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.
