Brush together & stay together

During these turbulent times, there is a romantic way to keep your teeth healthy. We looked at something we should all be doing twice a day for two minutes with a fluoride toothpaste… brushing your teeth!

Sabka Dentist wanted to check how many people share this very personal routine with their spouse or better half. We did a small survey and below given is what we found:

Do you brush your teeth at the same time as your partner?

Brushing-together

Only 3% couples brush their teeth alongside a partner on a “most of the time” basis. While, 88% of all couples never do. Now, it might not be the typical scene that comes to mind when you think of a couple in love but brushing your teeth with your partner does come with its benefits. There are some people who say: “When you brush your teeth next to the same person every single day for 30 years you discover love.” Sabka Dentist also says the same thing. Here are our five reasons why you might want to start brushing your teeth as a couple.

  1. Eye contact and “the spark” –

    Tooth brushing is usually a fairly simple and quiet activity. But there’s more to great communication than words. For two minutes twice a day, use this as a chance to gaze into your partner’s eyes. It’s amazing how prolonged eye contact can help strengthen your connection.

  2. It helps make brushing fun –

    Let’s be honest, trying to speak with a mouth full of toothpaste is almost impossible to do without making a fool of yourself which is often followed by a good laugh. Also, it can often lead to some cute moments and fun to spice up your romance.

  3. You can make sure you both are brushing correctly –

    This one is important. By brushing together, you can make sure you’re both brushing with correct technique and not in a way that actually harms your teeth (such as scrubbing with an electric toothbrush). If you’re not sure what correct brushing technique is here’s a reminder:

    • While using a manual toothbrush, make small, round movements over all surfaces of the teeth. The bristles of the toothbrush must point towards the gums. Always ensure that you brush all the different sides of your teeth and top surfaces of your teeth diligently.
    • If you are using an electric or ‘power’ brush the important thing is to make sure you don’t apply pressure and let the brush do the work. A brush is already doing a lot of the cleaning and scrubbing action therefore if you press down or move the toothbrush too vigorously you can cause tooth wear or attrition, particularly around their necks where softer dentine is often exposed. To avoid this, just hold the toothbrush in place over your teeth and move from tooth to tooth making sure you brush each quadrant of your mouth for 30 seconds each
  4. It helps make it routine –

    By brushing together, it helps cement it as a good routine and add that extra layer of accountability so that you don’t end up forgetting to brush or that try and cut corners and brush for less than 2 minutes. It also may help encourage other good oral health routine habits such as interdental brushing or flossing.

  5. Finalize it with a kiss –

    You know the feeling of getting into a bed with freshly laid clean bedsheets? Well kissing with a freshly clean mouth is your mouth’s equivalent. It feels extra nice, is a lovely way to end your night, and is a fitting reward for keeping your oral health in tip-top shape!

Above all, whether or not you brush with or without your partner, the important thing to remember is that oral health really does matter and it’s important to look after your teeth and mouth. A good oral health routine not only keeps your breath fresh and your smile free of tooth decay, it also helps stave off heart disease, diabetes and also strokes. It all means a happier healthier and longer life spent together.
