Failure to Brush Your Teeth at Night Has Adverse Consequences

Brushing teeth in the evening is more important than brushing in the morning only. It will help avoid problems such as cavities and gum disease.

Key takeaways:

  • Bad breath is one negative from failing to brush teeth.  Bacteria in the mouth survive on particles between teeth causing foul smell.
  • Gum disease can be caused by failure to brush teeth regularly. Bleeding gums when brushing or flossing is a sign of gum disease.
  • Brushing your teeth at least once every day will help protect against full blown gum disease. Plaque buildup happens within a period of 24 hours.

The buildup of plaque that causes gum disease takes at least 24 hours to develop, so if you’re brushing once a day, you’ll disrupt the bacteria before it gets a chance to really screw up your gums.
