Our day starts and ends with brushing our teeth. But alas! many people may not know the exact rules of brushing, many people think that you should brush your teeth after every meal that make the teeth good.

But you have to know that brushing more teeth than necessary is more harmful than beneficial. Let's find out now about the right time to brush your teeth. 

You should not brush immediately after drinking tea, coffee and soft drinks as the reaction of toothpaste with the acid in such drinks burns the enamel of the teeth. Nevertheless, the acid sticks inside the tooth enamel. So if you have to brush your teeth, brush at least half an hour after drinking such a drink.

It is not necessary to clean your teeth after every meal. It is enough to brush your teeth twice in the morning and at night. Whether it is important to brush your teeth right after eating depends on what kind of food you are eating.

Brushing the teeth more than necessary damages the top layer of the teeth. This can lead to tooth sensitivity or tooth decay and many people suffer from such problems.

Now the question may be raised - when is it better to brush your teeth? Experts say that you should brush your teeth twice in the morning and at night after eating. However, there must be a break of at least 30 minutes between eating and brushing teeth, this will reduce the level of acid a lot.

Excessive brushing can damage tooth enamel and gums. Without it, if the bristles of the toothbrush are too hard, the teeth and gums may be cut.
