Advantages of brushing teeth before breakfast

When you sleep, the bacteria on your mouth multiply. It is this bacteria that is responsible for creating plaque and causing you to always wake up with bad breath.

If you brush your teeth as soon as you wake up, your teeth will be coated with fluoride before you eat, which will help you avoid plaque and bacteria from getting into the breakfast food you’re about to eat.

Cons of brushing teeth after breakfast

You shouldn’t brush your teeth for at least 30 minutes after consuming something acidic like toast, coffee and orange juice – common breakfast items.

Brushing your teeth after consuming food can affect your enamel and that’s why studies suggest that brushing before breakfast is better. So keep this in mind when you wake up tomorrow.

Tips for those who still like to brush their teeth after breakfast:
