Tips for improving your oral health at night

Sleeping plays an important role in our overall health and in our oral health too.

While you sleep, your cardiovascular system and blood vessels transport essential nutrients like calcium and phosphate to the bone tissue in your teeth. This helps repair, replenish, and strengthen tooth enamel, which works as a shield against plaque and cavities. Sleep is also important for keeping your immune system strong to fight gum disease, tooth infections and tooth decay.

As you can see, a lot can happen to your mouth in eight hours. To help your body do its job, here are 6 tips for taking care of your oral health at night:

  1. Always brush your teeth before you go to bed.

  2. Use good form while you brush.

  3. Consider switching to an electric toothbrush.

  4. Remember to floss your teeth every night.

  5. Rinse with mouthwash.

  6. Look for signs of teeth grinding.
