From the “Kiss Me” messages on tiny candy hearts to romantic songs on the radio, a kiss is probably on your list this Valentine’s Day. Before cozying up to your loved one this year, make sure your mouth is in good health because, as it turns out, a kiss is more than just a kiss.

Kissing stimulates saliva, which can help fight cavities. However, if the person you’re kissing has poor dental and overall health, you run the risk of getting unwanted germs, illnesses or diseases instead of candy, flowers or cards this Valentine’s Day.

Here’s what you need to know about making your smile a vision of love for February 14.

Cavities Can Be Contagious

Whether through kissing or something as simple as sharing a fork, the bacteria that causes cavities can spread to another person. Brush twice a day for two minutes and clean between your teeth once a day for cleaner kisses and a cavity-free smile.

Beware Bad Breath

Bacteria is a big culprit of bad breath, so regular habits like brushing and flossing are especially important. Other ways to stay fresh are over-the-counter antimicrobial mouthwashes or chewing sugarless gum. Both can freshen your breath instantly and get saliva flowing—especially after you eat foods with a strong scent. (And look for the ADA Seal of Acceptance on both!)

Share a Life (But Not a Toothbrush)

For many couples, a big relationship step is keeping a toothbrush at each other’s place. Just make sure you each have your own because sharing toothbrushes also means sharing germs.

Inflammation and your overall health

Is your mouth putting you at risk of heart attack or stroke? There is advanced research that has exhibited that healthy gums help prevent heart attacks and strokes so profoundly that The Journal of Periodontology and The American Journal of Cardiology issued a statement recommending that:
  • Doctors and Dentists warn patients with moderate to severe gum disease of their potential cardiovascular risks.
  • Patients with gum disease should get a complete physical exam and blood pressure measurements annually.
  • Patients should be evaluated for diabetes, high blood pressure and a family history of early deaths from cardiovascular disease.
  • Patients will need to be evaluated by their Dentist or Dental Hygienist frequently for periodontal cleanings to lower the number or bacterial load.

Obviously, these patients with gum disease and one or more other cardiovascular risk factors, such as high blood pressure or high cholesterol, should be treated with lifestyle changes, and if necessary, medication. There are additional ways to evaluate your oral health, including saliva testing to determine if there are dangerous oral bacteria that may also harm your heart. This is a very powerful tool for using genetic information that can determine if you have an oral health problem – EVEN before you develop the signs and symptoms of gum disease. Gum disease along with increased levels of LDLs (the bad cholesterol) can cause a cascade of more and more plaque accumulation in the walls of the blood vessels, thus creating what we’ve termed an “Inflammatory Burden” on the body that can have devastating consequences.

Oral Cancer

Please take a moment to read about Oral Cancer.
Oral cancer is the sixth most common cancer among men.
www.webmd.com/cancer/oral-cancer#1

Important:

Risk factors for oral cancer include:

  • Smoking. Cigarette, cigar, or pipe smokers are six times more likely than nonsmokers to develop oral cancers.
  • Smokeless tobacco users. Users of snuff or chewing tobacco increase their risk of cancer to the oral cavity.
  • Excessive consumption of alcohol. Oral cancers are about six times more common in drinkers than in nondrinkers. Although alcohol is less potent than tobacco in causing oral cancers, the combination of alcohol with tobacco results in a much higher risk of developing oral cancers, compared to either agent alone.
  • Family history of cancer.
  • Excessive sun exposure for lip cancer.
  • Poor dietary habits.
  • Smoking marijuana.
