Take it from this family dentist in Evendale ﹘ most people don’t take care of their teeth. In fact, it shows. Honestly, this is usually due to laziness or ignorance. Many people go to bed without brushing because they put it off until they are too exhausted. A better solution would be to brush about an hour before planning to go to bed to get it out of the way. It’s also common for our patients to sometimes brush too hard, which can wear away the enamel on their teeth. Many also brush up and down, instead of the circular motion we recommend. And too many don’t floss regularly. One trick is brush and floss your teeth during your morning shower as you wait for the conditioner to set. Swishing with mouthwash or salt water is also recommended.
