She said brushing right after meals does more harm than good as the acids produced by the foods we eat tend to wear away the protective enamel, and during meals, the acid level gets heightened, leaving the teeth in a vulnerable state.

She said the saliva is responsible for washing away food particles away and restoring balance to the enamel; hence brushing right after meals means that you are attacking the enamel in its most vulnerable state as you are likely to brush it right off. So, it is best to wait a while after eating before brushing your teeth.
