The ideal brush­ing rou­tine would be 30 min­utes af­ter ev­ery meal. The 30-minute lapse will al­low enamel that is soft­ened from acid dur­ing eat­ing to re-har­den and not get brushed away. Brush­ing re­moves plaque, a film of bac­te­ria that clings to teeth. When bac­te­ria in plaque come into con­tact with food, they pro­duce acids that cause cav­i­ties. Brush no less than twice a day. A good tip is to bring your tooth­brush to the gym and to work for a lunchtime brush.
