Most of us brush our teeth twice a day. And it is mostly in the morning and just before going to bed. It is said that it is good not to eat anything atleast for 8 hours after brushing our teeth. The reason being this is the time taken for the gums and teeth to rejuvenate. So it is good to brush teeh in the night and not eat anything after that. Do you eat after brushing your teeth. I dont. Brushing is the last activity that i normally do.

Brushing teeth is not just done twice a week but thrice a week.After brushing my teeth, as much as possible I try not to eat anything so to provide my teeth feeling fresh for longer time but if have the feeling to have urge to eat something......I will forgive myself to eat the food provided that I willhave my tooth brushed before going to fools provede that I will provide myself to est the food, provided that I will have my tooth brushe before going to eat myself.

I never eat after brushing my teeth either. I also brush before i go to bed and after my mornings breakfast! It would be hard to go without food though for 8 hours during the day!

I brush my teeth many times esp when I don't feel good about what I've eaten or after smoking. The best way to brush teeth is when you'll sleep at night therefore, there'll be no mouthy activity, so that the 8 hours you've said can be apply.

I do not eat after brushing my teeth at night before going to bed but sometimes in the morning after I have arrived at work I get something light to eat and something to drink to help me get through the morning. I think this would apply at night because I can not see someone making it through a whole day of work without eating anything.

When i get up in the morning i have my breakfast first and then clean my teeth - that way, i have a nice minty fresh clean feeling in my mouth for longer, and i know that there is nothing horrible stuck to my teeth. I have to brush my teeth immediately before i go to bed, i wouldnt be able to sleep otherwise - its become a bit of an obsessive compulsive thing, I feel that if i dont, i will wake up with no teeth! they will have rotted away.

I brush my teeth twice, or sometimes 3 times a day. I brush them after breakfast when I take my morning shower. So, of course a end up eating something a couple of hours later. Then sometimes I brush my teeth again after eating lunch. At night I brush my teeth right before going to bed, so I do not eat anything after that.

I drink a glass of water after brushing my teeth and sometimes I must admit a cup of tea. It makes me relax before going to bed.

I eat after I brush my teeth in the mornings, but not after I brush at night because I go to sleep. I don't understand why you would brush your teeth and not eat for 8 hours in the day, I mean we need to eat lunch etc.

One should not brush right after getting up in the morning but during the lunch hours. But for working people it is not possible, so they brush in the morning. But others should brush after lunch.

Yup, same here. I don't eat anything after I brushed my teeth simply because when I brush my teeth, means that I am going to sleep, no more eating. Unless before I am doing any activity, then I brush my teeth and start having my meal or eat (normally when my day starts).

I have to brush my teeth in the morning and yes I eat. I couldnt go all day without eating. And I aso brush my teeth at night just before I go to sleep land. My dentist never said that you shouldnt eat after brushing. I will ask him about it.
