Why You Should Avoid Midnight Snacking 

At Gresham Family Dentistry, we consider it part of our job not only to take care of Gresham families while they visit but to help Gresham families learn good oral health habits to take home with them. Today, we’re going to talk about the dangers of midnight snacking. 

You likely already know the importance of brushing your teeth twice a day. Typically, one of those times is before bed. What happens, though, if you’re feeling a little peckish after your nighttime tooth brushing? What if you get up in the middle of the night for a snack? 

We encourage Gresham families to avoid this practice. At the very least, if you eat after brushing your teeth for the evening, brush them again before settling back into bed. Why? This is because if you leave the food particles and sugar in your mouth overnight, you’re providing fuel for the bad bacteria in your mouth. The bad bacteria in your mouth are what cause a wide range of dental health issues – including bad breath, gingivitis, and periodontal disease. So make sure your teeth are clean before going off to bed!
