I heard someone say they brush their teeth before breakfast. Do you do that? It seems funny to me to brush my teeth and then eat and get them dirty again. I am up a while before I eat so guess I could do it before, but then I'd want to do it again. So..when do you brush your teeth in the mornings?

I like to wait until after I eat to brush my teeth as well. I don't want to do it twice! So I wait!!

Brushing your teeth is a must activity that must be done twice a day. So i brush after breakfast and after dinner. But i always make sure that after brushing i will not attempt my mouth to eat food, only during lunch time.

Brushing my teeth is usually one of the first things I do in the morning, an absolute necessity because I can't stand the way my mouth feels when I wake up. Then I shower, and eat later, if I eat breakfast at all. Seems not to bother me after I've eaten, but i must brush my teeth when I get up.

The first thing I do when I get up is brush my teeth. I can't see eating anything before brushing. I think its really disgusting not to brush first, at least for me it is. After brushing I will take a shower and then prepare my breakfast by then the taste of the toothpaste is usually gone. My younger sister eats first and I always thought it was so gross.
