Brushing Teeth and Flossing

The issues: mema’rei’ach/ smoothing (as it is applied to teeth), sechita/ squeezing (water/ toothpaste out of brush), drawing blood, (nolad/ creating something new as the toothpaste changes form coming out of the tube)


The solution: Gargle with toothpaste/ use mouthwash and use a dry toothbrush. This is only if one is confident their gums will not bleed. One may floss if they don’t usually bleed.
