    After,

    Someone told me you should do it before though as it acts as some form of protection?

    Sound like bullsh*t if you ask me.

    So you brush before you're about to get your teeth dirty?

    After because after you have ate you have the food on your teeth so brushing your teeth gets it off - keeping teeth clean.

    Why would you brush them after? Like you're eating your bacteria for breakfast then brushing ???😂😂

    Yup, like because I personally see no point in brushing my teeth after breakfast if i'm not going to brush my teeth after every meal. I prefer to do it like at the start and at the end of the day.

    Yeah, but you're doing just before eating, it doesn't make sense to me.

    A dentist told me something about how some flouride stuff (I was barely paying attention) chills out in your mouth through the day but he was using it as an argument for not using mouthwash rather than brushing before breakfast. At the end of the day you're gonna just brush off all the crap you had during breakfast and get the protection for the rest of the day anyway, surely...
