You mean those face bone things? Are you supposed to brush them?

Not right after eating that's for sure its bad for your teeth. I wait at least 20 minutes to an hour

I don't brush my teeth. Can't be bothered. This is why dentists exist. Sometimes i'll scrape the fuzz off my teeth with my fingernails if i'm going somewhere fancy.

Plaque is a figment of the liberal media and the dental industry to scare you into buying useless appliances and pastes. Now, I've read the arguments on both sides, and I haven't found ANY evidence yet to support the need to brush your teeth. Ever.

I got RID of my teeth at a young age. Because...I'm straight. Teeth are for gay people. That's why fairies come and get 'em.

I brush my teeth every morning and evening. Sometimes I brush a little more often as the food makes my mouth stink.

I brush before I shower after I eat like Americans do.

Same, plus I'll start a fluoride rinse before hopping in the shower. By time I get the shower started and finish lathering my hair it's about time to spit out the fluoride.

About an hour is good. The reason for waiting is that acids in foods can soften your enamel and make it vulnerable to damage from brushing.
After about an hour after eating the acids clear away and the enamel re-hardens.

(I bet a lot of people don't know that)

I've heard of that before too. What about when you wake up? Your mouth is the most acidic when you wake up.

I've heard it but it's just too inconvenient for me to wait an hour after breakfast before brushing. Besides, I don't think brushing in the car is a good idea.
