No: The temperature of the water should make no difference when you brush your teeth. The most important thing for brushing your teeth is proper technique. Make sure you brush all the surfaces of your teeth, getting along the gum line especially. Also, be sure to floss when you are finished brushing, as this will clean the surfaces between your teeth where your toothbrush can't reach.
