Do you brush your teeth before you go to bed every night?

Yes, almost always. Only times I don't are the rare occasion when it's very late and I'm feeling particularly lazy.

I try to, but sometimes it slips my mind. But I do make sure to brush my teeth every morning after I eat breakfast.

excuse me, but your pic for your username, are those panties, or a swimsuit bottom or what? I'm curious, the design is interesting.

No, I don't bother. I brush after breakfast. Haven't had a cavity in the last 5 years. The cavity I had 5 years ago was only because I hadn't bothered to get my cavities fixed (or go to the dentist) from 10 years prior.

I was never taught anything about hygiene when I grew up. Did not really start brushing my teeth consistently until I was in my late 20s. That was also about the time I started having problems with my teeth (and health in general). Most people's bodies can take a good 10-15 years of abuse and neglect before you start to wear down. But we all wear down eventually, and your lifestyle when you're young determines how gracefully you will age. Also, dental care gets dramatically more expensive/invasive/painful the longer you put it off.

^ Me neither, sad to say. Though I learned on my own the hard way and now I'm better for it. No cavities, but I did rip out some of my back molars by eating laffy taffy. The new ones grew in all funky, but they're alright health wise. I don't eat candy (except peppermints and chocolates) anymore as a result.

I believe regularly twice a day. With braces, it's best to do it three times a day. Always try and floss daily. Especially with braces. A better diet helps naturally maintain your teeth as well - you may not even have to brush as often if your diet is really really good and maintained.

I have never used wax with braces, pain doesn't really bother me all that much. They kept telling me if you're feeling any discomfort with your braces jutting out and stabbing your gums and inner mouth - come back immediately to get them fixed and in the meantime use wax to lessen the pain and whatnot. Never have - when I did go back one time they said the inner sides of my cheeks were sliced up from a bad wire and I never noticed, even when it bleed. It's all better now - the wires are really tight. That reminds me I also used to play with the holes of my extracted wisdom teeth out of boredom. I also can't believe I spent around three root canals (the first right after the accident happened and the other two years later when it got super injected because the original operation missed a teeny tiny dot of a section at the root of the vein) on a tooth I chipped off by ramming into a round metal bar and falling 10 feet in the second grade in the mulch on my school's playground, only to have it removed to make way for my braces. I also remember during the fall nobody bothered to see if I was alive until after everyone had already gone inside and one of the volunteer adults found me unconscious for a bit. That was fun. Hurray for hospitals. One last thing - ah yes the first time I brushed my teeth on my own. I slammed into a locked door and the toothbrush (it had a pointed end) found its way down my mouth and punctured a hole in my throat that caused me to choke, gauge, cough up blood, and proceed to wither on the floor with toothpaste bubbling everywhere. Hurry! Let's all freak out for five minutes while this kid is dying on the floor and then call poison control - I mean 9-1-1! The stitches were fun...

And those are some of my experiences with brushing and maintenance of my teeth, so yeah.
