do you always brush your teeth or just gargle before going to bed?

brushing your teeth is the number one action you can take to ensure a healthy, beautiful smile. i admit that sometimes i became lazy when it comes on brushing my teeth before going to bed especially when i'm tired, sleepy and lazy. so i just usually end up just gargling some mouthwash

Yeah i'm like you I brush when I get up. But then at night I get so tired and lazy that I just want to drop down onto my bed go to sleep and never wake up. But tehre are times when I go and brush them. My teeth are pretty white considering i don't floss too much and don't brush at night too much. But I've made it my goal to try and floss more and to brush my teeth at night more. But sometimes it's so hard to do that.

LOL. No doubt I understand. But the strange thing is I've never had a cavity or anything and I eat a lot of candy. You have no idea how much candy I eat.

Hello rhane7315, how are you doing? I admit that I sometimes and so tired that I forget (a few times I fall asleep when reading) so sometimes I don't even brush or gargle. Most times I do brush my teeth, floss, and rinse. I'm very good at doing it. If I forget I do it all in the morning. I know, I do need to get better and make sure I brush, floss and rinse at night, right? Pablo

I usually will switch around some water, but that is about it. I am a morning brusher.

I brush my teeth 4 times, once early morning, 2nd time after food, third time around 7pm and the last one before going to bed, the last one is most important, i use some herbal powder too and gargle with Listerine mouthwash.. Thanks for this nice discussion God bless you, have a nice day ahead. Professor ‘@Bhuwan@’. .

Hi. rhane7315. No. I don't usually gargle before going to bed. I do make sure that I do try to at least brush my teeth though. In fact, I want to increase the habit of brushing my teeth more often, because I always seem to forget to do so before I go to sleep.

Hi rhane, I started to do that recently after i had problems with my teeth. I made it a habit to brush teeth twice day and night, so i feel they are taken care!
