Don't Brush Your Teeth!

When is brushing not a good idea?  Eating grapefruit wedges or drinking a glass of orange juice will leave acid on your teeth and brushing immediately after will rub the acid further in and can erode enamel. You should delay brushing a full 60 minutes after a citrusy meal or snack.  Other acidic foods that can harm your teeth:  fruit juice, soda (including diet), sports drinks, and even wine. When the enamel, the protective outer coating on your teeth, wears away, the softer dentin layer underneath is exposed, leaving them vulnerable to tooth sensitivity that makes drinking hot or cold beverages painful.  They are also more vulnerable to cavities.  Plus, the enamel does not come back; once it is gone, it is gone.

  1. Good to know that after you have a citric meal, snack, or beverage it is best to delay brushing your teeth for a full 60 minutes. Did not know that not brushing your teeth could actually be good for you, but in this circumstance it does. Would not want to rub the acid further in and erode my teeth enamel. Now that I know about this, I will no longer do this and my teeth will be healthier.

  2. I never would have thought that a dentist would ever not recommend brushing your teeth! It does make sense though, an acidic food could damage your teeth even further if you brush your teeth right away. I'm glad I don't drink or eat that much acidic foods these days, my teeth have never looked better! http://www.dorsetdental.com/office-visits.php

  4. The title is a little misleading. I thought it meant that you should never brush your teeth. However once you read the passage, it makes a lot more sense. It is good to know that you should wait to brush your teeth after certain meals since you could be doing more harm than good. One thing that I would suggest is that you talk to your local dentist about little tips and tricks for brushing your teeth. They would be the most knowledgeable about this subject. http://www.drsgraffandheier.com

  5. I was so very confused when I found your title. It seems like did not match on your concept. Particularly if you are nervous about receiving dental care, spend some time researching dentists in your area. You'll feel better about seeing the dentist if you know it's a good one.
