You should always brush your teeth straight after you have eaten.
This is not strictly true and can cause long term problems, what you will actually be doing is brushing whatever you have just eaten and drunk all over your teeth and gums. When we eat and drink we produce saliva this acts as a buffer between our teeth and any bacteria, but this also causes the PH levels in our saliva to drop below normal and make tooth enamel softer so any brushing at this point is harmful as you will be pushing the acid left over from eating deeper into the tooth enamel. Bacteria are caused from the acid left on our teeth from our food and drink and cause cavities. It is recommended that we wait at least 30 minutes before brushing our teeth after eating and drinking.

Cola can dissolve teeth
This is untrue and dates back to 1950’s when a professor made claims that due to the 3 acids in cola that it could dissolve teeth. Leaving your teeth in a glass of cola would not do them any good, but would also not dissolve them, it turns out that there is more acidic content in a glass of breakfast orange juice then there is in a glass of cola.
