    While we are taught to wet-brush the teeth with toothpaste, dentists suggest that a combination of dry and wet brushing offer better protection for the teeth against plaque, cavities or gum disease.


    Before you use the toothpaste, use a soft bristle brush to brush your teeth without the toothpaste for about thirty to forty-five seconds. This type of brushing allows to you check if you have gum bleeding after brushing or check the area of the teeth being brushed, which is otherwise covered with frothy toothpaste. After dry brushing, wet-brush your teeth with water and fluoride toothpaste, for good oral breath and other benefits of the toothpaste.


    Happy brushing! :)

    Yeah angelvoice, dry brushing is especially good for reducing cellulite in the thighs and glutes.

    That's a good tip about dry brushing teeth. I remember my dentist telling by dry brushing we reduce the risk of gum bleeding by half. Especially the inner top and bottom teeth has to be brushed for those are normally missed during the normal hurry burry brushing!

    Normally I brush teeth with little tablesalt before having coffee. The toothpaste flavour spoils the coffee taste and it stays for more than half an hour, which I dont like at all. After having coffee normal brushing. Is this ok?
