Brushing your teeth is an important part of your dental care routine and it takes at least two minutes. To get a feel for the time involved, try using a stopwatch. That way you can physically monitor your time. To properly brush your teeth, use short, gentle strokes, paying extra attention to the gum line, hard-to-reach back teeth and areas around fillings, crowns, or other dental restorations. The proper brushing technique includes: placing your toothbrush at a 45 degree angle to the gums, gently moving the brush back and forth in short (tooth-wide) strokes and brushing your tongue to remove bacteria that causes bad breath.
