It’s very nearly Valentine’s Day, the day when we all want to impress our loved one. Hopefully you have spent time choosing the right gift, writing out a lovely card and perhaps organising the perfect dinner for two.
We also hope you’ve spent time on your oral hygiene. Valentine’s Day is a day when you get close to your partner, which means, you need to have good oral health and good breath. You certainly don’t want your partner taking a step backwards when you step in to hug or kiss them. Here are our five reasons why you should care of your oral hygiene, and not only for Valentine’s Day.
It shows your partner that hygiene is important to you
Hygiene should be important to you and that includes your own hygiene and that of people around you. It shows that you have a good sense of self, that you want to look good, and that you are making an effort to look good for others. If there is a special person in your life, make an effort for her or him, and that includes your oral hygiene. They will appreciate your sparkling clean mouth!
It makes intimacy easier
Nobody wants to kiss someone with bad breath. And honestly, intimacy is just that much nicer when you have a fresh mouth and one that is well cared for. Dentistry today makes it so much easier to have white teeth, straight teeth and fresh delicious breath. A six monthly check up does wonders for your oral care, and there are so many methods for teeth whitening today, methods that do not break the bank.
That white smile may be the cause of love at first sight
Flash a beautiful smile at someone and they must just fall in love with you immediately. Of course nobody should be judged on what they look like, but it makes it a lot easier to fall for someone who has good oral hygiene combined with their fabulous personality!
Oral health gives you confidence
If you can smile confidently, you feel confident. If you are hiding behind your hand because your teeth are a little grey, or even missing, you don’t feel good about yourself and this shows. Your self esteem will get the most fabulous boost if you take care of your teeth. Remember, it is never too late. You might not get that fab white smile before Valentine’s Day but you can certainly get it before the next date!
Oral health results in overall good health
If you leave your dental health too long, your problems can become severe which means your overall health is going to suffer. The earlier you deal with your oral hygiene, and keep dealing with it, the better your health is going to be in general. Again, see your dentist on a regular basis and if you don’t have a dentist, call the American Medical and Dental Centre in Dubai. They have an excellent team of dentists, oral hygienists, dental cosmetic surgeons and dental surgeons, for all dental care.
