First, how’s your breath? Is it as sweet as it can be? Today might be a good day to rethink those raw onions or garlic-laden dishes at lunch or dinner. More important, today might be the day to renew your commitment to good oral health: twice-daily brushing and flossing, regular check-ups, and perhaps the extra dash of a refreshing, antioxidant gel (AO ProVantage!) or rinse (AO ProRinse).
Second, how’s your smile? Do you have healthy teeth, lips and gums that signal to the world—or to that special someone—that you’re attractive and interesting? Today might be a good day to make an appointment with your dentist. Regular check-ups and cleaning can help keep your smile in top condition. Talk to your dentist, too, about ideas for making your smile even more alluring. Cosmetic dentistry runs the gamut from simple whitening all the way to teeth-straightening, veneers, and other procedures. Be aware, though, that most dental procedures can increase the level of free radicals in your oral tissues—leading to inflammation and tissue damage. Counteract the free radicals with antioxidants, like the phloretin and ferulic acid in naturally-sourced AO ProVantage products.
Third, we just have to ask, are you still smoking or using tobacco products? Unless your sweetie enjoys kissing an ashtray, you know this is a bad idea. Not only is tobacco-breath nasty, but nicotine is extremely dangerous for your oral tissues. If you just have to smoke, by all means, get yourself some AO ProVantage BLAST. It’s formulated to rinse away some of the bad breath from tobacco and to counteract the free radicals caused by nicotine. And think about committing to quit smoking as a Valentine’s Day gift to yourself or your loved ones.
Speaking of Valentine’s Day gifts, AO ProVantage products might not be your first thought, but after the candy, champagne, onion soup and garlic-laced pasta, a bottle of refreshing antioxidant oral gel might be just as welcome as a bunch of flowers. After all, it’s a loving way to help your sweetie (or yourself) maximize sweet breath and healthy mouth—and overall health and well-being.
