Why is it "se", & not "îşi"?

"Se spală" is the reflexive voice ("he washes himself").

A word-for-word translation of "El se spală pe dinți" would be "He washes himself on the teeth".

You can also use "își" to indicate possession of the teeth. Then the sentence becomes "El își spală dinții" ("He washes his teeth").
