One of the common mistakes many people make when practicing their oral hygiene routine is when they rinse after brushing their teeth. When you do this, you’re getting rid of all the helpful fluoride that’s on your teeth that can help prevent cavities and tooth decay. Instead, you’ll want to spit out the toothpaste, but leave any residue in your mouth.
