Valentine’s Day is fast approaching! If you thought that there wasn’t a special way to celebrate all the love when it comes to your smile, you were wrong! Granted, we understand that you may assume we forbid days that include a heavy focus on consuming large quantities of chocolate and lollipops. However, we know that our patients are human and that the occasional indulgence is something we all enjoy. As a result, your Moreno Valley dentist is full of suggestions for making sure you can fill your holiday up with tons of fun without harming your oral health.

Let Your Bathroom Get In The Spirit

If you happen to really get into holiday celebrations, let all things related to your dental hygiene participate, too! Here’s what your Moreno Valley dentist has in mind:

  • Make sure everything goes with a red and pink color theme, include your toothpaste, your dental floss, and your toothbrush, too!
  • Go a bit further and get your decor involved. Swap out your usual towels and bath mats for those with hearts on them (or those that stick to the color theme).

Don’t Worry Too Much

Your Moreno Valley dentist reminds you that you can go ahead and enjoy yourself on Valentine’s Day. Instead of worrying about sugar and tooth decay the entire time, remember that as long as you care for your oral health, indulging isn’t that problematic.

Carry Sugarless Gum!

So, how to combat your decision to have fun with cookies, candy, and more? Carry sugarless gum with you (and a bottle of water, if you can). Chewing sugarless gum after a meal or snack removes food and plaque to protect your smile.
