Doctor Explains Why You Should Brush Your Teeth Before Breakfast

Doctor Explains Why You Should Brush Your Teeth Before Breakfast

A doctor has explained why you should brush your teeth before you have breakfast. See why here:

Dr Karan Raj - who has amassed 2.7 million followers on TikTok - dispensed the advice in a video which has been viewed more than 840,000 times.

It's quite simple really - you should brush before you have your breakfast because if you brush during it will just be a right mess and your teeth won't get clean.

OK, that's just a fun little joke, no one is brushing during. However, many brush after because they don't like their brekkie to taste of toothpaste and they figure there's no point in cleaning their teeth just before eating.

This is the wrong way to go about things though, according to the TikTok doc.

He explained: "You've got to brush your teeth before breakfast, not after. Brushing before breakfast coats your enamel with a protective barrier against acid in your food - all that orange juice you're guzzling down.

"It also helps you jump-start saliva production which helps you break down food and naturally kills harmful bacteria in your mouth.

"Brushing your teeth after breakfast can actually cover your teeth in the remnants of acidic food, and this can actually weaken your enamel."

Flight Attendant Reveals What You Should Never Drink On A Plane

This isn't the only tip Dr Karan has shared that might make you want to adjust your morning routine.

You know how you've been told to make your bed in the morning since you were tiny? Yeah, well his medical advice is that you shouldn't.

He explained in a previous video: "Stop making your bed first thing in the morning, it's going to keep you healthy.

"Making your bed in the morning traps dust mites that have accumulated over night. These microscopic predators, which are less than a millimetre long, feed on the scales of human skin and thrive in moist environments.

"When we sleep at night, our bodies become warm and sweaty, making them prime targets for these mites to feed on.

"They will leave behind excretions which can give us asthma or allergy-like symptoms.

"So making your bed in the morning traps all this moisture and provides a home for 1.5 million of these bad boys."

So what are you waiting for? Go to your room, pull back that duvet and curse the guardians who taught you this dirty ritual.
