Must be water on the toothbrush before brushing?

Hello, I would like to know if it makes any difference if you put water on the toothbrush/toothpaste BEFORE you brush your teeth? I am aware that it is best not to rinse the mouth after brushing, but it doesn't matter with water on the brush before ?
Thank you and with kind regards



Dear Hanne,

It really does not matter if you put water on the toothbrush before brushing your teeth, it is essential is that you yourself have touched on, not to rinse the mouth with water after brushing.

Hope you can use my answer.

With kind regards
