There are many false myths of youth that are shattered when we become adults. Today we will talk about dental hygiene and we will show you that the lectures you had as a child did not really have a scientific basis. Let's talk about the injunction to brush your teeth every time you got up from the table. "After breakfast, before going to school, brush your teeth," the mother ordered sternly.
Modern mothers, on the other hand, should know that proper dental hygiene involves a very different operation: that is, brushing your teeth before having breakfast. Does that sound silly to you? Not at all. According to the Mayo Clinic, proceeding in this way helps protect the dental enamel from attack by acid substances, such as orange juice. And there is also another reason.
Why brush your teeth before breakfast
The action of washing with a toothbrush (electric or manual, it doesn't matter) also serves to stimulate salivation. In this way, when we eat our breakfast, the foods will be processed in such a way as to leave fewer residues that could create tartar and tooth decay. Dr. Karan Raj also confirms the veracity of this assumption, which leaves us a little confused.
He became famous on the web by posting videos on TikTok in which he dispenses his advice. Brushing your teeth before breakfast is just one of many. Another, which in turn dispels an old myth, also invites us not to make the bed immediately after getting up. So the question is this: but where the hell were the learned Raj and all the other experts when we were six?
