Candy is Dandy but… Valentine’s Day and candy go hand in hand, so be sure to satisfy your sweet tooth but remember that the bacteria which causes cavities to thrive in sugar you’d find in candy. After indulging, have a glass of water to remove some of that sugar, and remember to keep up with your normal brushing and flossing. Speaking of water…
Dry Mouth = Bad Breath: One of the leading causes of bad breath is dry mouth (consider how your breath is in the morning). Saliva washes away and kills bacteria in your mouth that causes bad breath, so keep some water handy!
Clean Your Tongue: On the subject of bad breath, be sure to clean your tongue on a daily basis to ensure that your mouth is clean and your breath is fresh.
Pick Your Toothpaste Carefully: The drug store has got so many choices for toothpaste, it’s hard to know which is right for you. We would recommend toothpaste with fluoride to help fight cavities. Whichever brand you choose, be sure fluoride.
Make Sure You’re Brushing Right: We’ve talked about proper brushing before, but just to make sure- Brush no less than two minutes a session and be sure to brush the gum line as well as your teeth.
