Does it strike anyone else as odd that a user on a dating site such as Okcupid would respond that she only brushes her teeth once per day?
I find this fascinating, and not just because the idea of only brushing my teeth once per day terrifies me.

She doesn't want you to be disappointed if you go in for the kiss and her breath stinks.

Er...

um...this is kind of gross to admit but while I brush, floss, and brush again every night...sometimes I wake up and don't brush my teeth after sleeping all night. Ew.

But I definitely don't do it regularly, and definitely wouldn't admit it on a date/dating site.

Many of the people I know don't even brush their teeth every day. Doing it once a day would be an accomplishment for them! I brush mine twice a day. I'm pretty anal about my teeth being clean. 2 root canals later it doesn't seem to have helped a ton though lol. Yay genetics

I only brush once a day, too, most of the time. Twice is too often for everyday routine and bad for your enamel. Too much fluoride.

So what. Big deal.

Where are you getting this info from? I'm fairly sure every dentist in America says twice per day. Unless you're a fluoride conspiracy theorist, which in case you should probably stop drinking water too.

It's weird that they put that on a dating site.Maybe they have an underlying meaning.Strong teeth don't need to brush, their breath doesn't stink when they wake up, low maintenance,or trying to attract others who aren't that nitpicky.

Personally brushing after meals, when you leave the house, mornings and at night seems normal.

My doctor. Brushing before bed is healthier because you scrub away food particles. Theres no reason to apply fluoride to your gumline 8 hours later when you havent eaten. Use mouthwash.
