Toothbrushing is an interaction available in The Sims, The Sims 2: Apartment Life and The Sims 3. It can be accessed from the medicine cabinet in The Sims and any basin in The Sims 3. It affects the Hygiene need. In The Sims 3 it gives the moodlet "Minty Breath." Neat Sims occasionally get a wish to "brush teeth," while Neurotic Sims often wish to brush their teeth multiple times.
- In The Sims 3 , the "brush teeth" wish always appears if a Sim eats an onion, or garlic.
