Your dentist, Dr. Marco Gutierrez, strongly encourages you to brush your teeth every morning and every night with a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste. If you do these things, you’re on the right track toward a top-notch oral hygiene routine and a strong and healthy smile. However, if you want an even stronger smile, there’s one more thing you can do: Leave the toothpaste on your teeth in the morning.

This means that when you’re done brushing your teeth in the morning, don’t rinse your mouth with water. Spit out the extra paste, rinse your toothbrush, and go on your merry way. This will allow your teeth to soak in the fluoride toothpaste for a longer period of time. This lets the fluoride dive into the enamel and further strengthen the teeth. Make sure to leave the paste on the chompers for at least 30 minutes, and please don’t eat or drink anything during this time.

Now remember, this is only necessary for your morning routine because your night routine will involve flossing with dental floss and rinsing with mouthwash. The mouthwash should contain fluoride, and the fluoride will strengthen your teeth as you sleep. So, you don’t need to worry about leaving the paste.
