Tooth brushing seems to be a simple hygienic procedure, but, as it turns out, many of us are getting it wrong. Below we list three most common mistakes people make regarding oral care.
1. Brushing teeth only in the morning
Brushing teeth only in the morning is probably the most common mistake people make when it comes to oral care. Brushing your teeth after the last meal of the day before going to sleep is just as important (or even more important) as brushing them in the morning. During the day, your teeth are cleansed by drinking water and chewing food. But at night, the teeth are immersed in saliva and are "at rest", so to say. The saliva contains carbs from food residue, so the teeth sit in the perfect breeding ground for cavity-causing bacteria.
