I have to be honest, when I heard the term 'naked brushing', I didn't think it would be what It actually is. And, that it's actually good for you.

I mean, if you ask me what I thought 'naked brushing' was, I would have gotten a huge smile on my face. And, told you that everybody else would like it more than the person brushing.

But, I was way off. According to Men's Health, naked brushing is actually good for your teeth. It's the act of brushing without any toothpaste.

The American Dental Association (ADA) wants us to use toothpaste with fluoride. However, some research shows that naked brushing removes as much or more plaque as using toothpaste, after all, the bristles do the dirty work.

In fact, going pasteless may even be better for brushers who rely on mirror feedback because they can more easily spot tooth plaque.

"Stopping after a few seconds of brushing with paste because you feel minty fresh can shortchange your oral hygiene."

am going to try and do this method. Maybe not every time, but once in a while.
