Kissing is good for your teeth.
Did your dentist mention this one with brushing and flossing? Kissing is good for your teeth.
When you kiss someone, your mouth produces more saliva. Dental experts have found that “swapping spit” helps sweep away the plaque and bacteria that develop on teeth, preventing tooth decay.
While it’s probably not a substitute for brushing after meals, kissing does have other health benefits. It’s been proven that a good smooch boosts immunity, produces hormones that make you feel happy, and increases self-esteem too – so share the love!
