should you brush your teeth after drinking sweetened tea or coffee?

Additional Details
eh, I brush my teeth MORE than 3 times a day. more likely 5-6!

It is always a good idea to at least rinse with water if you cannot brush to help prevent staining or decay---the problem is if you are sipping on sugary or acidic (diet) drinks. This causes an increased chance of tooth decay--it is the frequency of how often the liquid is in your mouth. Everytime you take a sip of sugary/acidic liquids, it starts a 20 minute attack on your teeth trying to cause decay. As a Dental Hygienist, I tell my patients that the only thing they should sip on is plain water--it is ok to have soda/milk/juice with meals. Watch out for the flavored water--they contain acids that can be more likely to cause cavities.

no....u'll get all of the nasties...off when u brush ur 5-6 times

You should because coffee and tea can stain your teeth. Just make sure you don't brush your teeth more than 3 times a day because it's bad for your enamel. Hope this helps.

If you don't want your teeth to stain, but you can't always brush your teeth every time you drink that stuff. So, try drinking everything out of a straw. I know it seems odd to drink coffee out of a straw but it works. That way it doesn't touch your front teeth and stain as fast.

If you drink sweetened tea or sweetened coffee you need to rinse with water or eat something with a basic pH such as cheese or a banana before you brush your teeth. If you don't the acidity will cause microscopic holes in your teeth. If you brush immediately after without neutralizing the pH you will brush the raised areas around the holes and end up taking enamel off. You don't HAVE to do this, you can just brush after but that is the Chemistry of your mouth.
