Dentist reveals why you should NEVER brush your teeth after breakfast & it could be causing serious damage

IF every member of our family walks out the door dressed and ready for the day and having brushed their teeth, we consider that to be a win.

But never have we stopped to considered the order we all brush our teeth in – and it turns out, we should always be doing it before the first meal of the day.

In a viral TikTok video, dentist Anna Peterson, from Essex, warned her 40,000 followers that brushing after breakfast could actually be damaging their teeth.

She said: "Did you know you shouldn't brush your teeth after breakfast? Always before."

Talking through the reasons why this is, the expert continued: "When you at breakfast your mouth becomes acidic.

"So what you're doing when you brush your teeth after breakfast is brushing the acid into the tooth and this wears away the enamel."

We know what you're thinking: what's the point of brushing when you're just about to eat a meal?

Well, Anna says this approach protects your pearly whites ahead of your breakfast.

She added: "Brushing before breakfast protects your teeth from anything you're going to eat."

In other words, we might just have to get used to the taste of minty fresh orange juice. *shivers*
