FLOSS!

This is actually quite important! Bits of spinach between your teeth are a sure-fire turn-off for any potential tonsil-tennis partner. If you don’t know how to floss, ask your dentist or hygienist to show you how – or to recommend an easier alternative.

BRUSH!

You remember that furry bit on the end of your toothbrush? Use it! Scrub those toothy-pegs in small circular movements close to the gum, or, for best effect, use an electric toothbrush. Your dentist or hygienist will be able to recommend a good one.

RINSE!

“What do you get when you kiss a girl?” as the song says “You get enough germs to catch pneumonia..” Use a mouthwash to cut down on bacteria that might be lurking behind your gums.

VISIT!

your dentist at regular intervals, whether you think you need it or not. If you have fillings, your dentist will want to check them to ensure they’re not going to fall out any time soon. He/She will also check how healthy your gums are – these are the foundation of your smile.

ASK!

and you shall receive.. well, maybe not a kiss, but if you are unhappy with your smile, just ask your dentist what can be done. Perhaps a whiter smile would give you the ultimate kissable mouth?
