After eating – The pH levels in the mouth drop and your saliva has a higher acid content. Brushing your teeth can rub these acids deeper into enamel of your teeth. You need to wait at least 20 to 30 minutes after a meal to brush your teeth.

Brushes with Soft Bristles are recommended: Hard-bristled brushes can wear down enamel and aggravate gums that might already be sore from a recent orthodontics adjustment. Soft-bristled brushes can clean just as effectively without doing this harm.
