Brushing Your Teeth

Are you a brush-your-teeth-as-soon-as-you-get-up kind of person, or are you a wait-until-after-you’ve-eaten-breakfast-to-brush-your-teeth kind of person?

If you wait until after breakfast to brush your teeth, why do you do that? Morning breath is so gross, I want to get rid of it the second my feet touch the floor.

    I do mouthwash for the night breath. Then brush after breakfast.

    Depends on just how bad my mouth feels in the morning. Most of the time it is after I eat, but some mornings require 2 brushings. Then of course, sometimes I don’t get to it until lunchtime as I have two kids that keep me on my toes and I sometimes don’t get my own breakfast until after 10am! LOL

    I brush first thing. As a newlywed, I’m sure you want fresh breath round the clock 🙂

    Actually, my routine is more of a brush my teeth after I shower. So I’m in the bathroom brushing hair and such and the toothbrush comes out. Otherwise it really doesn’t matter if I’ve eaten or not. And if I don’t shower….

    I live with the delusion that my breath is as fresh as the morning breeze…of course, I live alone so I have no one to disagree with my delusion!

    If I brush my teeth BEFORE I eat breakfast and drink coffee I feel like it affects the taste of everything! I feel like all I taste is toothpaste. So, I usually wait.

    I brush first thing in the morning! I want my teeth to be cleaned before I eat anything.

    My mom would always say “Why would you brush your teeth if you haven’t had breakfast yet?” but since I’ve moved out, I’ve discovered it’s so much better a right as soon as I get up thing….I can’t stand not brushing now.

    My mom said the same thing when I went home last. Yech. I just can’t not brush.

    I brush after breakfast – because if you wait until after the toothpaste taste ruins your cereal! Plus once I’ve eaten my cereal I then really need to brush my teeth!

    I am however a person who eats breakfast as soon as I get up ( well after exercising) – but before I see anyone else anyway!

    If I was a leave the house to go eat breakfast person I’d definitely brush first!

    I think that this must rank as one of the strangest questions asked on a blog!!

    Personally I brush after breakfast because, as others have said, breakfast just does not taste right otherwise!!

    Besides why brush your teeth first only to dirty them up immediately with breakfast!! 😉

    Although I liked Sam’s answer, I brush my teeth as soon as I get up. I can’t even have a cup of tea with a clean mouth.

    Lately, the toothbrush is making me want to barf. So. Whenever I can handle it.

    I brush after breakfast because, I feel its silly to brush your teeth and THEN eat..that’s just me.

    I have a weird thing about having the taste of food in my mouth, so I brush after breakfast, to get rid of the breakfast taste. During the day, I pop altoids to get the taste away. Morning breath is annoying, but the breakfast taste is worse.


  14. Natasha @ Maw Books

    I brush after breakfast because the after taste of toothpaste affects the breakfast food. Unless of course, I skip breakfast which I’m prone to do I brush when I get ready for the day.

    I’m with you, Trish. I brush my teeth the instant I get up. I will even brush my teeth in the middle of the night if I wake up. I usually brush them a couple of times during the day too. On the other hand, I can happily go several days without a shower.

    i have no schedule for brushing. if i can’t wait for coffee, i drink first brush later. if i wake up with dragon breath – brush first and probably later too. 🙂
