The main aim of brushing is to remove the food particles that are stuck to your teeth after having food. Yes you can brush at night after dinner but remember to rinse with water after every food you have like breakfast, snacks etc.

You should brush your teeth with toothpaste atleast twice a day. Once in morning just after you wake up and second time at night after dinner. In between if you consume sticky food brush all your teeth gentley without toothpaste. And rinse your mouth properly.

Tooth brush to be changed every 2 months. Changing the toothbrush alone donot keeps your teeth clean. All toothpaste have nearly similar ingredients like Abrasives, Fluorides, Surfactants, Antibacterial agents, Flavourants, Remineralizers, Fluoride, Diethylene glycol, Triclosan etc. Only the wrong brushing technique that we follow harms our teeth and gums. So consult your dentist, learn proper brushing technique, Brush your teeth twice a day, up & down short vertical strokes, with ultra-soft bristles, indicator brush to protect your teeth and gums from plaque and calculus. Floss your teeth inter dentally once a day. Consume a healthy diet rich in vegetables and lean protein. Reduce your intake of sugary foods and beverages. Gargle your mouth thoroughly after every meal. Drink plenty of fluoridated tap water. Drink not consume alcohol drinks. Don’t smoke.

Ideally, you should brush your teeth before your 8-hour sleep schedule, as bacteria in the mouth are most active during this period. People who work in night shifts are also told to brush in the morning when they come back, before their hit their bed. The whole point is to prevent bacterial action during sleep. For people with a normal working schedule, brushing in the morning and then after dinner is advised.

Dear lybrate-user ideally the brushing is advised twice daily for maintaning a healthy oral hygiene. Once advised in the morning and the second is advised at night after meals. However to maintain a good oral health you may also use mouthwash, floss to get good results.
