Is it ok to brush your teeth twice in the morning?

Is it okay to brush your teeth before AND after eating breakfast? I’ve been doing this for about half a year now. The thought of eating my breakfast along with the bacteria that built up in my mouth overnight just doesn’t feel right to me. I know that the bacteria that we consume with our food can be destroyed once it enters the stomach...blah..blah..blah..science..science..haha. Anyway, does this have a negative effect on my tooth enamel, gums, teeth, etc?

Is It OK To?

  • Yes it does. Brushing too much can wear down the enamel and lead to sensitive teeth, can weaken the teeth and even erode them down over time. Enamel is important for the protection of your teeth.

    If you brush your teeth the night before, you don't need to worry about huge build-ups of bacteria in the morning. Just eat your breakfast and then brush (for fresher breath than brushing before).

  • No it's not good for your teeth but I do understand the feeling of eating food in the morning with unbrushed teeth. It feels icky.
    I usually don't eat in the morning anyway though.

  • That sounds excessive. Why don't you rinse your mouth and save the brushing for after you eat breakfast?

  • It's a good way to develop receding gums and expose your roots to decay.

  • Lick the toothpaste from the sink and try the handle side.

  • I use Stannous Fluoride tooth paste twice a day. That's where it's at.

  • Wasted action but to each their own. Just rinse thoughly before you eat. Fluoride is toxic.
