Learn What Happens When You Fail To Brush Your Teeth

 teeth health smile dentistFailure to brush the teeth leads to proliferation of bacteria in the mouth. Food debris left in the mouth will promote growth and multiplication of bacteria, a potential cause of health problems.

Key takeaways:

– The golden rule is to brush your teeth twice every day using a soft bristled brush and fluoride toothpaste. It should take you two minutes to brush your teeth.

– Plaque accumulation when you do not brush will cause tooth decay and other irreparable damage to the structure of your teeth.

– Staining of teeth is yet another consequence of not brushing your teeth. Color from food and drinks will stain teeth if not brushed away.

Brush teeth twice a day for at least two minutes, in the morning before breakfast and in the evening before you go to sleep.
