Rabbi Yossi Mandel: Hello. Please be patient, as I am chatting with more than 1 person. I'll be with you shortly.

kosherman: i try to bee very careful about keeping Kosher, but is brushing your teeth before you transfer from meat to dairy and vice-versa too much?

Rabbi Yossi Mandel: yes, you do not need to do that

kosherman: even if I have braces and I know that food gets stuck in my teeth?

Rabbi Yossi Mandel: yes

Rabbi Yossi Mandel: after the six hours of waiting it is not considered food anymore

kosherman: ok great, thanks so much!

kosherman: that was just the answer that i was looking for!

Rabbi Yossi Mandel: glad to be of help
