Good oral hygiene is essential for good health, and it is generally accepted that brushing should be done twice a day.

Recently, it was revealed that there are 3 special occasions when brushing should be avoided.

According to the report of the foreign news agency, the British dentist has warned that there are few times when brushing the teeth is likely to damage them.

The British dentist has surprised everyone with his statement above.

According to a British dentist, there are 3 specific situations when the level of acidity in the mouth is at its peak, which is why brushing should not be done at this time.

The British dentist says that when someone is vomiting, brushing should be avoided because the material that comes from the stomach is acidic.

If the teeth are brushed immediately after vomiting, this person rubs the acid on their teeth which can damage them.

The British dentist says that brushing should not be done immediately after eating, when we eat anything, the bacteria on the teeth metabolize it and turn it into acid.

According to a British dentist, brushing even after eating something sweet can be harmful to the teeth, the particles of sweet things left on our teeth after eating are used as food by the natural bacteria on the teeth.

This process also leads to acidity, so give the saliva time to neutralize the acidity naturally.

They say that our teeth are minerals and acid destroys the minerals, this acidity will be washed away naturally by saliva and it can take about 30 to 60 minutes.
