    @mrssrm: I brush my teeth once a day and sometimes twice depending on what was eaten. I floss twice a day and use mouth wash after lunch. You don’t have many options for people in that poll. I mean you could keep going and say seven times a day and so on but you leave no room for people to post wether or not they brush everyday. What if someone brushes every other day or once a week? We wouldn’t know because the poll is only aimed for brushing everyday.

    I have Invisalign, so I brush my standard once in the morning, once at night, then 3-5 times during the day from when I eat/drink anything other than water/snack.

    @ccantics:  Not to threadjack but do you like invisalign? Maybe inbox me? Just curious because I have been interested in maybe using it myself 🙂

    I brush my teeth at least twice a day. Sometimes more depending on what I eat. When I was using invisalign I brushed my teeth like 10 times a day!

     

    @Payless:  I used the invisalign for 2 years. Loved it!

    I only brush in the morning! It’s soooo bad. I used to be so good about brushing 2-3 times/day, but I am a grad student, and I basically fall asleep while working every night. I never actually “get ready for bed.”

    I do floss nearly every day, so hopefully that will keep my teeth from falling out.

    Twice a day, sometimes once if I forget before bed.  I’ve never had an issue, no cavities or gum disease so I must be doing alright.

    @mrssrm:  You’d be surprised at people who don’t brush every day, I imagine.

    Anyway, I do 1-2 times a day.  I’ll admit to sometimes passing out after the bars in college and not doing it (or even removing my makeup/clothes).  I always woke up with the grossest taste in my mouth!

    @mrssrm:  I was just suggesting more options? I didn’t think bee’s would say that they only bathe once a week or less but people did and it was kind of interesting. I don’t know how many people brush their teeth only once a week but wouldn’t it be something new to figure out? 

    I am sure you would be surprised to see how many people don’t brush daily and it would have been nice if their were more options for people to choose.

    Morning and night, and maybe once more if I just ate something for dinner that stuck in there and I’m going out after or something.

    Usually morning and night, sometimes more if I ate something like a lot of onion or garlic., or if something is stuck in my teeth. Sometimes if I fall asleep for like a nap I usually like to brush again when I wake up.
