How long should you brush your teeth? 

At certain points in your life, cleaning your teeth could seem a little different. There

is no situation, however, in which you should avoid or forego cleaning your teeth. The

key to maintaining good dental health and a smile that lasts a lifetime is to brush your 

teeth at least twice a day for two minutes each time. Use a soft, kid-sized toothbrush, water, and a

rice- or pea-sized dab of toothpaste, depending on how old the child is. Brush your child's teeth

slowly, focusing on the sides, backs, and fronts. In areas where teeth have not yet erupted, clean the gums as well.
