Mouths Need Love Too on Valentine’s Day

Heart-shaped chocholates

This month, as you’re celebrating all things love, don’t forget to treat your mouth to some extra TLC, too. One of the hardest-working parts of your body, your mouth does a lot for you – doesn’t it deserve some love, too?

Whitening Treatments

Teeth whitening is a quick and easy way to show your teeth some love. Why not get them brightened up so you can show off that beautiful smile? Looking for a little more? Consider getting veneers. Veneers offer a more permanent white and can even change the shape of broken or misshapen teeth.

Water Flosser

If you’re looking for a way to give your teeth a nice, relaxing massage, consider investing in a Waterpik or another brand of gum massager. It will not only make your gums feel good, but it will floss them, too.

Full-Mouth Reconstruction

Full-mouth reconstruction is the ultimate gift of love to your mouth. Whether it’s braces, bridges, implants, veneers or all of the above, a complete smile makeover can give your teeth the royal treatment – and give you the smile of your dreams.

Facial Massage

A facial massage – especially a jaw massage – is a soothing way to treat your mouth. As an added bonus it may also help with temporomandibular joint disorder symptoms, but speak with Dr. George before getting a jaw massage if you have a temporomandibular joint disorder diagnosis.


Go ahead, indulge in a piece of dark chocolate. Dark chocolate is packed with antioxidants, tastes delicious, and is one of the safest types of candy for your teeth. Just remember to brush afterward!

For more information about full-mouth reconstruction or any other dental questions, please call Dr. George’s office at 724-220-2347.
