Question:

After having a meal, I rinse my mouth using the wash basin in the washroom. Is this considered to be rude?

I thought it is good oral hygiene practice to rinse ones mouth after every meal. But somehow I get this feeling that by North American standards this is kind of rude. I'm not sure, though. But then what is the alternative? At the same time, I have seen people brushing their teeth and spitting into the wash basin! But I believe that too frequent use of tooth paste in a day and brushing too many times is not good for the teeth. So I brush morning and night and rest of the time just rinse after every meal. If I rinse, I cannot swallow it, right? I need to spit some where!I would appreciate a balances answer, please!

Answer:

You can brush your teeth, or rinse them, both won't harm the teeth at al and if you have the mouth full of water you can spit it in the basin as always, this isn't rude at all..
