Pucker Up for Dental Health
- Posted on: Feb 9 2011
It’s always the right time to kiss the one you love, but did you know that puckering up can actually have a positive effect on your dental health?
According to the Academy of General Dentistry, kissing increases saliva in your mouth, which cleans your teeth of the bacteria that can cause cavities. (And if you don’t have someone special to smooch, sugar-free gum with xylitol can offer the same benefits.)
Even if you’ve been diligent about safeguarding your grin with kisses, it’s still possible to develop a worn-out smile. Or maybe you haven’t even had the opportunity to see if kissing works to your advantage… have you been shy about puckering up with anyone because you’re embarrassed by your smile, breath, or gums?
Dental implants are one way to get a permanent new smile. Also popular with our clients at Smile Texas are porcelain veneers and porcelain crowns and bridges. And if you need a bit of courage to make your new smile come to life, we offer sedation dentistry which helps make you comfortable and allows us to complete multiple procedures in one visit.
