    Yeah, but you're doing just before eating, it doesn't make sense to me.
    Because you are getting rid of all the bad bacteria by brushing before eating.

    But then your food tastes like sh*t if you brush before, especially if you drink orange juice 😫

    And then you're left with bits of food stuck in your teeth afterwards and your breath will smell of whatever you just ate... An issue if you eat eggs. If you're gonna do it before, at least do it after as well, I couldn't leave the house for work after eating a meal and not brushing my teeth.

    Usually after, but if I feel my mouth is very not fresh or I have a bad taste I'd brush before though my food will be tasty. I use natural neutral paste so it doesn't make everything have the same taste...

    Brushing too soon after eating them can damage the enamel in its weakened state. Consequently, it's a good idea to brush your teeth before eating an acidic food and to drink a glass of water when you are finished to wash away the acids.
