enamel.

No One Loves Bad Breath

Smoking is bad for your breath, your teeth and bad for your health. People who use tobacco are twice as likely to get gum disease as someone who doesn’t smoke. So give yourself the best Valentine’s Day present this year and quit.

Share a Life But Not a Toothbrush As Cavities Can Be Contagious

Whether through kissing or sharing a fork or toothbrush, the bacteria that causes cavities can spread to another person.  So brush twice a day for two minutes with your own toothbrush and clean between your teeth once a day to have a cavity-free smile.
