Five reasons why you should brush your teeth twice a day

Your mum said it and I was preached in school – brushing your teeth twice a day should be a vital thing in your day, such as eating. However, how important is it to keep your teeth clean and fresh all the time? Here is a list of the five most important reasons why you shouldn’t avoid brushing your teeth twice a day:

Prevent gum disease

One of the major reasons are the risk of plaque building up on your teeth if you don’t brush your teeth regularly. Plaque is basically a collection of bacteria and food that occurs in everyone’s mouth. Due to this plaque your base of the teeth can build a yellow lining, which is also called Gingivitis. This can often lead to the first stage of gum disease, which automatically causes inflammation of your gums and starts bleeding when you brush them.

Maintain a fresh breath

Another fact is the build up of bad and faulty breath, due to not brushing your teeth regularly. Bacteria can stick iin your mouth and cause various oral health issues. Therefore, preventing those build ups of bacteria is vital. Hence, make sure you brush your teeth twice a day and start getting into the habit of chewing sugar free gum after each meal.

Removing tooth stains

Brushing your teeth twice a day can help remove those teeth stains, as any toothpaste contains mild abrasives, which removes debris and surface stains. These include calcium carbonate, aluminium oxides dehydrated silicia gels, phosphate salts hydrated and silicates.


It is unavoidable that it is quite unattractive to kiss someone with a smelly breath and/or faulty teeth. Hence, just brushing your teeth more often will effectively remove all stains and bacterias and make your counter part appreciate definitely.

Prevent Dementia

It is scientifically proven that poor gum health can lead to the development of dementis by at least 30% to 40%. So be careful and don’t get lazy – it is for your own future!
