Is Your Mouth Ready for Valentine's Day?

Valentine’s Day is only a few days away. As a holiday that is all about love, a lot of emphasis is placed on your mouth. Think about how many time you’ll say “I love you,” how many smiles you’ll flash, and how many smooches you’ll lay on the one you love. Tulsa dentist Dr. Mark Davis wants to help you make sure your smile is ready for Valentine’s Day.

Minty Fresh Breath

When it comes to kissing and other close contact with the one you love, you don’t want bad breath to interfere. Most people know that brushing and flossing regularly are great ways to achieve a fresh-smelling smile, but what many patients don’t know is that chronic bad breath, known medically as halitosis, is often a sign of a serious dental problem, such as periodontal disease, tooth decay, oral thrush, and dry mouth.

If you adhere to quality dental hygiene practices—brushing, flossing, rinsing with a fluoridated mouthwash, and attending professional dental cleanings and exams—and you still suffer from halitosis, it’s time to schedule an appointment with Dr. Davis at the Perfect Smile Tulsa to see what’s behind your bad breath.

Sparkling, White Teeth

Nothing causes you to hide your smile as much as dental stains. After years of drinking coffee and red wine, smoking, or aging, it’s not uncommon to have a yellowish, dull, or slightly stained smile.

Show your loved one the best version of yourself this holiday. Consider in-office teeth whitening at the Perfect Smile Tulsa and gain immediate and dramatic results. After only an hour of treatment time, you’ll leave our Tulsa office with a sparkling white smile.

Soft, Hydrated Lips

The human body is made up of water, and we, as humans, need a great deal of water to remain hydrated and healthy. If you want soft, kissable lips this Valentine’s Day, make it a priority to consume a lot of water, and avoid dehydrating, sugary liquids, like coffee, tea, alcohol, soda, and juice. In addition to making your lips soft and kissable, drinking a lot of water helps increase your saliva flow to protect your teeth from sugar, acids, and bacteria. Drinking water also prevents against dry mouth and similar oral health problems, and makes your breath smell better.
