Beware of brushing soon after meals as it may cause damage of your teeth. Brushing and flossing twice a day are recommended by dentists worldwide. But several people do it more often, after every intake of food and drink. “Research shows that brushing too soon after meals and drinks, especially those that are acidic, can do more harm than good,” according to Dr Howard Gamble, president of the Academy of General Dentistry in the US.
According to Dr Gamble, after drinking fizzy drinks, the acid burns into the enamel of our teeth and the dentin layer which is located just below the enamel and brushing soon after drinking fizzy and acidic drinks can actually accelerate the process by pushing the acid deeper into the enamel and the dentin. People who brush within 20 minutes after drinking soda are more vulnerable to more dentin loss than those who brush 30 or 60 minutes afterwards.
