Brushing Teeth on Shabbos

b’h’i

If one uses a liquid toothpaste on a dry toothbrush and one is not usual to bleed from gums would this then be permissible to brush teeth on shabbos? is there no problem of sechita with a liquidy toothpaste?

Answer:

If water is not used, it is hard to imagine a problem of sechitah, and it would be permitted to brush teeth in this manner.

Please see the halachah and sources mentioned in the following post: https://dinonline.org/2011/05/22/toothpaste-on-shabbos/.
