  1. I would brush after one hour. I always recommend waiting at least 30 min to an hour after meals/acidic drinks because acids weaken tooth enamel, and taking a toothbrush to teeth recently exposed to acid could scrub away and damage enamel. I recommend drinking your coffee side-by-side with a water that has a pH of 7 or higher (neutral or alkaline, to help offset acids in coffee) and also rinsing with water to prevent coffee staining. By brushing after your coffee, you’re going to do a lot to prevent coffee staining, which is great — but just remember to wait 30 min to an hour before you do.

    To get it right.
    * Firstly, in the morning, you brush your teeth to get rid of your 120 billion microbes that have grown in your mouth and on your teeth overnight, giving you the “breath” and “smell” also.
    * 30 minutes after the brushing, rinse with water and have your coffee and breakfast.
    * After breakfast, wait again for 30 minutes to brush your teeth to get rid of your coffee and breakfast taste. Then, wait for 30 minutes before rinsing with water to give the fluoride time to work on your teeth. Now start your day with a clean and fresh mouth.

  4. Well I’ve never heard that and I do drink coffee after brushing, if I want to. This is a short answer and someone else gave you a much longer answer with exclamation. That answer is also correct.

  5. I would wait ten minutes then brush. Get a good toothbrush that works off batteries and you will never go back to the manual type.

  6. If you drink your coffee black then it is just fine to brush afterwards. If you add sugar to your coffee then you might want to wait for about an hour.

  7. If you use a nano-hydroxyapatite toothpaste with a neutral pH and a gentle toothbrush (such as an ultrasonic one), I would brush my teeth right after drinking coffee, especially strong black coffee. The toothpaste will help accelerate neutralizing the pH in your mouth, and the nano-hydroxyapatite crystals will help turbo-charge your saliva with the naturally formed crystal floating around in it.
    If you use a regular toothpaste, at least be sure that it has a neutral pH and be very very gentle on your teeth with our toothbrush in order not to remove more enamel than what the acid coffee did.

  8. Is the concern tooth stain before your next professional cleaning ? Many people complain about the lower front tooth stains. Hygienists find coffee stain attached to the soft plaque and hard calculus found there. So have 4–6 month professional cleanings, and floss very skillfully, especially on your lower front teeth. You will become stain free and assist your dental hygienist.
    In the morning I quickly brush my lower front teeth on both sides to rid them of the overnight plaque before coffee. I rinse with water right away after coffee. Then, I do my regular brushing after breakfast to keep my teeth clean always. I use a pea size amount of toothpaste or baking soda then. Mouthwash is necessary for some people, but not all. Water, salt water, and half strength hydrogen peroxide are great for rinsing teeth too. They don’t burn your tongue so much as a strong mouthwash sometimes will, and it’s refreshIng.

  10. The people who drink more coffee have an increased chance of yellowing teeth. Without a proper schedule of drinking coffee, the stain can grow faster and remain permanently. So, it is better to brush after the coffee but its okay. Dr. suggest to teeth your brush 2 times a day.

  11. The actual purpose of brushing is to keep teeth perfectly clean healthy. Therefore, it is better to brush teeth twice-a-day. You should brush them gently for about 2 minutes in the morning before breakfast and for the same duration after dinner at night. It is because brushing teeth at night after dinners help remove all types of food that get stuck in our teeth. More importantly, it doesn’t into harmful bacteria. The chances for bacteria to originate in your mouth get reduced to almost zero. You should brush them in the morning too. It helps to make sure your teeth are absolutely fine and your mouth is free of bacteria that are harmful to your dental/oral and overall physical health too.
    Coming to the point, coffee contains a lot of pigments that can stain your teeth easily. So you shouldn’t let this happen to your teeth. It is because stained teeth lead to issues like cavities, tooth decay, gum problems that further go on to cause deadly diseases like diabetes, heart attack, brain damage, Arthritis, Rheumatoid, kidney issues and erectile dysfunction etc.
    So, you should clean them immediately after drinking coffee. You can rinse your mouth for this purpose. If needed, use of the best electric toothbrush available in the market is also a good option.

  13. Either before or you can do it after, but wait at least one hour – brushing too soon can wear down your enamel, coffee is pretty acidic so you must allow your saliva to do the job of balancing the pH in the mouth. If you don’t have one hour, buy some Xylitol gum/”candy” and chew/suck it for some minutes after drinking, this helps with pH problem enormously.

  14. I would brush after coffee cause coffee leaves a bad after taste and makes your breath smell really bad. Also, brushing afterwards rinses of the sugar on your teeth (from the coffee) hence preventing tooth decay.

  15. It’s best to brush after, but not too soon after. You should wait about 20–30 minutes after consuming something acidic before you brush. You could inadvertently do damage by brushing the acid into your enamel. I typically advise to rinse with water after you drink coffee. Then brush after 20 minutes.

  16. There are many bad effect of coffee if you brush teeth after drinking coffee.
    Teeth Staining : Staining is, by a wide margin, the most well-known impact of brushing teeth in the wake of drinking espresso. The finish on your teeth is permeable which implies nourishments and beverages that are dim in shading can experience it and the impact is obvious stains.
    Presentation to Harmful External Forces : Another destructive impact of brushing your teeth subsequent to drinking espresso is that it will open your teeth to progressively hurtful outer powers. The peril of brushing following espresso is that you’ll finish up cleaning without end corrosive mellowed layers of your polish with your toothbrush, which is terrible. When you drink espresso that is now exceptionally acidic, your teeth are at a significantly greater possibility for toothbrush scraped area.

  17. Great question! Right up there with whether to brush before or after breakfast! I agree with the previous answers, but if you are talking about first thing in the morning, who has that much time to wait before heading outvote door to work? I know I don’t! So I suggest brushing before, then enjoy your coffee, then a thorough rinse-out with water. The other methods described are technically better, but if you can’t wait that long, this is the best alternative!
