Always stay up late to damage teeth

  Nowadays, people’s nightlife is getting richer and richer. Many young people with high work pressures hope to use the short nighttime entertainment and relaxation as much as possible after finishing their daytime work. Therefore, staying up late has become a very common phenomenon. There are many harms of staying up late, one of which is often overlooked by everyone, and that is the damage to oral health.
  Reduced saliva secretion leads to dry mouth and bad breath. Staying up late for a long time will reduce saliva secretion and cause symptoms of dry mouth. Saliva has the effect of cleaning the oral cavity. Decreased secretion will result in poor oral hygiene, accumulation of food residues, and proliferation of bacteria, especially anaerobic bacteria, leading to bad breath. Since saliva contains certain bactericidal components, when its secretion is reduced, it will also bring about oral diseases such as dental caries, gingivitis, periodontitis and so on.
  Frequent snacks and supper can increase oral inflammation. Staying up late for a long time will lead to a decline in the body’s resistance. If the oral cavity is already inflamed, the condition will become serious, and even more acute pain will occur, such as patients with wisdom teeth pericoronitis. When people stay up late, it is inevitable to supplement their physical strength with snacks and supper. If you sleep without paying attention to cleanliness, acidic substances and bacteria can cause tooth decay and gum inflammation.
  Therefore, the dentist also advises everyone not to stay up late. Once you stay up late, you need to pay attention to oral hygiene care. 1. Choose toothpaste with antibacterial function, and use over-the-counter mouthwash in addition to brushing your teeth to further reduce the amount of bacteria in the oral cavity and prevent gingivitis and dental caries. 2. Clean the teeth once more. Always brush your teeth before going to bed, and use dental floss to clean between your teeth and food debris. 3. Drink more water and less strong tea and alcohol. 4. Find oral problems and treat them in time.
