Who has tried drinking orange juice after brushing their teeth???

It's not the taste that gets me, it just dries my mouth out.

That's because the basic sodium fluoride in toothpaste is meant to coat the teeth with calcium fluoroapatite, which dissolves at a pH of about 4.5. That means your teeth won't corrode as much because it would take an acid with a pH lower than 4.5 to break through the coating. Toothpaste also gets on your tongue though, so it affects your taste buds. Then when you drink the acidic citrus juice, which also contains vitamin c (another acid), it reacts with the basic residue left over from your toothpaste. That's what gives you the weird taste in your mouth. ;-)

me and ... it's nasty.

Doesnt taste very good huh? LOL


I flinched just thinking of it.

it's gross. And so is smoking a cigarette right after brushing. Gotta eat a salty chip or something before orange juice or a smoke.

I have. Drink the juice first, then brush.
