Two Hints For When You’re Too Tired To Brush

Chesterfield gentle dentist

Too tired to touch a toothbrush? We’ve all been there. At Koch Park Dental in Florissant MO, we have two quick ideas to overcome your exhaustion and pick up your toothbrush.

Idea #1 Drag Tongue Along Teeth

As you lie there in bed after a long hard day and realize you forgot to brush, drag your tongue over your teeth a few times. As you do, visualize plaque: that filmy stuff on the teeth and gum-line. It’s loaded with the bacteria that cause cavities and gum disease. Then, jump up and give your mouth just two minutes of gentle, thorough cleaning.

Idea #2 Scrutinize the Food You Eat

Another convenient and uncomplicated approach is to pay attention to what’s going into your mouth throughout the day. The higher the sugar content, the sooner the teeth will need a brushing to avoid harm. Swish with water after coffee, tea, or soda, if brushing isn’t going to happen soon.

Remember that brushing your teeth is an important part of any daily dental health routine. We recommend brushing twice a day, and with a soft-bristled toothbrush. We strongly recommend flossing, too.

Be sure to get all over your teeth: the front, the sides, the inside, the outside, and the top. Use a pea-sized blob of fluoridated toothpaste – or more than pea-sized, if you’d like. Too much toothpaste is no big deal, but be sure to use enough!

At Koch Park Dental in Florissant MO, we want the best possible dental health for all of our patients. People from Chesterfield, Maryland Heights, and St. Charles come to our practice for general and restorative dentistry. Contact us today!
