You Could Hurt Your Partner If You Don’t Brush Your Teeth – Here’s How

You’ve probably read this many times that brushing and flossing your teeth every day is essential for good oral health. But if you are someone who doesn’t brush their teeth regularly, or don’t brush at all, here is what happens to you and how you can hurt your partner in the process.

Why Is It So Important To Brush Teeth Daily?

  • Did you know that about 32 percent of adults in the U.S have cavities? While tooth decay and cavities can occur even if you routinely brush your teeth, one of the best ways to ensure that you don’t get either is to regularly visit your dentist for periodontal therapy

So back to our question, what happens if you don’t brush your teeth? How does it affect your significant other?

  • According to research, there are more than 300 specific types of bacteria living in your mouth at all times. When you stop brushing your teeth, these bacteria start ingesting what you eat and ultimately cause tooth decay.

Worst of all, if you don’t brush your teeth regularly, the bacteria can spread to your partner through kissing or even direct contact. So it is very important to brush your teeth daily if you value the health of your partner.

  • Dentists at Vitarelli Dental, Saddle River recommend never skipping on brushing because skipping it can have heavy consequences even if it was for one night (or morning). By not following good oral hygiene practices, the risk of bone and tissue damage around your teeth significantly increases. 

The Many Benefits of Brushing Your Teeth Daily

  • Some people are naturally at a high risk of developing cavities and tooth decay. So it is a good idea to get in touch with your dentist and get a complete exam to see the real picture. Those who suffer from autoimmune disease are at a higher risk of developing gum disease (periodontal disease) and tooth decay leading to tooth extraction. This is why maintaining good oral health is critical for you.

You can easily reduce the number of bacteria residing in your mouth significantly by brushing and flossing your teeth daily. This simple two-minute habit will help keep your teeth and gums strong and healthy for a long time to come. 

  • If you are someone who travels a lot, it is a good idea to always have your toothbrush in your travel bag and toothpaste that works for your teeth. 

Consistent oral care can help you save a lot of trouble and can even cut down visits to the dentist office especially for bigger problems that require a lot of strict measures by the dentist including drilling.
