3 Ways Poor Dental Hygiene Can Ruin Your Intimacy



3 Ways Poor Dental Hygiene Can Ruin Your Intimacy

Everyone knows how important it is to keep your teeth and gums healthy and germ-free. However, there are plenty of reasons, besides overall oral health, to practice good dental hygiene – and one of them is to ensure you don’t run into any problems with intimacy. Don’t believe us? Check out the following 3 ways poor dental hygiene can ruin your chances romantically, perhaps without you even realizing it.

You Won’t Get Far Without a Nice Smile

Having a set of sparkling pearly whites is one of the most important aspects of any intimate relationship. In fact, not having healthy teeth can destroy an intimate relationship even before it starts – both men and women say that a great smile is the most important thing for someone to have in order to be considered as a romantic partner.

Having an unattractive smile can result from many things. Bad habits like smoking or drinking too much coffee can rob your chompers of their pearly white sheen. Thankfully, brushing regularly with a whitening toothpaste – or visiting your local dentist for some tooth whitening treatments – can do wonders for your smile and your love life.

Bad Breath Will Do More Than Make Flowers Wilt

Bad breath is obviously a deal-breaker when it comes to being intimate. It goes further than skipping the garlic-and-onion pizza over lunch, though – truly persistent bad breath can – and often is – a sign that you’re suffering from poor oral hygiene. Nobody is going to want to pucker up with you if you’ve got seriously bad breath; thankfully the solution is often as easy as just ensuring that you brush regularly.

Why is poor oral hygiene linked with bad breath? When you don’t spend enough time brushing or flossing regularly, this often results in a build-up of unhelpful “bad” bacteria in your mouth. This accumulating bacteria, if left unchecked, begin releasing volatile – and pungent – organic compounds that give you the kind of breath that can wilt flowers.  Not only that, but these same bacteria can lead to any number of oral health issues, which makes it even more important to practice good dental hygiene.

Lack of Sexual Performance

If there’s one thing that will always cause people to sit up and take notice, it’s anything that causes a lack of sexual performance. In this instance, there’s research that shows there’s a close correlation between an inability to perform and poor oral hygiene.

This one is likely to be a surprise to many, but the truth is that men with gum disease, especially those under the age of 40, also suffer from erectile dysfunction more often than those who do not.  In fact, they’re twice as likely to suffer from a lack of sexual performance as men who don’t suffer from the same types of oral health problems. Now if that isn’t motivation to brush your teeth, we don’t know what is!

There are, thankfully, ways to treat all these issues to avoid them becoming problems for your love life. Sometimes just regular brushing and flossing is enough to turn the tide. Other times, you might need a little help – and we recommend contacting your family dentist for aid in treating your own oral health issues.

You don’t have to be relegated to a lonely life, devoid of intimacy. It’s never too late to start turning things around when it comes to good oral health. Making a commitment to better dental hygiene today can lead to more intimacy in your own life with partners new and old. Take command of your love life today!

How Did Cheap Credit Card Processing Change Small Businesses?

In the past, for a business to offer credit card processing they had to pay a pretty penny. Some processing companies require setup fees and equipment rental payments while others charge fees for processing each credit or debit card. Such fees can add up and lead to many small businesses not being able to process credit/debit card transactions. This, of course, leads to the loss of customers which can be detrimental to the business.

Thankfully, cheap credit card processing options have entered the picture and merchant services are offered at a premium.  Small businesses can sign up for merchant accounts and have access to POS solutions with no fees and little to no startup cost. Such companies as Merchant Account Solutions have made it easy for small businesses to begin to accept credit and debit card payments.

Small businesses have several options with such companies as MAS including mobile payment solutions, credit card readers, and tablet devices. You also have the option to integrate additional features based on what your business requires. Small businesses have benefited greatly from installing such systems for credit card and debit card payments. wo

How Has This Changed Small Businesses?

With the affordable credit card processing services, small businesses can compete with medium to large competitors. In the past, without credit/debit card transaction options, small businesses would lose customers. Trying to keep up with fees from processing companies has led to many businesses closing up shop. Now that a cheap option is on offer, small businesses can thrive and grow, providing the same great payment methods as their larger competitors.

Overall, small businesses have a better success rate when being able to accept credit and debit card payments. By working with such companies as Merchant Account Solutions, these businesses can offer the same payment methods, which create return customers and a thriving business.

Wireless sound system is the best method today in the music and entertainment industry, gone are the days when cords and cables were attached to every machine when doing programs on stage and other activities that need sound systems, resulting in a tedious set-up, time consuming tasks and limited movements on stage.

Saving Money to be a Stay at Home Mom

At one time, it was almost a given that moms would be stay-at-home moms. In fact, it was actually a given that women would stay home in general. Now, with more and more women entering the workforce couples often plan their lives around having two salaries and it can be a severe hardship to go from two salaries to one. For women who want to be stay-at-home moms, it often takes a great deal of saving, budgeting and financial discipline to make it happen – but it is certainly possible. Here are 4 great ways to save money in order to fulfill your dream of being a stay-at-home mom.

1. Stop eating out regularly

When you work a full-time job, it’s hard to find time for cooking and meal prep, but eating out can cost up to 3 times what preparing the same meal for yourself may cost. There are a vast number of ways to make quick, easy, inexpensive meals that will help you save money on food expenses. Slow cooker meals in particular are great because you can generally throw the ingredients in the cooker in the morning, have a full, complete, home-cooked meal when you get home and still have enough left-over’s to take for lunch the next day. There is almost no limit to the wide variety of meals you can make in a slow cooker, so you can make a slow cooker meal every day and still enjoy a vast variety of dishes. Of course you don’t have to cut out eating out entirely, but save it for date night or a few special occasions. Eating out may even become a special treat once again instead of the same daily ho-hum event.

2. Cut the cable

With the wide number of free and low cost apps available today ranging from Hulu to Netflix to HBO and Showtime paid apps, it’s easier than ever to save a great deal of money every month on the cable bill. Just be careful, however, because those monthly bills add up and you could end up spending more on apps than you did on cable. Most of them offer month to month subscriptions, however, so you can also rotate which ones you want each month.

3. Do some work online

No matter how much you scrimp, save, pinch or cut back, there are always going to be lean times or times you need money fast. There has never been a better time for stay-at-home moms who need to make money fast to do just that. From photography skills to writing to admin skills, you can market your skills online through a wide variety of platforms. Best of all, with many online platforms you can often get paid the same week you start working.

4. Set up an automatic deposit to put a certain amount of each paycheck into savings

If you already use automatic deposit at your work, you can generally have your employer automatically deposit a certain amount of your paycheck into a savings account each pay period and the rest into a checking account. Money is often easiest to save if it never passes through your hands in the first place. If you can’t set up an automatic deposit into savings through your employer, try doing the same thing through your bank instead.



The most wonderful woman in our life


This is my mother and we call her Nanay (mother), she’s going to be 83 this August, though she’s not as strong as before (cannot walk longer than 5 minutes because of arthritis, feeling pain on her knee). She’s still the same nanay, a disciplinarian to grandkids but very sweet at the same time though sometimes a little bit cranky, lol. Our inspiration who never gets tired of guiding us and gives advice whenever we needed one.

Mama dear

To our Nanay, a happy happy Mother’s day, although everyday is a mother’s day because of the love you always showered us. You keep the bond of our family very tight even if some of the members are residing thousand miles away, your love keep us close together. I’m just hoping that we can have a family get-together where everyone is present and have a party with lots of music, with instruments bought from http://www.musiciansfriend.com/clarinets/new.
