Can Kissing Someone with Bad Teeth Lead to CAVITIES?

With Valentines Day fast approaching I thought I would throw a little kissing information your way!


Kissing CAN spread cavities (as well as gum disease and cold sores)!




Although the bacteria responsible for cavities CAN be transmitted via kissing… the presence of this bad bacteria in your mouth does not AUTOMATICALLY mean you will get cavities!


Your defense is your dental hygiene! Maintaining good oral hygiene habits at home and staying on top of your dental visits will INCREASE your mouth’s DEFENSE against dental disease.

Request an appointment and be kiss ready for Valentine's day!
