    I brush in the morning and before bed regularly, sometimes an additional brush here and there. I floss most days of the week (not all Embarassed) and I use mouthwash at least two times a day.

    I brush in the morning everyday, I’m less consistent in the evenings. I floss maybe twice a year usually because I’m about to go to the dentist and I feel bad. I don’t even think we have mouthwash in the house…

    @MrsPom:  My Darling Husband is that person. It grosses me out. I feel like his mother every morning yelling from the kitchen “DID YOU BRUSH YOUR TEEEETHH?!” He says he only has to brush them once a day..I said “fine, but do it in the morning nastyass”. No luck haha!

    I brush mine every single morning, and most of the time at night, sometimes I get lazy- so sue me. I floss like once a week, maybe.

    I brush every morning, and most nights.  I also floss once a day, but I don’t use mouthwash.  All the flavors are really overpowering for me.

    I brush my teeth between 2-3 times a day, mouthwash once in the morning & once at night. I floss a few times a week. I honestly hate flossing since I pulled out a filling once when I was flossing, so it’s kinda freaked me out since then.. even though I only have two fillings, so chances are I won’t affect them.

    im obsessed with brushing my teeth. In college I used to brush about 5 times a day. Then I learned that it’s actually bad for your teeth. So I brush everyday in the morning and right before bed. I usually brush in the middle of the day too.

    I floss maybe once a month, (I know horrible). My dental hygenist is always amazed how clean my teeth are when I go in for my cleaning.

    I brush every morning and every night.  I also brush after I eat or drink something, especially if it’s sugary or could stain my teeth.  I don’t floss as often as I should.

    I always brush, floss and use mouthwash before going to bed. The thought of that food and ick just sitting on my teeth grosses me out. I’m less good about brushing in the am, I do it probably 4-5 days a week, the other days it’s just because I run out of time, I also ALWAYS use mouth wash in the morning. My dentist told me when I was younger that you should always brush BEFORE going to bed to remove food and other gunk off your teeth because you don’t salivate as much while sleeping and saliva is what gets rid of the acid in foods to help prevent it from decaying your teeth. You should also chew gum after eating to speed up saliva production. I love brushing my teeth, I was super excited when someone gave me a really nice Sonicare toothbrush from Christmas this year.

    I brush morning and night.  But if I apply or reapply makeup around midday or at least a couple hours after I brushed, I brush my teeth again.  For some reason I can’t stand putting on lipstick without having a clean mouth.

    I floos like once or twice a month and use mouthwash pretty rarely.  I’ve found that mouthwash makes my tongue feel numb or that I can’t taste food as well when i use it.  Anyone else have that problem or am I a weirdo?
