Everyone’s day starts a little differently, but hopefully yours incorporates a thorough dental care regime. That means brushing your teeth for two minutes; using short, gentle strokes as you go, paying extra attention to the gumline and hard-to-reach areas; and cleaning the outer, inner and chewing surfaces, as well as your tongue – all with a fluoride toothpaste like BioMinF. Oh… and doing so before you eat breakfast.
You may be surprised to hear it, but the best time to brush is before you tuck into that all-important first meal. This is because eating causes a build-up of acid in the mouth, which temporarily softens your enamel. Common breakfast food and drink, such as fruit juice, makes the environment even more acidic.
By brushing when your teeth are in this vulnerable state, you can sweep away the soft enamel and cause more harm than good.
However, it’s also recommended that you don’t eat or drink for half an hour after using fluoride toothpaste – so our suggestion is that you kick-start a healthy day by heading over to the sink as soon as you wake up.
Discover a toothpaste that protects your teeth while you eat There’s no doubt that cleaning before breakfast is better for your teeth. But there’s another great reason to do so with BioMin F.
Unlike conventional toothpastes, BioMin F toothpaste can protect your teeth during an acid attack, making it perfect for use before you eat or drink.
The bioactive glass it contains gradually dissolves during brushing – faster so in a low-pH environment – releasing phosphate, calcium and fluoride ions that work in harmony with saliva to restore the equilibrium. This smart response means that if you consume anything acidic after its use, your mouth remains safeguarded.
So before you next brush, take a look at the time, choose BioMin™ F and guarantee healthier teeth and gums. Do you clean your teeth before breakfast? If not, will you consider doing so now? Let us know your thoughts on our Twitter and Facebook pages.
