Play it safe with our Valentine’s day tips!

1> Make sure you brush your teeth and tongue (yes, your tongue) twice a day and remove excess plaque and bacteria with flossing.

2> Use anti-bacterial mouth wash once or twice a day.

3> Chew gum. Chewing gum stimulates the salivary function and the function of saliva is to clean your teeth.

4> Eat good dental foods—an apple a day will keep both the doctor and the dentist away. Fiber-rich and crunchy foods are natural tooth cleaners.

5> Never go to sleep with an unclean mouth. When we sleep we have a reduced salivary flow. If you don’t wash away the cavity-causing bacteria your mouth won’t either.

6> Visit your dentist twice a year for check-ups.
