Brush First, Coffee Second

Wellness Wednesday

Do you feel compelled to brush your teeth immediately after drinking coffee? The better choice is actually to brush your teeth first thing in the morning, then have your morning coffee!

Coffee is acidic and as saliva circulates, its enzymes break down the acid in an effort to return the mouth to a normal pH level. Your teeth need this recovery before the mechanical stress of the toothbrush. Rinse with Listerine® if you want to remove the coffee aftertaste or breath. This will keep your teeth strong and reduce coffee staining!
