The Two Minute Rule

The Two Minute Rule

  • Use toothpaste with an ADA seal so you know its dentist approved.
  • Use toothpaste with added fluoride.
    Hold your toothbrush at about a 45-degree angle to your gum line while brushing.
  • While brushing your top teeth, start from the top of the tooth and work your way down.
  • While brushing your bottom teeth, start from the bottom of your tooth and work up.
  • Finally, don’t forget to brush your tongue or use a tongue scraper.

It’s also important to note that you should consider using an electric toothbrush, as they are more effective in removing plaque. They also generally have a timer on them so you know when your 2 minutes is up!

Talking with your dentist and hygienist about your brushing technique can be very helpful. They can also give you advice about an oral health routine that is specific to you and your lifestyle.
