Brushing Teeth

I know it's so stupid but I literally can't remember to brush my teeth every day or I feel too overwhelmed to get out of bed and brush them, I'll remember and then forget and that cycle goes on for a while. Anyone got any tips to remember?

I tend to forget to do it most days if I don’t take a shower. I keep an extra toothbrush in the shower and that makes it easier for me. On days I don’t have enough energy to take a shower, I honestly just use mouthwash. My dentist always tells me my mouth looks pretty healthy so I don’t worry much about it, but I do want to change that habit.

It’s the first thing I do in the morning and last thing I do before bed - I go to the restroom, brush my teeth, put in/take out my contacts. Maybe make yourself do it as a task related to your morning routine, like I do with going to the restroom in the morning? Something you have to do. Put it on your task list twice too - repeated daily! Take care of those teeth! You only have one set and cavities suck, people hate bad breath, and it’s good for your health!

It’s ridiculous how overwhelming something SO simple feels. I brush in the shower regardless of when I shower which helps more than anything I think. When there are days that I don’t shower, if I have to leave the house that’ll typically push me to brush. Otherwise, I think this wisps idea is genius & I’m going to start doing it

if you don’t brush when you think of it, swish your mouth out with water. A dentist did a presentation I attended recently and she said that helps at least decrease the acidity in your mouth. I also bought a pack of Wisps to keep on my nightstand and in my car for when I (often) forget. They’re tiny disposable toothbrushes with toothpaste already on them.

I have the same problem. I can never seem to remember at an ideal time, and I always plan to do it later and then inevitably forget for days at a time.
