You should not brush your teeth after drinking wine, here’s why

Wine and brushing should not go hand in hand

If you have a habit of brushing your teeth after drinking wine, this might be a good time to say goodbye. While wine comes with a string of healthy benefits, the combined effect of drinking wine and brushing teeth could lead to a lot of problems.

Doing so could lead to the loss of enamel of our teeth and replacing it could be a big headache. The same was revealed in a study published in Nutrition Research and it also notes that the level of acidity in wine could lead to slow dental erosion.

“It was demonstrated that white wines have higher erosive potentials than red wines. Within the limits of this study, it can be predicted that a frequent consumption of white wines might lead to severe dental erosion.” The study said.

The ways to avoid this would be to avoid brushing the teeth within one hour of drinking wine. Also, consuming more calcium rich food could be a great way to keep the teeth healthy.
