Now can we move to the topic??
While it may seem tempting to skip brushing your teeth at night, if you’re already comfortably lying in bed, the importance of brushing your teeth twice a day goes beyond fresh breath. Skipping brushing at night because you don’t want to get up or don’t think it’s worth it can cause major problems for your teeth in the long run.
Brushing your teeth at least twice within a 24-hour period is extremely important. Every time you skip brushing your teeth, you are encouraging the buildup of bacteria that would’ve been destroyed with an easy, two-minute brush.
Dentists claim brushing before bed is the most important time to brush because at night, your saliva production decreases. Saliva is the mouth’s natural defense against bacteria in the mouth because it has anti-bacterial properties, neutralizes the acid level in your mouth, and washes away food remnants.
