Nothing says romance like bad breath right? Wrong! Bad breath is a very unattractive trait and not only can be unbearable for your nose, but it can mean that your oral anatomy is having some health issues. Many patients who have severe tooth decay and missing teeth have bad breath because of the food debris that is secreting chemicals and toxins, the same chemicals rotting eggs let off. This Valentine’s day, don’t let your bad breath and unsightly teeth get in the way of you going out and either spending time with your loved one,or finding new love at a bar or nightclub.
Kisses and Oral Health
Kissing is one of the most enjoyable actions that we do with our mouths, other than eating delicious food. If you have missing teeth, then chances are that there are not many kisses coming your way. Dental implants can provide relief to your oral ailments not only aesthetically, but also internally. For missing teeth patients dental implants are a gift from heaven because it will permanently replace their missing teeth with porcelain crowns and titanium implants that are designed to look and feel like real teeth. Strength and oral function will be restored to your oral anatomy, allowing you to eat a variety of different foods that will provide you with the nutrition you need for the maintenance of a healthy body.
In addition, dental implants can help boost your self confidence in your oral appearance and allow you to have the tenacity in speaking to other people. Being able to smile and talk freely can open a lot of doors, not only with relationships with other people, but also for your career. Being able to clearly enunciate your thoughts and present yourself with confidence will impress employers. In terms of Valentine’s day, dental implants can help you have the courage to go up to your crush and tell them how you feel, do a little bit of kissing, eating chocolate, or anything else within reason.
Many people do not realize the complications that can befall neglect of oral hygiene. If a bacterial infection seeps into the gums, it can travel into the blood stream and affect organs such as the heart, lungs, and kidneys. The mouth is the gateway to the overall health of your body and if poor oral health is practiced, it will negatively affect your overall health.
