When it comes to brushing the teeth, most people do it in the following way: they apply the toothpaste to the toothbrush, press it over the teeth in light circular motions, repeat it on the oral or inner surfaces of the teeth, spit out the toothpaste and rinse well with water.
However, this method of washing the teeth is partly wrong.
The toothpaste should be kept for a few minutes before rinsing to make the most of the health benefits of fluoride, which is found in most kinds of toothpaste and it's used to strengthen tooth enamel.
Rinsing immediately after washing will wash away concentrated fluoride and reduce its preventive effect, according to The Healthy.
Fluoride in toothpaste contributes to the reduction of tooth decay. Therefore, fluoride's role in maintaining good oral hygiene is of great importance.
So now it's advisable after brushing the teeth to spit out the toothpaste and then rinse it some minutes later. Do not rinse out the toothpaste immediately after brushing the teeth.
