Brushing within half an hour of eating a meal or drinking a cup of coffee could ensure your teeth suffer worse damage. After drinking fizzy or acidic drinks, the acid burns into the enamel of your teeth – and the layer below the enamel, called "dentin".

Brushing at the "wrong" time – particularly within 20 minutes of finishing a meal – can drive the acid deeper into your teeth, corroding them far faster than they would have rotted by themselves.
