Why Brushing Your Teeth at Night Is Crucial for Your Oral Health

You have probably heard your dentist advise you to brush and floss your teeth every night. In fact, brushing your teeth each evening is crucial for preventative dentistry and maintaining your overall health.

Teeth cleaning before bed is so important because your mouth naturally gets dry at night. Unfortunately, bacteria flourish in dry environments. If you do not use a toothpaste with fluoride, bacteria build-up can cause plaque, which leads to gingivitis and tooth decay. It is also vital to schedule regular professional cleanings with a dentist.
