    Is it really necessary to brush your teeth everyday?

    I went to the dentist one year after not going for five. I brushed my teeth every now and then for those five years. I gave my teeth a good brushing before the dentist and he told me that my teeth were in the best shape he had seen.

    brushing your teeth everyday is really a must to protect them from dental-causing cavities. in fact, dentists would recommend to brush them at least thrice a day. however, it is good to know that brushing is not the only requirement to keep your teeth in good condition. dental flossing, mouthwashing, and regularly visiting the dentist (once or twice in a year) are also essential.

    If you eat candy, or drink soft-drinks, it's a must. If you consume little sugar, and keep them clean, you will not get cavities. There are only a few strains of bacteria which actually cause cavities to form on tooth enamel. I read about a pro-biotic bacterial strain used to prevent tooth decay without fluoride. It works by overcrowding the micro-flora in your mouth so that the baddies cannot take residence. The "good germs" are administered via sugar-free lollipops. 

    Another big factor in tooth vitality is saliva. a nice wet mouth is healthier for teeth. People with oral dryness are much more likely to develop tooth decay. -My $.02 worth.

      I didnot think of that. I don't eat sugar often if at all and I don't eat candy. I mostly eat veggies. That would explain some things.

    It depends on what kinds of teeth you have, your diet, and general health. If you take the recommended amount of vitamins and calcium and/or eat the proper foods, you should be fine. Some people are prone to bad breath, that can be bad for your teeth. If you don't have enough calcium and/or the vitamins that help calcium be distributed, then your teeth can start decaying from an early age. You seem to be healthy, have the best kind of teeth, and take the right amount of supplements.

    Brushing teeth is not only important for our teeth health, but it is also crucial for our general health since food comes into our body through the one and the only channel, our mouth.

    It depends entirely on your diet.  If the PH in your mouth is always neutral then bacteria can not grow and you will not get tooth decay.  This is why people in certain parts of the world who do not brush their teeth do not have tooth decay.

    But Americans typically eat nothing close to a good diet and to not brush their teeth is just asking for dental disease.

      True, because I had gingivitis three weeks ago before I started my Vegan diet, temporary diet for cleansing. My gingivitis is gone! I do not bleed when brush and my teeth and gums do not hurt!

    It's very important to brush your teeth everyday, because mouth bacteria produce acid after eating that make your teeth weaker day after day then create cavities.

    ı will be sure that the shape of teeth changes from person to person . The reality is that ı saw many people caring about their teeth by brushing three times in a day and they had serıous problem about teeth ıssues.and ı had realized some of my friends that they have a really white and strong-builded teeth although they do not brush every day. ı thınk ıt ıs connected wıth the habit of eating and diet from childhood to adult life as a hereditery .

    Yes tartar builds up fast. Brushing without flossing is like bathing and putting on dirty clothes.
