Fortunately, you do not have to pick one or the other.

Quiz Answers

  2. False. It’s very easy to avoid wasting water during your brushing sessions. Just remember to turn the faucet to “on” only when necessary (to get your brush wet, to rinse the brush and the sink, and to rinse your mouth). Turn it off between uses.
