Brushing for Two Full Minutes is Incredibly Important

Posted on 12/10/2021 by Dr. J. Derek Tieken
Brushing for Two Full Minutes is Incredibly ImportantIf you want to keep your mouth clean, brushing is a must. Brushing helps get rid of bacteria and other food particles stuck in your mouth. Besides, it helps maintain a fresh breath by getting rid of the bad odor produced by harmful bacteria. Even though brushing is important, how you do it determines its success. It is recommended that you brush your teeth for two full minutes for the best results. Here are some of the reasons why brushing for two full minutes is important.

Importance of Brushing for Two Full Minutes

If you brush your teeth for less than two minutes, there are high chances that you are not cleaning your teeth thoroughly. While some people feel that two minutes is a long time, it is very important to stick to it because it ensures that you cover all areas in your mouth. Thorough brushing of teeth shouldn't only be on the outside surface but also on the inside. We recommend that you brush the inner surfaces like your tongue and the roof of your mouth. This is crucial because bacteria could also accumulate on these surfaces. Therefore, brushing your teeth alone and ignoring these surfaces will result in poor oral health.

You Need to Be Careful to Reach Everywhere

Cleaning every chewing surface is very important. This can only happen if you spend enough time brushing your teeth. Brushing for as few as 40 seconds means most of these vital spots will be missed. As a result, plaque will accumulate in these areas and harden into tartar. Once that happens, simple brushing will not remove it. This will need advanced scraping from our professionals to restore your smile.

However, you can avoid all that by simply brushing for two full minutes. This time is long enough for you to brush every part of your mouth. Schedule a consultative appointment with us for more information on why brushing for two full minutes is important for your oral health.
