Is het slecht om te gaan slapen ZONDER je tanden te poetsen?

Iedereen weet eigenlijk wel dat het belangrijk is om twee keer per dag je tanden te poetsen, maar hoe erg is het nou eigenlijk als je het een avondje overslaat?

Iedere keer als je wat eet doen de bacteriën in je mond zich ook tegoed aan het voedsel. Vervolgens scheiden ze afvalproducten uit die een hoge zuurgraad hebben en schade aan je tandglazuur veroorzaken, waardoor cariës kunnen ontstaan. Als je je tanden niet poetst voor het slapen gaan kunnen deze afvalproducten dus de hele nacht hun schadelijke werk doen.

Een ander schadelijk effect is dat tandplak kan verharden en calcificeren als je het niet wegpoetst. Als tandplak eenmaal is gecalcificeerd en tandsteen is geworden kan het alleen door een tandarts of mondhygiënist worden verwijderd.

Het probleem met tandsteen is dat je tandvlees het ziet als een infectie, waardoor je immuunsysteem in werking treedt en het tandsteen bestrijdt. Door deze afweerreactie raakt ook het gezonde weefsel van je tandvlees beschadigd en trekt het zich terug, waardoor je tanden los kunnen komen te zitten.

Als je rond blijft lopen met chronisch ontstoken tandvlees kan dit zeer nadelige gevolgen hebben voor je gezondheid — zo is het in verband gebracht met gehoorverlies, dementie en hart- en vaatziekten.

Dit gebeurd natuurlijk niet als je af en toe eens je tanden poetsen overslaat. Maar ja als je het bijna nooit doet is de kans natuurlijk wel groot dat dit gaat gebeuren.
