Why You Should Brush Your Teeth Before Bed

Too tired to brush your teeth before bed? Well it’ll mean you’ll be on your way to encouraging the growth of bacterial buildup in the form of plaque, which can lead to cavities and gum disease.

Brushing at night disrupts the bacteria that builds up on your teeth throughout the day. This helps to prevent the build up of plaque and tartar, thereby meaning your teeth and gums are healthier (and you’re less likely to develop gum disease and potentially even lose teeth later on).

It’s important to see your dentist and/or oral health therapist regularly to clean away what brushing and flossing alone cannot.
