Any advice on whether to use bottled or tap water to brush your teeth in Vietnam, Cambodia & Laos?

In terms of Vietnam and the cities in Cambodia, I tended to use tap water. In more remote, 'dubious' areas where I was less certain, I used bottled water.
Haven't been to Laos but might be inclined to err on side of caution and use bottled water. It's not a bit deal to use it and I always have it handy. Mind you, I still end up using tap water to rinse by brush usually, so I'm not sure what I'm gaining by using bottled water for the rest!
Yeah I always use tap water for my teeth. I am just rinsing. I hope my immune system is worth something. I haven't had a problem in all these years so far. The farther you get from the treatment centers the more I would use strictly bottled water. The treatment centers are usually closer to the city. The problem one official said in the paper in one country I was in was that the infrastructure to carry the clean water far, was dubious.
Thanks Rasheed and everyone else for the feedback. Hey Rasheed, maybe you should have used bottled water, may have kept more than one tooth :))
