Almost all people wet the brush and apply paste on it, or apply the paste and wet it with water before brushing their teeth. Then all this is a very wrong practice. .
Bacteria are just like any other living thing on our planet
unable to live without water. Therefore, bacteria on a well-dried toothbrush
does not multiply. But when the toothbrush is wet, the microorganisms stick to it
and then spread all kinds of bacteria to your teeth and mouth
becomes risky. Therefore, do not wet the brush before brushing your teeth
US dentist Robert Leil advised.
He also pointed out that after applying toothpaste to the brush, wetting it with water reduces the service life of the toothpaste by 50 percent. It’s a useless thing we do all the time.
In addition, it is also wrong to rinse your mouth with water while brushing your teeth. Because during tooth brushing, the microorganisms in the oral cavity are attached to the toothbrush. So get into the habit of spitting it out immediately and rinsing your mouth with clean water after it is completely expelled.
