Tips for The Perfect Valentine’s Day Smile from your Hoppers Crossing Dentist

by | Feb 12, 2020 | Hoppers Crossing Dentist Tips, Valentine's Day 2020

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, it’s as easy as pie to begin thinking about the sweet candies you’re about to consume.

While October’s Halloween is unquestionably the time of year when all the sweets you can imagine are eaten by children, Valentine’s Day may be the occasion when adults tend to indulge.

Dark chocolate, milk chocolate, sweet candies to enjoy at work– showing the love is the name of the game.

As you enjoy chocolates and sweets from your sweetheart on Valentine’s Day, do not forget your teeth might be at risk to several dental problems.

Here are some tips to achieve the perfect Valentine’s Day smile:

Be careful with sugar! 

Limit your consumption of sugary drinks and beverages, and fewer bacteria will grow in your mouth, and your breath will smell better.

Not all chocolate is equal

If you are buying sweets on Valentine’s Day, dark chocolate is the best choice as it contains lower sugar levels compared to milk chocolate.

Avoid sticky foods

Stay away from hard candies, gummy candies, and caramel, which are terrible for the teeth. Instead, give a card, flowers, or a romantic dinner.

Eat sweets at the right time

If you can’t avoid sweets, enjoy them after a meal to lower exposure to sugar and bacteria. Be sure to practice a good, thorough hygiene routine afterwards!

Drink plenty of water

Water helps control the bacteria in your mouth. To keep your mouth and body functioning at their best and keep your breath fresher, you should drink 48 ounces of water each day.

Get a scale and clean from Sayers Dental Aesthetics & Implants. A professional scale and teeth cleaning helps eliminate plaque build-up, tartar build-up, and bad breath. Plaque exposes your teeth to decay and is very unattractive.

You might need a scale and clean if you…

  • have plaque or calculus on your teeth that can’t be removed by brushing and flossing alone,
  • want to take preventative measures to take care of your teeth,
  • have teeth that are stained from smoking,
  • have temporomandibular joint pain (TMD), or
  • have stained teeth as a result of consuming coffee, tea, and other staining foods and beverages.

Teeth scaling and root planing help deal with persistent gum disease. They are more in-depth than a regular teeth cleaning and may often take several dental visits.

Valentine’s Day is a great holiday, and we hope you go out and enjoy it. But as you do, spare a little thought for your dental and general health.

The better condition your smile and health is, the more likely you are to enjoy many Valentine’s Days in the future!
