How often do you brush your teeth?

    er...any dentist on board? Personally I brush my teeth at least 5x a day, and especially after I've eaten food, no matter how little the amount(unless I'm out having dinner). I would guess that you should brush your teeth once you wake up, after every meal/merienda, and before going to sleep, to keep plaques from accumulating.

    Yikes, Ira! It's bad to brush your teeth TOO MUCH! Something in the toothpaste 'melts' away the enamel of the teeth if you brush too much.

    I brush my teeth twice a day, sometimes three. I used to brush it thrice a day daily, but after I was told it's bad to brush too much, I now do it twice a day.

    jack: hmmm, depends how often you kiss :), dont ask me kung before or after the kiss, tho...
  • jackjack Cebu Blogger PExer
    well ako... once, twice or thrice a DAY but definitely not 5.

    ira: grabe pala ang compulsion mo in cleaning your teeth.

    aira: so, hoften do you kiss?

    caramba: really? oh well, may excuse na ako not to brush my teeth often :)

    my dentist told me that too much fluoride, from toothpastes, can be harmful to your teeth. i brush my teeth three times a day.
  • IraIra Member PExer
    Too much ba? hehe...I like the freshly-brushed-teeth taste eh. :)

    'kala ko ba forum ni Doc Ira 'to...nabaligtad na yata...hehe :)

    'kung sa bagay..dentistry na ang pinag-uusapan dito..hindi na sakop ng medicine...

    LOL...I do not know anything about dentistry, definitely! I see my dentist annually (I know, it's supposed to be 2x a year), and that's one time too many pa in my opinion. I have had dentist phobia ever since my braces period, and the less seen and known about them the better for me. ;)

    i brush thrice a day. when i wake up, after lunch and before bedtime.

    that's what my dentist told me when i was 10.

    Twice a day ok na. It's very important to brush before going to bed at night...kasi mas acidic ang saliva sa gabi...
    doc Ira, sobra na yata ang 5 times daily! Toothpaste contains lots of abrasives which can wear out the enamel pag overzealous ang brushing =).

    Addicted lang ata ako siguro sa lasa ng toothpaste. Look at my very nice grin! -->; :D
