Expanding on [Logicbird's answer][1], here is what the [British Dental Health Foundation][2] says:

> **Acidic foods and drinks, such as

> **Brushing immediately afterward wears

Their tips for avoiding dental erosion are:

 

> - brush teeth before breakfast if you    have fruit or fruit juice, or 
>    
> - wait one hour after eating or    drinking anything acidic before   
> brushing 
>    
>    
> - use a straw when drinking acidic    drinks to reduce contact with teeth 
>    
>    
> - drink water and milk between meals in    preference to juice and fizzy
> drinks 
>    
>    
> - chew sugar-free gum - this will    produce more saliva to help cancel   
> out acid in your mouth 
>    
>    
> - finish a meal with cheese or milk to    help neutralise any acids

The [NHS][3] says the same:


> Brush your teeth in the morning before
> breakfast and last thing at night
> before you go to bed (and ideally at
> least an hour after your evening
> meal). 
> 
> **Brushing your teeth straight after a
> meal can damage your teeth, especially
> if you've had fruit, fizzy drinks,
> wine or any other food that contains
> acid**. This is because tooth enamel is
> softened by the acid and can be worn
> away by brushing. Waiting an hour
> gives your saliva chance to neutralise
> the acid.
