Don’t let oral health hygiene disasters scare your love away. Halitosis, also known as bad breath, doesn’t exactly warrant an invitation for individuals looking to steal a kiss or two from a loved one during the season of love. Keep your mouth clean this Valentine’s Day and every day after for a lifetime of love and affection for your teeth and gums.

Here are some additional risks that are abound during Valentine’s Day you should beware of:

– Avoid highly acidic treats such as sour sweets. The acidity in some sour sweets is nearly that of car battery acid!
– If you wish to indulge this year, chocolate is a better choice than most options, as it is much easier to clean off your mouth than sticky, chewy, or hard candies.
– Exercise caution when consuming any hard snacks that can easily crack or chip teeth.
– Sticky candies such as caramels, taffies, and gummies stick to your teeth and gums and can be difficult to remove. Also, be mindful of treats that can get dislodged between your teeth. Floss daily to remove food particles that brushing cannot reach.
