Falling Asleep Without Brushing Your Teeth is more disastrous than you think. Let us find out why:
There are bacteria that reside naturally in your mouth who, feast on the food that you consume and like all other organisms, they excrete waste products too. These waste products are highly acidic, causing damage as it erodes the enamel, resulting in cavities and decay.
When you go to bed without brushing, this plaque gets enough time to harden and calcify on your teeth. Once this happens, it is close to impossible to remove it by brushing and will require a cleaning session at the dentists. What happens when plaque builds up is the gums perceive them as an infection which triggers the immune response of the body. While it attacks the plaque, healthy tissues that hold the teeth together also get destroyed which results in a lot of damage.
