A clean mouth for up to 12-24 hours. This is the sound it is often in commercials for toothpaste and mouth rinses, but the claims made in the advertisements is often untrue. Therefore, many consumers around with totally unrealistic notions of what type of products can accomplish. It says leading dentist Bo Danielsen, who focus on the problem at Tandlægeforeningens was studying 2010.

A tooth brushing can not be replaced by a fancy product that promises gold and green forests. You can't make a shortcut to a healthy oral hygiene. You have to make a own effort to remember to brush his teeth thoroughly. Moreover, the fluoride in the toothpaste is the most important thing in order to avoid getting cavities in the teeth, says leading dentist, MBA, MIL Bo Danielsen from ST. petersburg, Dentistry in Aarhus. Bo Danielsen is among the presenters at the Tandlægeforeningens year course, which takes place 15.-17. april 2010 in Bella Center in Copenhagen.

Toothpaste and mundskyllevæsker can be to make brushing a little more comfortable and give a sense of purity and freshness in the mouth. But if it really were the case that these products could in itself keep the mouth clean for up to 12-24 hours, so we would dentists enough be informed about it, " says Bo Danielsen.

My advice to consumers: “Drop the high-priced products, brush your teeth thoroughly with a toothpaste containing fluoride”, emphasizes Bo Danielsen.

He put together with the dentist, ph.d. Alan Richards focus on what advice the dentists and tandplejerne can provide their patients about the use of toothpaste and mundskyllevæsker on Tandlægeforeningens was studying 2010.

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
