Kissing ‘prevents cavities’
As Valentine’s Day approaches those in love may be pleased to hear that kissing reduces the risk of cavities.
Dr Kuorosh Maddahi, Beverly Hills cosmetic dentist, cites a report from the Academy of General Dentistry.
"Kissing stimulates the saliva in the mouth, which helps wash the mouth and reduce the amount of food particles that cause tooth decay," he says.
Tooth whitening can also help cosmetic dentistry patients achieve a brighter smile, he adds, advising that home kits can also be effective.
In addition to this, people wanting to improve their teeth and mouth for Valentine’s Day may want to have injectable filler treatment, facial and reconstructive plastic surgeon Dr Paul S Nassif claims.
He recommends that fillers will not only plump up lips but also treat the creases and lines surrounding the mouth.
Dr Ronald Linden from US firm White Hills Family Dental claimed that although there has been no research conducted, the likelihood of a kissoccurring will probably be increased if someone takes care of their teeth.Join this Discussion
