Dentists Share the Best Nighttime Habits that can Improve Oral Health


You might think that your body is merely getting its well-deserved rest while you’re sleeping, but the bacteria on your teeth have other ideas. Even during the night, bacteria can still gather on your teeth, leading to dental problems like cavities, tartar, and gingivitis.

Fortunately, these dental problems aren’t something to worry about, especially if you follow a healthy dental habit during nighttime. As dentists would tell you, prevention is always better than cure, so make sure that your nighttime routine has all of these habits.

Brush your teeth before going to bed

Since dentists everywhere recommend brushing your teeth twice a day, it’s better if you schedule your second brushing session just before going to bed. Doing so can prevent bacteria from sitting and forming on your teeth overnight.
