BRUSHING YOUR TEETH twice a day for two minutes is an important practice that helps keep your smile bright and healthy. But, does it have to be boring? We certainly don’t think so!
Using proper brushing technique for at least two minutes is necessary to ensure that all tooth surfaces are properly cleaned—and with braces, it’s more important than ever!
Sometimes we may be tempted to speed through our morning routine and brush a bit more vigorously to make up the difference. Brushing too aggressively, however, can lead to gum recession, tooth decay, or more serious oral health concerns. So, how do we make brushing for the full two minutes more fun?
Making brushing fun for you is one thing, for kids it can be even harder, especially if they’re not quite old enough for braces. So, what can we do as parents to help our kids enjoy those two minutes of brushing in their morning and nightly routine?
In the end, it’s all about doing something you enjoy while brushing. Whether it’s reading the news, watching your favorite TV show, or listening to music, brushing those teeth can be quick, beneficial and fun!
