    I got the inspiration for this from a thread about going for periods of time without bathing.

    So... what's the longest you've gone without brushing your teeth?

    I think mine is about 3 weeks, last summer. I was just too lazy to...
    The only thing that made me brush them was a trip to the dentist :rolleyes:

    EDIT: I did 'wash' them, with my finger and some toothpaste, so it's not as bad as previously thought lol, i was just too lazy to do the whole brush routine

    I've never gone longer than a week long exercise.

    Although I did meet a patient who had his jaw wired shut for 8 weeks - it was pretty minging.

    That is honestly disgusting.
    The longest I've been is probably overnight after staying out etc, but I've brushed them when I've gotten in. Can't deal with the fuzzy feeling :no:

    I would probably say about 4/5 days :o: Which was when i was really ill last summer.

    But i only brush my teeth once a day anyways, so it's easy to miss a day if i'm not going out or whatever.

    3 Weeks :lolwut: Must've been smelly in there. But then again you could mix and match your meals. 'Ah, on this tooth I have the remains of last weeks' curry, and on this tooth I have chicken; yay, lets make chicken curry!' :p:

    Mine has to be... 3 days tops. When I was about 8 I think. :yep:

    About 2 and a half weeks when I had glandular fever, was using mouthwash at least though.

    Also probably about that or longer, can't really remember when I had a brain haemorraghe and teeth brushing was the last thing in the world that I cared about.

    2/3 weeks.

    Brushing actually doesnt do all that much, it wont get deep in to the root, especially if sugary drinks are consumed. Parts of China and India still dont bother with a toothbrush, my mate used to just grab a twig and use that.

    What I do: Boiling water - or as hot as you can manage, mix it with salt, rinse the mouth...jobs a good 'un
