Does the fast break when you use a wet miswaak, & brush your gums, the water then separates from the miswaak & a little slides down your throat? Also can we use "miswaak" toothpastes during fasting?
1. If you are certain that water went down your throat unintentionally, your fast is broken. A Qadhaa will have to be offered after Ramadhaan.

2. No, it is Makrooh to use any form of toothpastes or powders whilst fasting. If the paste slides down the throat, the fast is nullified.

and Allah Ta'ala Knows Best

Question:
Is it permissible to brush one's teeth using toothpaste when fasting? As far as I know, it is permissible as long as the toothpaste is not swallowed. Please give your input on this.


Answer:

Praise be to Allaah.

Shaykh Ibn Baaz (may Allaah have mercy on him) was asked about using toothpaste whilst fasting. He said: there is nothing wrong with that so long as one is careful to avoid swallowing any of it, just as it is prescribed in Islam for the fasting person to use the siwaak (tooth-stick)

Fataawa al-Shaykh Ibn Baaz, 4/247

Shaykh Muhammad al-Saalih ibn ‘Uthaymeen said:

… This leads us to the question: Is it permissible to use a toothbrush and toothpaste whilst fasting or not?

The answer is that it is permitted, but it is preferable not to use them because the toothpaste is too strong and may go down into the throat. Instead of doing that during the day, one should do it at night.

Al-Sharh al-Mumti’ by Ibn ‘Uthaymeen, 6/407, 408

better to be safe than sorry, and prevention is the best cure so better not to brush during fasting
and i read in a hadith that to allah the breath of a fasting muslim is better than the smell of musk
