Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. You should not worry much about all these. The lubrication is intended to used for a short term at your age. I don't see you have a permanent lubrication problem. You can use ky jelly wihout worrying about long term effects because for you, you're going to use it for a short period. Take care.

Most kinds of toothpaste contain glycerin that may do more harm than good. The thing is, glycerin coats the teeth and prevents remineralization. Like bones, teeth are composed of calcium, phosphorus, and other minerals, which are all delivered to teeth through saliva. When these minerals cannot get in teeth, your teeth are not as strong as they should be. So, make sure you buy glycerin free toothpaste.
