How Long Should You Brush?

Orchard Homes Cosmetic Dentistry

Did you remember that brushing and flossing fights bad breath and removes stains?

If you have persistent stains that brushing can’t remove, get your teeth bleached at Felton Dental Care for a dazzling stain free smile.

The American Dental Association recommends two minutes as a minimum time for brushing. Most men and women think they brush that long but would be surprised if they actually set a timer. Most of us only brush for about a minute, if that.

I am Dr. Brett Felton of Felton Dental Care. In my office, we practice preventative dentistry by working with our patients to establish essential oral hygiene habits.
