Hi I want to ask dat my kids drink milk at sleeping time in night after brushing their teeth. It can cause any dental problem.

Hi its better to give milk to your kids before brushing, because if they drink milk and directly go to sleep the residues are obviously going to get deposited on the teeth and thus it will lead to cavity problems.

Yes. You can't eat or drink anything except water after brushing teeth at night. Better to drink milk before brushing.
Yes, after having milk ask them for brushing.
Brushing should be done just before sleeping. You can drink milk and at last brushing can be done before sleeping.
