5 facts about kissing ("must not miss" system)

There is no doubt that something strange happens to our body during the kiss - we all feel it, but don't exactly know how to explain to ourselves what it is.

The excitement, the trembling, the butterflies in the stomach, the accelerated pulse - all these are an expression of physical processes that are activated or intensified during the kiss.

Now it turns out that there are dentists who claim that a French kiss is just as good for teeth as brushing - but of course not as a substitute.



Orthodontist Dr. Khaled Kasem claims that people should kiss for 4 minutes a day in addition to brushing and flossing. He told the British Sun: "The main benefit of kissing is that it produces more saliva in your mouth.

Saliva neutralizes the acids that sit on your teeth, which helps reduce the risk of tooth decay.

It can also remove bacteria from your teeth to reduce stubborn plaque.

So keep kissing if you want fresh breath and healthy teeth."

Daily kissing also reduces the risk of infection since bacteria from your partner's saliva strengthen your immune system - and vice versa.

Other health benefits of kissing include stress relief, thanks to the "love hormones" released in a kiss - and a younger appearance that results from the activation of the facial muscles.



There are exceptions: couples may exchange bad bacteria and increase the risk of tooth decay if one of them has dental problems.

Dr Kasem, director of Impress Orthodontics, added: "The only negative effect of kissing is when people are ill, have herpes or already have poor oral hygiene.

Other than that, kiss - but keep brushing and flossing.

It's out of place, it's in addition."



The British Dental Association confirmed and clarified: "Kissing is not a substitute for maintaining the oral hygiene routine."
