Should you brush your teeth before going to the dentist?


Do you really need to brush your teeth right before going to the dentist? Hmmm.

I know what you’re probably going to say… of course you know, don’t you? Well, I had a little dilemma today.

I had a dentist appointment after work. I knew it was going to be a busy day so I would have to go straight from work to the dentist. It’s about a half hour drive to the dentist, so I figured last night I should bring my toothbrush to work so I can brush my teeth before I leave.

Well, that didn’t happen. I forgot to bring a toothbrush with me to work. If I don’t put a reminder in my phone, chances are I won’t remember what I needed to remember.

Ugghh. What was I going to do now? To make matters worse, I couldn’t stop by the house before the appointment even if I wanted to because the streets in my neighborhood were paved all day…of course they were. Could this day get any worse? I know it’s possible, but I was pretty mortified to have to show up to my dentist with unbrushed teeth.

Then I started thinking about it…why did I need to brush my teeth just to get them cleaned again on my appointment? I was trying to convince myself that it would be okay not to brush. MDR.

I even asked Joe on the show this morning if he had an extra toothbrush with him that I could have because he has everything in his car…everything…but, he doesn’t. did not. He only had his with him, which he took out of his backpack to show it to me. I’ll get to that another time. MDR. He just told me to ask for a toothbrush when I arrived and brush my teeth. But, that would be to admit that I didn’t brush my teeth before I got there.

After careful consideration, I decided to go to the appointment…I was going to arrive just in time…and ask for a toothbrush to brush myself. I always wondered what I thought was right all along…to brush my teeth before I left…because my teeth were just going to be cleaned anyway. I wondered all the way if the hygienist even cared if I brushed first. I decided to ask him and settle this inner debate once and for all.

I walked into the office with my teeth unbrushed, tried to act casual when she called my name (I was a little nervous), and just blurted out that I didn’t. hadn’t had time to brush my teeth before and asked if she wanted me to do it before cleaning.

His answer ? A very quick, “Nah, not much” with a hand gesture like we care. Phew. What a relief. She didn’t care at all.

wow. I felt so free. MDR.

Here is. An old debate arises.
