This is one of the basic and most controversial topic among people, among dentists and among those who study dentistry. When do people brush their teeth in the morning? Before or after breakfast?
My take on this –
I always suggest to brush your teeth as soon as you wake up, before breakfast. Its of no use if you are brushing your teeth after you finish your breakfast.
Here are the reasons why –
A very important point to be noted and remembered by everyone –
Acidic foods and drinks, such as oranges, grapefruit and fruit juices that are often eaten at breakfast time, soften the enamel on your teeth.
Brushing immediately afterward wears the enamel away, and can cause dental erosion, which may lead to pain and extreme sensitivity in the teeth, and also lead to cosmetic problems.
It still depends on how you look on it, and how you try to maintain good oral hygiene. Some people suggest and practice brushing before and after the breakfast which again isn’t always beneficial. Its good when you have a mild non-acidic food.Back to Blog
