During Fasting Brushing of teeth with or without Tooth Paste?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by
It is allowed to brush our teeth when fasting with or without tooth paste? If not, how do you get rid of bad breath so people are not uncomfortable around us? Please keep in mind I am not talking about siwak (tooth stick).

(Fatwa: 1251/847/L=11/1434)

There is no harm if one brushes the teeth without paste. However it is makrooh to brush with paste during fast. If the particles of the paste enter inside then fast shall break. Hence one should avoid using brush with paste in the state of sawm.
