Brush, Then Eat!

CLEO (Malaysia) - - BODY & SOUL -

Time to switch! Ex­perts say that brush­ing your teeth be­fore eat­ing is a lot more ef­fec­tive than af­ter. When you eat, the bac­te­ria in your mouth feed on what you’ve con­sumed to make acids that soften your tooth enamel. So if you brush af­ter eat­ing, you’re get­ting rid of these enamel lay­ers too. By brush­ing ear­lier, not only are you sav­ing your enamel, you’re re­duc­ing bac­te­ria and acids too.
