The poll is neck on neck right now but sorry to break it to the other half - the acids and debris in the foods you eat weaken your teeth and therefore making the effects of brushing more abrasive. I think you're supposed to wait 45 min? before brushing after a meal. Bon apetit, y'all!
After... my routine in the mornings is to eat first and then brush my teeth as the last thing I do before I leave so as to make sure there's nothing in my teeth.
Before and then I wait until the minty taste goes away.
After! I don't want food stuck in my teeth!
I always brush my teeth before eating breakfast.
Before and after. Eating with gross teeth isn't fun.
After. Doesn't make sense to do it before...
both before and after
Sometimes I do.
Before... I wouldn't get that
I used to brush them before, but I read that it's better to brush them after, so that's what I do now.
I do both..
after!! wanna get out all that food lol
You shouldn't brush your teeth soon after eating. Many foods soften tooth enamel.
Before eating breakfast
Just a piece of advice here: It's not very wise to brush your teeth immediately after eating, especially when you've just ate something that contains sugar. Why? Most foods soften your enamel for a while. What does a relatively hard toothbrush do to soft things? It wears it down, and on top of that you're rubbing in the food particles. Always try to wait at least half an hour after eating before you brush so your saliva gets a chance to harden your teeth again first.
If you really can't wait, rinse your mouth a few times with water before you brush. This will get rid of most of the food-particles and neutralizes the sugars. It's not perfect, but making it a habit to rinse before you brush is a good thing.
Brushing before you eat is the better option. Rinse with an alcohol-solution such as mouthwash if you want to get rid of the toothpaste taste.
I brush them before
I brush my teeth after breakfast
Brush before and mouthwash after. I heard brushing can hurt teeth after breakfast if any acidic foods are consumed.
After, because you'll get food in your teeth.
