Most of us brush our teeth twice a day.Everyone brush his teeth in the morning,it is a good habit.According to some doctors' advices,we should our teeth at least two times a day in order to keep healthy,we should brush teeth the second time at the night.However, some people get home in the evening. They are too tired to brush their teeth .Although work is very important,health is more important.We should develop the habit of brushing teeth at night. Do you brush your teeth at night?

It is just plain nasty when people don't brush in the morning, but I confess I have been guilt of not brushing at night. Although, there are a number of reasons to brush at night there are many who do not. If for no other reason think of all that food and drink during the day. Do you really want the remanence of that fish you had for lunch to go to bed with you at night. What if you have a sweetie? You think that's cool for that fish to come back to bite them in the nose. PEEEEWW!! That's gotta stink.

Yes, I do brush my teeth every night. It is especially more important I think because my teeth have accumulated particles of food and drink throughout the entire day. I don't think I could go to bed without that clean taste in my mouth.. :-) Derek

I have got into the habit of brushing my teeth before I sleep even if it is a nap. If I do not I wake up with a bad taste in my mouth and if I brush I do not. Besides if you sleep with food especially sugar in your mouth it promotes tooth decay as you as not refreshing your mouth with new saliva.

Thats when I usually brush my teeth is at night before I go to bed, sometimes I brush them during the day, it just depends on what I'm doing or where I'm going. We all need to keep better teeth habits.

Every night and every morning! I used to floss everyday as well but I became lazy with this and so I stopped! When I brush my teeth I normally rush right through as I find it boring! I know this sounds ridiculous but all the same, it's not an activity that I enjoy. My teeth are in good condition though and I do look after them. I just hope that I don't end up having to wear those false teeth when I get old! Andrew

Yes, I do brush my teeth twice or thrice a day, but usually, at morning and before I sleep at night. No matter what happens, too sleepy or not, I always brush my teeth at night. It's kinda become a nightly ritual that I'll do before sleeping,that is, washing my face and brushing my teeth.

Doesn't everyone brush at night? i think bushing twice a day is a must. How can you go to sleep at night without brushing or rinsing with a mouthwash?! Anyway, I only don't brush when I'm very sick and can barely walk. Once I was confined in the hospital and was too groggy to care about bad breath haha but otherwise, I'd make time to brush my teeth. :)

Of course,I brush my teeth twice a day,once in the morning when I get up,the other at the night before I go to bed. I have done like this from my childhood.This is a good habit. I agree with you,work is important,but health is more important.After all,a good health is the capital of the revolution. So,I strongly advise those who only brush their teeth once a day to develop the good habit of brushing teeth before you go to bed every night. Thanks!

I think it's a good habit to brush at night. it keeps our teeth clean and healthy. but can you believe that someone seldom brush his teeth throughout his life?maybe it's really hard to understand it, but it do exist and he never feel uncomfortable. so i insist forming a good habit is rather paramount.

Yes, of course, I brush my teeth every morning and every night before going to sleep. I can't sleep if i don't brush my teeth evern do there are times that i get home late and too tired to do it. I still manage to brush. Also, i am used to brushing my teeth before sleeping because ever since I was young, my mother taught me to do so. I grew with that habit. And I believe that it's really an important part of everyday hygiene.

yes, I do brush my teeth at night before I got to bed. Not only because it is what the dentist said but also because it is necessary to keep our teeth healthy and clean. Even if I am tired, I really cannot go to bed without brushing my teeth. It is already a part of my life and I guess I just get used to it because my parents always tell me to do so even I was still a little kid.

I definitely wash my teeth at night. I could never sleep without brushing my teeth however tired i might be. I brush my teeth an average of five times a day. It feels good and fresh to brush my teeth. My parents have always taught me when I was younger that your teeth can reflect your personality and how you were brought up, so I took care of it. I had my braces when I was in high school, visited my dentist regularly, brushed and flossed my teeth about five times a day.
