For how long do you brush your teeth?

TOdays my BIRTHDAY!!!!!
30 minutes


john b
I always brush for 10 minutes, and then I floss afterwards.

nick w
until i clean all my teeth then i floss

2 minutes.

Sing "Happy Birthday" in your head three times.

about two min

atleast 2 minutes.

At least 3 mins.

twice a day

maybe 2 or 3 minutes

2-3 minutes

2-3 minutes

Jeanette M
at least 2 -3 minutes ...when you brush also use circular motions

3 minutes 2x per day. Need to do three, but no time in the middle of the day.

I brush mine until my SoniCare automatically shuts off.

Munya Says: DUH!
I sing Happy Birthday twice while brushing the uppers, and ditto for the bottom, so altogether, Happy Bday gets sung 4 times.
I dont know if that's 2 minutes or not, but it seems to work for me.
(I'd sing "Born to Run" or "Blinded by the Light", but I just cant remember all the words, ha ha!)

3 minutes, I have my digital Mickey Mouse timer to make sure I do it for the time..no I'm not a kid...I'm 46! lol;

the dentist told us when we started our kids brushing to get a timer and set for 1min since then we try to brush for about 1min

I think i recall it was sing the ABCs twice.

Three minutes. I use a mini hour glass. I want to keep my teeth. LOL

Depends on the type and condition of your teeth. If you have brittle teeth, its better not to brush too long (more than 2 mins). If teeth are in good condition, you can brush at least three minutes. Moreover, its not the time taken to brush, but the coverage provided thats importent. Spend some time on the teeth along the sides and in the back.

If you are using a hard brush, lesser time spent will be good. In case of softer bristles (recommended), you can spend longer time.
