brush your teeth

With the wide range of mint sprays, mouth fresheners and other minty mouthwashes present in the market today make people think that they got rid of the duty of brushing their teeth regularly but at least one time a day. Below mentioned are the top five reasons that why you should brush your teeth daily no matter what is your age.

  1. Bacteria

Bacteria is produced in your mouth in a short period of time and it keeps producing after very short periods of time. When you brush your teeth twice a day, you basically destroy the bacteria from your mouth in order to make it clean. Bacteria, if left in your mouth for twenty four hours, results in damaging the enamel of your tooth that gradually weakens the gums and roots resulting in the decay of teeth. Moreover, the removal of bacteria also results in the removal of bad breath and thus you can smile and laugh anytime.

  1. Production of Saliva

You sleep more saliva when you are awake and less saliva when you are asleep. The best thing about saliva is that it adds an additional layer of defense against the plaque and bacteria in your mouth that saves you from leading to the excess cavities. Brushing your teeth in the evening or before sleeping leads you to be safe from the destruction done by bacteria while you produce less saliva. Brushing your teeth makes you safe from the bad breath in the morning by removing the bacteria and acid from your mouth that has been built up overnight.

  1. Prevention of Tartar Build-up

When you do not brush your teeth on a daily basis, then there is a thing called Tartar that attaches itself to your teeth and it does not go away. The only way you can get rid of it is  by scrapping your teeth and that is done by your dentist. Still, if it is left untreated it will result in bad gum infection that will result is excessive bleeding from gums. And it can actually damage your health, overall. If you smoke, or if you are diabetic then you are at a higher risk of getting your health destroyed by the tartar as compared to an average person.
