It looks like a dentist from London dentist has settled the TikTok debate, about when to brush your teeth, each morning.

Users of the social media app have been torn between advocating brushing before, or after, breakfast.

But Dr. Richard Marques, the dentist for stars like Rita Ora and Dua Lipa, says it doesn’t’ matter – as long as you wait the appropriate time, before or after eating.

Marques says that enamel is weakened by the acids in food.  So, you should wait at least thirty minutes after you eat.

If you prefer to brush before, you should wait at least 10 minutes before you eat; to ensure that the active ingredients in the toothpaste have had a chance to do their job.

The ADA recommends you brush after dinner, but before bedtime, each day, as well.
