The answer to this question may seem pretty commonsensical, but I thought it was usual to brush teeth after breakfast until I met somebody who brushed their teeth before eating.

When do you brush your teeth?

I always brush after eating.
To be honest, it makes good sense to do it before, and after.
Nothing like a clean healthy mouth....which is prone to germs.
No I brush my teeth after breakfast, and then again at night before I go to bed, but not necessarily after each meal.

I generally brush after I eat except in the morning after I get out of bed.
I brush mine after breakfast and last thing at night before going to sleep. My husband likes to brush his teeth when he first wakes up but it just seems silly to me as then he's walking around all morning with breakfast on his teeth! For some reason, this doesn't bother me after lunch....
Right when I wake up ( hate morning breath ) and just before I go to bed at night.

After breakfast and tea. I thought to myself why before, but it could be a good point when you wake up in the morning. I usually have a glass of water to rinse my mouth out
Brush morning & night. Whether it's before or after a meal, isn't a consideration by me.
Sometimes before, if my mouth feels really dirty. It makes the food taste better.

I'm a bit of a rabid brusher and actually got told by my dentist to lay off a bit :(( "aggressive tooth brushing" he called it. I always brush after food and always before I go out . . . . I try to be good but I just can't face anyone if I feel I have unclean teeth.

I only brush my teeth after breakfast, if I'm going out for the day, & after dinner, before I go to bed.
