How Long Should You Brush?

Long Sious Cosmetic Dentistry

We all know that brushing and flossing fight bad breath and remove surface stains.

If you have persistent stains that brushing can’t remove, ask us about teeth whitening options offered at Cornwall Dental Arts – Family and Cosmetic Dentistry for a dazzling,┬ástain-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.
