Brush BEFORE meals!

“Brush after meals.” That’s the message we know. Is this idea based on science or tradition? Research shows that if the meal consists of any high acid foods or beverages, brushing right after eating can be detrimental. The acids in orange juice or soda will actually soften enamel and dentin enough to make them susceptible to abrasion when brushed with toothpaste.
Researchers suggest waiting 60 minutes after eating to brush. Dr. Martin Addy and his research team at the University of Bristol in the U.K. did acid testing on teeth, and suggests brushing BEFORE eating rather than after!
