Spit, don't rinse!

07 March 2013 . Posted by Laurelyn in Tips and Tricks

So we brush our teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste to help prevent the holes in our teeth called dental cavities.

Then we spit and rinse. Right?

Wrong. It’s a tough habit to break but what we’re really doing is washing away the ingredients in toothpaste before they can work on the tooth surfaces to strengthen them.

Spit well but don’t rinse for about half an hour to give yourself a mini-fluoride treatment.
