do you brush your teeth everyday?

My husband doesnt and they get really gross I complain that his breath smells and he will brush them when I do but I hate having to remind him to do it how can I convince him its important to brush?

  • Ick! Mine does the same. Tell him that not brushing AND flossing can actually be harmful to his heart. After all, bits of food stuck in his teeth decay which means he is constantly swallowing small amounts of rotten food. Disgusting!

    But the most effective way to get him to do it is by refusing to kiss him, etc., until he does. He'll get the idea. Lol.

  • I do twice a day. Can you show him pictures of people with gum disease? That's not healthy for him, let alone having it giving him stinky breath.

  • EVERY day. Twice sometimes along with a good floss. Sorry girl. Don't kiss him anymore. Tell him you will again when he starts brushing his teeth!
