Do you brush your teeth BEFORE or AFTER breakfast?

I brush before breakfast, but apparently thats not the norm. What do you guys do?

  • I brush them before breakfast but I try to brush them after each meal as well just to get all the food out. If I can't brush I will definitely rinse my mouth though.

  • After. What's the point of brushing your teeth after sleeping? You didn't eat anything in your sleep haha

  • Before breakfast, whilst I'm getting washed and dressed and stuff.

  • After, because brushing them right before getting them "dirty" again is just really pointless.

      Hopefully you're waiting at least 30 minutes after you eat (I do the best I can) since your enamel is susceptible to some stuff if you brush too early (I forget what it's called).

      I think it's "dentin" or something like that.

      @AlwaysBelieving yeah I believe I'm not eating "some stuff' because, despite taking my time having breakfast, I usually don't wait 30 mins and yet I have never had caries in my life.

      @AlwaysBelieving - Dentin is one of the four major components of teeth. Without it your teeth would be in sad shape. But I guess you don't want dentin in your teeth.

  • After breakfast :D But I don't think it matters too much as long as it's twice a day

  • Neither. I almost never have breakfast in the morning, and brushing my teeth is like the very last thing I do once I know I'm ready to head out. I know, its weird lol. I have made a habit out of it because I usually forget to brush once I wake up and I suddenly remember it once I grab the keys to leave the house.

  • Before. I'm up at 4:30 and out the door by 5. They serve 3 meals a day at the didn't buildings I work at but not until 9 is breakfast served. After breakfast I use mouthwash but then eat again at like 1 or 2 for lunch. I wouldn't wanna wait gettin 4:30-9 to brush, that'd be gross, haha.

  • It depends on of I have 90 minutes after eating or not. I have a weird thing where I puke some food up if there isn't enough air in the system.

  • Do you wash your hands before cleaning the toilet? do you shower before you work out?

      @hawkeye92 - Your last makes sense, though as you say it is a psychological thing. I took issue about you making sure that your hands "are clean at all times" as that is really impossible without being in a sterile environment and still cleaning every few minutes. Which I know from times in cancer wards.

      nah man ain't nothing but a thang. no hard feelings. i'm not anal with cleanliness.

  • Who da fack brush their teeth before breakfast 😱😱😱
