maybe most of people brush their teeth on the morning and evening,after geting up and before going to bed.i am one of them.but some research show that the best time for brushing is ten minutes after eating.brushing teeth at that time can protect our teeth at biggest extent.i find it's not convenience for me to brush my teeth at the best time. how about you??do you brush your teeth in the 10 minutes after your eating ???

Hi lingzi I regularly brush my teeth immediately after getting up from the bed. Also I brush my teeth in the night before going to bed..But if I am tired I will skip this. At times when some food particles get struck during food,then after the food also I will brush. But it is important to brush your teeth when ever you eat some sticky sweets. Happy mylotting

I always brush my teeth as soon as I wake up. That's the first thing I do. Then I brush my teeth before I go to sleep and make sure I don't eat anything after that.

It is hard to brush teeth 10 minutes after eating for many people specially those eat out. When you are work place is far from your home and you have to eat near your office,you must not brush your teeth outside! I usually brush teeth after getting up on the morning one time a day.I am a little lazy!

Close enough to 10 minutes after eating so that what I eat won't be stuck long on my teeth. Brushing my teeth every morning and before sleeping is a must for me.

I brush my teeth every time I wake up, and before i'm going to bed. I also brush my teeth sometime after a meal or eating something that is not good to my teeth. I always brush my teeth before going out because I don't want to have bad breath.

the same to you,in the early morning just before breakfast and after my supper.also i don't think it is enough for tooth health.in my opinion,we should brush our teeth three time a day,just after every meal.of course,if we eat something between two meals,we just need drink some water and it can help clean our teeth.

Just like most people, since child i always brush my teeth twice a day. In the morning when i wake up, and in the night before going to sleep. When i have to brush my teeth ten minutes after eating, i will feel incovenient because it is hard to change the habit that we always do everyday.

Whenever my mouth feels and tastes "yucky!" I brush my teeth in the morning, and then if I eat something else, I like to brush my teeth before I go to the store. If I can't brush my teeth, then I like to carry some nice minty gum with me. I take my tooth brush to school with me, so I can brush my teeth at noon...I hate a nasty tasting mouth, especially when it's my own.

I brush my teeth twice a day only, that's after I get up and before I go to bed, as most people do. I have also read that it's good to brush our teeth after eating, but I have also read that it's not good to brush our teeth too many times a day, twice a day is the best. So, I do not brush my teeth after eating, I just gargle my mouth every time after I eat.

do you brush your teeth in the 10 minutes after your eating???Definetely no.I'm not that hardworking.Or should i say COD?haha.That is way to clean for our teeth.It might have opposite effects on our enamel as excessive brushing may hurt our gums.I brush teeth in the morning and night.Sometimes in between meal,if it is a heavy meal that i have to get rid of the odor.SOmetimes i brush when i don't have tooth pick or mouth cleanser with me.You know,to get rid of smelly garlic or left over vege.haha.sorry if that gross you out.I find brushing teeth before bed time is good for my body.I tend to sleep better if i have a clean teeth.

Yes that is the usual thing most of us do. Once in the morning after you get up from bed and then at at night before you go the bed. And what you put here is a news for me. But is not it inconvenient to brush teeth after ten minutes after anything you eat?

I don't thing people manage this kind of timing because this thing is not in habit and followed by anybody.

I didn't brush my teeth until i was 13 years old.When i was a little child,i got much interested in the candy,what's more,i don't brush my teeth at that time.So i have lots of bad teeth in my mouth.When i was years old,i thought it's time to brush my bad teeth.I will get my teeth brushed when i got up and before i went to sleep.After having lunch,i will brush my teeth too,what i think my bad teeth will change into good teeth,at least not get much bad quickly.Maybe i should change my style of brushing,thank you for your suggestion.

I brush my teeth right after i wake up in the morning, after eating the three meals, and before going to sleep. i dont know if that's working, brushing teeth 10 minutes after eating? if thats long may be your breath will become bad. because you haven't brush your teeth yet bacteria can spread all over your mouth and it may be can cause tooth decay.

I had some trouble so I started to get very serious about cleaning them. I floss brush and gargle every morning. At night I brush before bed. I even have a plaque scraper to get a deeper cleaning when I feel it is getting a bit fuzzy. My children also do this every day without me needing to telling them anything now as a routine.
