30 Bananas a Day!

So I'll cut to the chase right away. Regarding when one starts raw 100%, I have a few questions when it comes to the "dental hygiene" part of the equation.

1. Should I continue to use toothpaste and mouthwash or should I just use water and skip mouthwash? (I use Tom's of Maine fluoride free toothpaste and their mouthwash atm) 

-Or when should I change to just water for brushing?

2. Should I floss on this lifestyle? Right now or down the road a few months? 

3. I've heard that people re-mineralize their teeth on 80-10-10. How long does this take for most people? And once you do re-mineralize your teeth, can you stop brushing (and flossing?) altogether?

4. Is there anything I should be concerned about besides what I asked in the other questions that you could tell me?

Thanks all for the help everyone! Always appreciated!

I rinse with water and floss after every meal, and brush with soap (Dr. Bronner's unscented bar) twice a day.  All toothpastes that I know of are made with abrasives and chemicals, even the "natural" types.  For me, soap is easy to use and inexpensive, and leaves my mouth feeling clean and fresh.  It takes a few times getting used to not swallowing it, but the taste isn't really that bad if you rinse it all out, and it's much more gentle for sensitive teeth.

Any other tips from others that have lived on the lifestyle a few years? Still a bit confused as to what I should/shouldn't do.

I've been raw vegan four years, lfrv for two years.  

Awesome! Thanks for the tip :) sorry if it seemed like I questioned it. Just like lots of opinions :)

I have the same questions.  I would love to see some replies to this by experienced people.
