What really happens when you don't brush your teeth
You've likely been told once or twice that it's important for you to regularly brush your teeth and to brush them a couple of times each day. It's not just about hygiene, routinely brushing your teeth can help protect your overall health too. There are a number of conditions that can go along with not brushing your teeth — it's not just cavities you're risking.
While it can be tempting to skip a brushing session here and there — you're too tired, you forgot and didn't remember until the last second, and others — once you see what can happen to you when you don't brush your teeth, you're likely to skip brushings much less frequently.
