View Full Version : How do you brush your teeth ?

August 5th, 2011, 9:31 AM
My girlfriend brushes her teeth using hot water, she puts toothpaste on the brush, wets it and then begins to brush her teeth. I do the same thing except I use cold water.

What about you PC? Do you wet the put the toothpaste on, wet the brush or do you wet the brush first and then add toothpaste, furthermore, do you use cold or hot water ?

If you use warm water please select that you use hot water.

I used to put the toothpaste on the brush then wet it, but now I just put the toothpaste and start brushing.

I always brush my teeth after I wash my hands. Every. Single. Time. No matter what.

> Wash hands
> Get toothbrush
> Wet with warm water, and soften head with finger
> Open toothpaste
> Put toothpaste on toothbrush
> Wet again with warm water
> Brush, wetting it again every now and then as the amount of toothpaste fades.

Each time I brush my teeth, I brush multiple times (usually somewhere between 2 - 7 times)!

It's rather an obsession, you see.

I always wet my toothbrush with cold water then, put some toothpaste on and bush my teeth. That is just how I like it:P

I put on the toothpaste, add cold water and then brush. Who has the time to wait for hot water to come through the tap?

I get it wet, then add the toothpaste, and get it wet again. lol

Uh... I wet my brush with cold water then add toothpaste and start brushing my teeth. Usually for about 3-5 min. (used to be around 10 min. when I had braces on).

I put cold water on the brush, then toothpaste. And then when I brush in my head I separate my teeth in my head into a bunch of sections - front, underneath/ontop (depending on whether the teeth are top or bottom teeth), behind, in 6 different sections. :3 Then I do each one individually because the dentist told me I was missing spots last time I was there.

This is how an engineer brushes teeth; focusing on efficiency. xDD

Upon seeing this thread's title my immediate answer was "with a brush", lol. :x

Anyway, I can't stand spreading toothpaste onto a dry brush. Idk why, I just can't. And I also don't like a cold toothbrush in my mouth. So, I wet it with warm / hot water, then add the toothpaste, then brush.

Toothpaste on brush, wet with cold water. I don't like brushing with toothpaste that hasn't been dampened and I have never even considered wetting my brush beforehand too.

I wet my brush first with cold water and then add the toothpaste. I have no reason behind this other than habit.

Actually, first I attempt to floss and also use what's known as a SulcaBrush, and then I actually brush my teeth. Sometimes followed by mouthwash

I use an electric toothbrush

Toothpaste, wet brush, clean teeth for 6 minutes, be perfect.

I naturally turn on the faucet to cold water no matter what, put my tooth brush under it, and then put toothpaste on.

i spread the paste generously upon the bristles of my longtime purple toothbrush companion, then run it under water of whatever temperature it happens to be when i turn on the faucet. sometimes i brush my teeth in the shower.

Man you guys are awesome. I never expected to get feedback on this so thank you all!

August 7th, 2011, 4:48 AM
I usually just get my toothbrush wet with cold water,put toothpaste on it and then I brush, but I've never tried it with hot/warm water... I might try it sometimes. xD

Wet my brush with cold or hot water, put toothpaste, then again quickly wet it.

August 7th, 2011, 3:05 PM
Cold Wet. Toothpaste. Cold Wet again? Brush.

Wet brush -> tooth paste -> hot/cold water. (Whatever I reach first)

Ew, warm water!

My sequence goes: Toothpaste on toothbrush --> Cold water on toothbrush --> Toothbrush in mouth.

With a toothbrush.

I wet my toothbrush with cold water, apply toothpaste, and then wet it again.

I honestly don't know why I do that...it's just my routine thing...
