Why You Should Never Skip Brushing Your Teeth

By Genevieve Cunningham

We’ve all been guilty of it. We get home late after a night out or overtime at work, and we pass out in the same clothes, hair still styled, and teeth unbrushed. While the occasional night of skipping your teeth brushing ritual probably won’t hurt, the more this happens, the more likely you’re damaging your teeth for good. If you don’t take your oral health as seriously as you should, take a look at these reasons to never skip the teeth brushing habit.

It Prevents Gum Disease

Gum disease is a nasty disease to deal with. It can cause receding gums, which then exposes the roots of the teeth. It can also cause bleeding in the mouth, sensitive gums and teeth, and a less than appealing appearance. But the real problem is that gum disease has been linked to a higher risk of heart disease. Brushing your teeth at least twice a day can lower the risk of gum disease, thus lowering the risk of heart disease as well.

It Keeps Your Breath Fresh and Teeth White

No one wants to walk around with stained teeth and bad breath. But if you’re in the habit of skipping the brush, you’re much more likely to suffer from these conditions. Brushing knocks away plaque, which is what causes bad bacteria to grow and create bad breath. It also removes food and drink from the teeth’s enamel, lowering the chance of stains sticking around for good and yellowing the teeth.

It Might Save You Money

You may not realize the significance of tooth health when you’re young, but as you age, you’ll quickly understand the importance. Taking care of your teeth now can help to prevent major problems with your teeth as you get older. And tooth problems can be incredibly expensive. By brushing as you should, you may save quite a bit of money on repair in the future.

Many people take their teeth for granted. They imagine that they’ll always look and feel as they do at this very moment, but that’s not necessarily the case. Brushing your teeth is not an option, or at least, it shouldn’t be. Brush at least twice a day and be proactive about oral health to keep your pearly whites strong, healthy, and part of a beautiful smile.
