Dentists Finally Solve the Debate on Should You Brush Your Teeth Before or After Breakfast



Brushing your teeth is essential, but not many people know that brushing them too often can harm your enamel. Or that putting a cap on your toothbrush is actually a bad idea. There are little things we do daily that actually do no good for our dental hygiene.


There’s a lot of debate on whether you should brush them before or after the most important meal of the day: breakfast. So TRIG did the research and decided to end this long debate once and for all.

The best time to brush according to the experts




In order to maintain a routine, many people set a specific time to brush their teeth each day — the most common one being brushing every morning after waking up and every night before bedtime. But should that morning brush be before or after your breakfast? Experts claim that you should always brush them before.




Pros of brushing your teeth before breakfast




When you sleep, the bacteria on your mouth multiplies. This same bacteria is responsible for plaque and that’s why you always wake up with a bad taste in your mouth and bad breath. If you brush your teeth immediately after waking up, your teeth get a fluoride-coating before you eat, something that helps you to avoid this plaque and bacteria from getting on the breakfast food you’re about to eat.




Cons of brushing your teeth after breakfast




Besides that, it is also not recommended to brush your teeth for at least 30 minutes after you just consumed something acidic, like toast, coffee, and orange juice — classic breakfast foods. Brushing your teeth after consuming food can affect your tooth enamel and that’s why studies suggest that brushing before breakfast is better. So make sure to remember this when you wake up tomorrow.




Tips for those who still prefer to brush after breakfast




If brushing your teeth after eating still fits best into your day, at least make sure to follow these tips so you can preserve your dental and oral health:
Wait between 30 minutes to an hour after eating before you brush.
To clean your teeth and have a better taste in your mouth, drink a glass of water or chew sugar-free gum.
Watch out for acidic food and drinks (bread, pastries, dried fruit, citrus fruit, and orange juice) and if you eat them during breakfast, make sure to wait a little while longer before brushing.

Check Out The Most Isolated And Dangerous Tribe Who Live Without Technology

If you consider yourself fortunate to have been born in the twenty-first century, surrounded by contemporary technology and devices, you should be aware that our globe is also full with individuals who are still oblivious of all of these innovations and comforts. These are men and women born into ancient tribes who have no concept what life is like outside of the jungle, island, or mountain in which they dwell. They have no notion what lies outside the island, and the outside world has no idea how they live, what language they speak, or what they name themselves since no one has been able to discover a way into the island to film a documentary. North Sentinel Island is part of the Andaman Islands, a Bay of Bengal archipelago that also contains South Sentinel Island. It is home to the Sentinelese, an indigenous tribe who have guarded their protected seclusion from the outside world, often by force. As a result, many people refer to North Sentinel Island as The Forbidden Island. The Sent

Mahama's Son Storms Accra Sports Stadium To Support His Team; Ghanaians Massively React

Sharaf Mahama, the son of former President John Dramani Mahama, has demonstrated that one does not have to be a politician simply because his father or relative is a politician. Sharaf Mahama is now a member of the Top Scout Football Academy, and he has scored several goals for his side as a result of his abilities. Yesterday, he was sighted at the Accra Sports Stadium, when Accra Hearts of Oak faced Wydad AC as part of the CAF Champions League matches. This was the opening leg, and Accra Hearts of Oak defeated Wydad FC. When the photographs were released online, Ghanaians responded violently. Some Ghanaians urged the page that shared the image to refrain from politicizing things. According to them, he was no different than any other Ghanaian, therefore they shouldn't make his attendance at the stadium appear so spectacular. Other Ghanaians urged Sharaf to support Mahama's "Do or Die" campaign.
