Dr. Olufunmilayo Adeniyi, a Nigerian health specialist, has urged individuals not to rinse their mouths with water right after brushing their teeth and following that, he has stated his reasons why.
Dr. Adeniyi agreed with a claim made by a health portal, Healthline, that rinsing immediately after brushing erases a lot of the benefit of applying fluoride to your teeth. In an interview with ‘Your View,’ a TV show on Television Continental monitored by The PUNCH, Dr. Adeniyi agreed with an assertion made by a health portal, Healthline, that rinsing immediately after brushing erases a lot of the benefit of flouride on teeth.
According to the medical professional, promptly rinsing the mouth with water after brushing reduces the fluoride’s protective properties (on the teeth) so people should not rinse their mouth immediately.
“We advise that you spit rather than rinse with water so that there is a bit left to act on,” she says. You won’t be able to retain all of the toothpaste in your mouth for two minutes if you brush for two minutes and spit in between.
“So you spit out of your mouth, rinse a little and repeat, and then spit out and wait for it to act.” You’ll notice that your breath smells better after rinsing.
It is suggested that you see your dentist at least twice a year, every six months. Some people are advised to see a dentist if they generate more filth or calculus in their mouths.
“Every pregnant woman should see a dentist on a regular basis during her pregnancy since pregnancy hormones have a negative impact on your gums and mouth.”
“Investing in a routine check-up is less expensive than waiting until it’s too late to get rid of something.”
The guideline is also recommended by the Oral Health Foundation of the United Kingdom.
“Leave the fluoride on your teeth while you go about your day,” it advised, “and try to avoid eating or drinking for at least 10 minutes after brushing.”
