Brushing you teeth after breakfast?

Sunday, October 16th, 2011

Went with my son for his semi-annual dental checkup and I learnt an interesting thing from his dentist.

We are used to brushing our teeth once in the morning (I have the habit of doing it as soon as I wake up) and once before going to bed.

The dentist gave a new suggestion that we should brush our teeth once after breakfast and once before going to bed at night. I was initially puzzled by this thought as I could not imagine how someone could have their breakfast without brushing their teeth in the morning. As I started thinking more about it, a few interesting thoughts came up, which tend to support the dentists reasoning behind this new suggestion.
