Is there anything wrong with brushing my teeth immediately after drinking a soda?
I was brushing right after drinking my soda because I thought I was doing a good
thing, getting rid of the sugar. Turns out the acid in the soda was being
pushed down into the teeth by brushing! And where there is acid there is risk
of enamel erosion. You’re supposed to wait a half hour or so.
Yes waiting 30 min to an hour after eating or drinking anything acidic is smart because right after eating something acidic your enamel, the outer protective covering of your tooth is a lot softer and more prone to damage.
