Should you brush your teeth the first thing in the morning or after you eat breakfast?
After breakfast brushing seems to make sense, but experts say brushing when you get up is the best for your dental health. Brushing your teeth the first thing in the morning gets rid of plaque, acids and biofilm that has accumulated in your mouth overnight.
Dentists recommend brushing your teeth and tongue every 12 hours, so before breakfast is the optimum time to get the job done. And brushing your teeth before eating protects them from acids in your food.
