Cory Rodriguez, a digital content creator, took to Instagram to answer this commonly-asked question. Let's check out what he had to say.
Brushing your teeth is an absolutely important step to maintaining oral health and dental hygiene. This, coupled with regular dental check-ups, using proper brushing and flossing techniques, and consuming a healthy diet is necessary to keep bacteria and tooth decay at bay.
He further added, "If you brush your teeth during that time, you are going to brush away the acids from the enamel. On the other hand, brushing first thing in the morning helps to disorganise any of the biofilm and any bad bacteria.
"Most will drink their coffee, have their breakfast, and then directly go and brush their teeth. This is a wrong move as after you eat, your mouth is in an acidic state that lasts for 30 minutes to an hour," said Rodriguez.
"So, the correct way would be to brush your teeth, wait for 30 minutes or so, eat breakfast, drink coffee, do whatever you have to do, and then you can rinse right afterwards. And you should be brushing your teeth right before bedtime," shared Rodriguez.
