    Before, brushing right after eating removes whatever that thing on your teeth is that makes them durable (enamel?).

    I always brush before but some people do it after because they say we brushed last night so brushing now would be pointless. Thanks for that. Polling is at 2-2 though.

    Sometimes before, sometimes after. Never directly after eating though, usually like an hour after.

    No it wouldn't be, brushing before sleeping protects your mouth from bacteria accumulating during your sleep and ofc removes the crap from your teeth that have been sitting there all day.

    Brushing before breakfast protects teeth for the rest of the day.

    Why brush before eating, that kinda makes it redundant

    after, because you'll only make your teeth greasy again by doing it before.

    After is now leading the polls. So the real question was the statement above made about enamel true and how it decays meaning it is bad for you to brush after breakfast?

    And so does brushing after breakfast, with the added bonus of removing the cornflakes between your teeth, surely?

    Before and after.

    Usually I'll brush really quickly after I wake up just for my own satisfaction, then again properly a bit after eating...

    If you have for a while after eating yes that is okay. But brushing after eating removes that thin film on your teeth that protect them from erosion.

    I used to brush before as that is what i have always been taught to do.

    But now, i brush after, i find doing so much easier.
