Many patients understand that tooth brushing is important to maintain oral health, but they don’t necessarily know how important it is to brush before going to bed. During your regular dental checkups and teeth cleanings, a dentist or hygienist can help you make the most of your at-home dental care plan. In this post, we’ll discuss the importance of maintaining tooth brushing and flossing routines, especially before you get some shut eye. You may be fast asleep, but oral bacteria are hard at work, creating plaque that can damage your teeth and gums.
