Some people kiss in greeting or parting. Some kiss romantically. Some kiss their parents or kids. No matter what kind of kissing you’re involved in, you can probably agree that this is an intimate act that shows love between family, friends, and/or romantic partners.
You therefore want to make sure that the kiss you’re giving isn’t going to offend the receiving party. In other words, you need to consider how best to maintain a kissable mouth so that your loved ones keep coming back for more. Here are a few tips to keep your lips and every other part of your mouth in kissable form.
Think about what might make a mouth less than desirable when it comes to kissing. Would you want to kiss someone that smelled like garlic and fish? What about an ash tray? Would you want to kiss someone with a dry mouth, or someone with tartar and plaque buildup? What about misaligned or missing teeth?
You can’t always judge a book by its cover, but there’s no denying the appeal of a clean mouth and a beautiful smile. If you want to encourage others to kiss you, it’s best to start by pinpointing potential problem areas where your oral health is concerned so that you can correct them and get your mouth in ship shape.
Prioritize Oral Hygiene
If having a kissable mouth is a priority, you have to do your part to maintain both the health and appearance of your oral edifice. Good oral hygiene is practically a prerequisite to being kissable, so you need to make a habit of brushing, flossing, and rinsing with mouthwash frequently.
Ideally, you should clean up your mouth after every meal to clear away remaining food particles and prevent the buildup of odor-causing bacteria. This will also help you to avoid unsightly and dangerous oral health issues like tartar and plaque, as well as more serious conditions like cavities and gum disease. A clean and healthy mouth begs to be kissed.
Rely on Your Dentist
Even if you feel like you’ve got a pretty good handle on your oral health, nobody can keep your mouth healthy and well like a dental professional. You need regular check-ups, cleanings, and x-rays to maintain proper oral health and a beautiful smile.
Don’t forget that your dentist can also help you with cosmetic issues like an overbite, misaligned teeth, or even missing teeth. Don’t hesitate to discuss options like veneers or braces if you want to correct cosmetic problems and make your mouth as kissable as possible.
