Do your sims brush their teeth ?

    If they have time in the morning, I have them do it before leaving the house (normal routine is toilet, shower, breakfast, then tooth brushing if there's time). I rarely have them do it at night, because it seems like a waste of the confident moodlet, unless I'm having them try to kill time before going to bed so they don't pop up in the middle of the night. I hadn't thought about it teaching kids manners, though, so I may start using it more.

    I do wonder... if we are getting a hygiene/dental kit, or if there's a dentist career in the EP... whether it's possible they would add negative moodlets or consequences to sims not brushing their teeth at regular intervals? If so, I suppose I'd be more regimented about having them do that, although I would personally not find that to be a particularly thrilling addition to the game.

    I do so once in a while. I wish the game provided better benefit, such as bigger hygiene gain.

    Often before they go out with friends or on a date.

    Generally just if their hygiene is a little low and I don't want to be bothered with a shower but want them to go out or go to bed with a higher hygiene bar. It doesn't seem to do anything that a shower doesn't do better, at least for adults.

    Lately I have been making my vampire children and teens brush their teeth, it amuses me.

    Only if they need to be confident for something, I have them brush teeth and any other quick confident boost I can remember at the time.

    I like my gameplay to be easy, so I do the bare minimum. They never get cavities, and no one complains if they have bad breath, so why bother?

    There is just too much to do in this game to waste time on that! Just taking a shower takes up like, half a Sim day lol.

    I have my Sims brush in the morning, because it seems natural to me. I'll also have them brush before they go out to festivals or on dates. I like having them begin their day with a Confidence boost; ditto for a day or evening out. They're often going right up to bedtime, so they don't brush at night nearly as often.

    I don't really give my sims realistic routines so they just brush their teeth whenever i think of it and they're not in the middle of somethig more exciting like getting eaten by mother plant

    I never used to get them to brush their teeth, until I started using a KawaiiStacie mod that made their teeth go yellow if they did not brush. Now I just make them brush 1 to 2 times a day without even thinking about it. :)

    It's the quickest way to make my acting career sims confident right before filming their scenes.

    I voted for everyday. I always try to have my sims brush their teeth in the morning & at night, but sometimes if things are a little too chaotic, I’ll let them skip it, lol.

    Mostly just when I want them to practice speaking in a mirror, lol

    I tend to do it more in smaller households or when the autonomy is switched off because it can be difficult to keep track. I'm surprised that it isn't an automatic action.

    I was kind of upset when they shortened eating. For my large families they never really get to sit down at a meal together anymore.

    I sometimes have them do it for a confidence boost, but since I play rotationally, I really should have them do it according to the type of personality they have.

    They never used to, because I din't see the point in it.
    But now I use the Dentalcare mod by Adeepindigo, so now they have to :)

    recently I started doing it as a nighttime routine just before the kit was announced :P
    i hope they change the confident moodlet because its kinda useless before bedtime
    English is not my first language so sorry if I make any mistakes!

    I use Adeepindigo's Dental Health Mod, if my sims don't brush their teeth they get tooth problems!

    I wish they would do it automatically as part of the hygiene.

    I would direct them more if it weren’t the confident moodlet they get after brushing. Like, that doesn’t really make sense to me.

    Every day as part of their daily routine. Get up, use toilet, wash hands, brush teeth, take shower, have breakfast. Also, they brush after they throw up.
    If you don't have anything nice to say then don't say anything at all. Live in your Truth.
