Yes, another one! Brushing properly is an incredibly important key, when it comes to ensuring that your smile and your teeth stay gleaming and healthy. And brushing long enough plays a big part in this discussion!
People tend to wildly overestimate how long they spend brushing their teeth, so it stands to reason that many aren’t actually clocking in a full two minutes, twice a day. Which is, obviously, not great. This recommendation exists for a reason. Letting left-behind food particles fester in between your teeth and gums is just asking for cavities.
The solution is simple, though! Set a timer for two minutes on your smartphone. Press “start” and go, go, go. Do this twice a day and, before you know it, it will become a part of your daily routine.
