First timer here.. I don't know this situation has been asked/shared before or not, but I couldn't find any similar question online.
So I have read the recommendation that better we do not rinse after brushing teeth and just let the toothpaste do its work for 30 minutes before rinsing/eating/anything.
I have been doing that. I make sure to also spit excess toothpaste. However, I always feel this dry sensation in my mouth. Why? Because I also read that, in addition, it is not recommended to swallow/ingest the toothpaste..
So for more or less 30 minutes, my mouth does nothing..not even swallowing saliva because I know I will swallow the toothpaste. And when the duration ends, I suffer from this dry sensation..and just go on to quickly rinse by water and hope the suffering ends. This of course keep repeating twice everyday.
If it is only 15 minutes, I think I am fine..but yes, I am such a strict person following scientific-looking recommendation strictly. So if it is recommended for maximum benefit that:
- Don't rinse for around 30 minutes, just spit out excess toothpaste after brushing.
- Don't swallow toothpaste.
Then I do just that..and that dry sensation inside my mouth is unavoidable.
Is there any solution to this?
Thank you very much for the help and suggestions! Really appreciate it!
EDIT: Some sources (but the thing is I also don't know the reliability):
On not rinsing?
On not swallowing (in large amount of course)?
Nevertheless, my main thing is not mainly about criticizing each source, but about asking the better advice here. Thank you.
