Brushing and flossing twice a day is sufficient..... actually what matters more is the technique of brushing that you employ....
Visit your dentist every six months for preventive examination and also guidance about the proper brushing technique that you should follow.....
Brush how many ever times u want.but
(1) brush correct way, vertical motion
(2) soft bristle tooth brush
(3) a tooth paste which contains fluoride
(4) visit a dentist every 6 months to know your oral hygiene.
(5) there are few areas in your mouth (teeth) where brushes don't reach, u need a dentist to clean it.
(6) after every meal u can brush and floss, don't use much force that might abrade your tooth
You should brush your teeth thoroughly at least twice a day to remove plaque and to prevent tooth decay. Use a pea sized amount of toothpaste that contains fluoride. Fluoride strengthens the outer enamel layer of the teeth. It can stop a cavity in its tracks and give you more resistance to future cavities. Apply gentle pressure and brush gently in a circular motion.
Make sure your brushing routine lasts long enough to thoroughly remove plaque. We recommend that you brush for at least 2 minutes. You should floss your teeth thoroughly at least once a day to remove plaque from the areas that your toothbrush cannot reach.
Brushing usually done only 2 times and for 1 min only in vertical manner.
Flossing can be done after every food item u consumed or u can gargle with water if floss not available.

Brushing immediately after Neal can be hazardous to teeth. You should give an interval of atleast 30-45 min between a meal and brushing .
You can brush after every meal but do give that interval as in that time your saliva corrects the pH of your mouth .
