Brushing your teeth is useless when you rinse.


Brushing your teeth is useless when you rinse.

You remove an active ingredient from your toothpaste called fluoride when rinsing after brushing your teeth.

Once removed, your teeth become prone to oral health problems such as tooth decay, gum disease, and acid erosion.

Even using mouthwash after brushing your teeth can still take off the fluoride.

Spitting is the only way to remove excess toothpaste without getting rid of the toothpaste’s fluoride.

The only time you should rinse with water is after flossing since it guarantees that all food debris left in your mouth is washed away.

Most of us have had the same routine for brushing our teeth since we were small and first learned the habit: brush, spit, rinse.

But even though it’s natural to have a strong desire to rinse out your mouth with water after brushing, it isn’t always recommended.

Toothpastes that contain fluoride and other ingredients meant to strengthen your tooth enamel might need a bit of extra time on the surface of your teeth for you to get their full benefit.

Let’s cover the pros and cons of rinsing after brushing, so you can decide if it’s time to make a change to your routine.
