If you’re thinking about being romantic tonight, you might want to floss and brush your teeth. Based on the Waterpik® Sexy Smile survey, oral hygiene is significantly preferred over the traditional romantic overtures to set the mood, such as dimming the lights, lighting candles, wearing perfume, or playing romantic music. That's why, as a Utah Family Dentist we recommend a cleaning every six months. The national survey examined Americans’ views on oral healthcare and revealed that a clean mouth was most important in maintaining a healthy relationship. Close to six in ten, or 59 percent, would be most disturbed by their partner not brushing or flossing his or her teeth, as compared to only 24 percent who would be most perturbed if their significant other passed on wearing deodorant! So spend a little more time on your smile to woo that special someone in your life.
