Use the scare tactic maybe, show him pictures of people who didn’t brush their teeth enough. Make it a night time ritual that is something you do together.

Tell him no kissing after y’all go to bed until he brushes his teeth first!  I’m sure a few days of no lovin’ will help him change his habits, lol!

I’m so glad you posted this, fiance has a teeth problem too. He takes care of them, brushes regulary at least twice a day, uses a flouride mouthwash etc. BUT..he smokes like a chimney and drinks coffee like it’s his job. He has horrible horrible nicotine/coffee stains. I’m hoping to convince him to do 2 things before the wedding, 1) quit smoking, not only for his teeth but for other obvious reasons as well and 2) get some professional whitening done. The boy has a beautiful smile and want him to show it off!

As for your boy, I don’t know if withholding the kissing would work very well, not in my case anyway..fiance would quickly remind me that that means I miss out on it too. And I’m way more into kissing than he is I think. I would go for the health issues. Food and plaque that stays in your mouth or on your teeth overnight is sooo bad for teeth. Night time brushing is just as important as day time!! maybe send some articles to his email or something.

My Fiance doesn’t like brushing his teeth before bed (he brushes them in the shower, so he only brushes in the morning).

I’ve instituted the “no brushed teeth = no kissing” rule. He still doesn’t brush every night, but it’s gotten MUCH better.
