Not brushing your teeth causes cavities. The sticky coating on your teeth called plaque is loaded with bacteria that act like little roving Pacmen, eating away at and boring holes (a.k.a. cavities) in your teeth.

Not brushing your teeth may even cause heart disease. If your gums are diseased, they release higher levels of endotoxins and other bacteria into your bloodstream every time you chew your food, and these harmful germs can lodge in various organs. People with severe gum disease have about four times the amount of harmful bacteria in their blood as do those with healthy gums.
