Is It Critical to Brush Before Sleeping?


Posted on 6/7/2021 by Dynamic Dental Office
Is It Critical to Brush Before Sleeping?You just had a late night out enjoying your friends, and all you can think about is sleep when you walk in the door. Every step toward the bedroom seems laborious, and you wonder how bad it would be if you collapsed in your bed and didn't brush your teeth. Faced with this dilemma, think twice before you sleep.

What Happens in Your Mouth When You Sleep


If you skip brushing your teeth, you will get a couple extra minutes of sleep. However, those extra minutes of sleep cannot make up for the germs and plaque that grew in your mouth overnight. Plaque hardens to form tartar, and this can happen overnight. As tartar accumulates, you are on the fast track to tooth decay.

While skipping your evening tooth brushing routine every once so often will not deter you too far off the course, we suggest brushing your teeth every night. In fact, we suggest brushing your teeth and tongue for two minutes twice a day with a soft bristled toothbrush. Use a toothpaste that contains fluoride as it works proactively against tooth decay. Flossing once a day is important as well. Flossing stimulates your gums and reduces bacteria. Maintaining a good oral hygiene routine will help to safeguard you against tooth decay and gum disease.

Make Sure to Schedule Your Routine Dental Exams


It is a good idea to brush your teeth regularly, and it is crucial to brush your teeth before bed. We also want to stress the importance of scheduling your routine dental exams and cleanings. Even though you brush your teeth, tartar can still form in some remote places. Our experienced staff is ready to assess your mouth, clean your teeth and gums, and help you with your oral hygiene routine.
