Brushing teeth - January 24th 2012, 12:20 PM

So, I brush my teeth like you're supposed to. But I've found that if I brush my teeth RIGHT before I go to bed, I wake up and my mouth tastes horrible and I'm pretty sure my breath sucks too. If I brush them a while before I go to bed, I don't have this problem. I also don't have this problem if I fail to brush them at all at night (it's college, shit happens). I'm not going to bother seeing a dentist about this, and it's not really causing that many problems. I was just wondering if it's happened to anyone else. I'm not really looking for solutions either, that's pretty simple...just brush my teeth a little while before bed haha. So, has this happened to you?

Well I know personally, the toothpaste freshness & stuff goes away after like a half hour & it bugs me too. During the day, I use gum to help with that (or you can use mints). But since your problem is at night, maybe you can try switching toothpaste brands or brush your teeth first thing in the morning. It's not really abnormal or anything, hence the saying "morning breath"

I can dry your mouth out... I think that's why. Especially the case if you don't rinse well enough with water after brushing.

"I don't care about politics"
Then politics doesn't care about you either. Truth. You've got to make your voice heard, if you want to be listened to. But that's too logical for some people, so let me go a step further. Not making your voice heard, leaves other people free to hijack it by speaking on your behalf, even if they don't actually give a shit about you. That's politics. So, make your voice heard. That's not a quote from anywhere. That's just me.

I'm on a couple different medications that cause "dry mouth" so I have that problem pretty often, especially in the morning. It especially sucks when my boyfriend is here because we'll be really comfortable in bed in the morning and he'll go to give me a kiss but I'm too paranoid that it'll be disgusting.

I know oyu said you weren't looking for suggestions but I'll give you some anyway, haha. I've found a few things help. I'm not big on gum chewing, so I use those Listerine breath strips or spray or those "Wisp" toothbrush things. Works great when you just want to roll over and take care of it but don't feel like getting fully out of bed to brush your teeth quite yet. And if you're like me you've gotten into a routine so it's easiest just to brush your teeth right before bed.
