Benefits of Brushing Teeth for Four Minutes a Day

Following the advice of your dentist and brushing teeth twice daily can improve your oral health. By brushing for at least two minutes each time more plaque will be removed, reducing cavities and tooth decay.

Key takeaways:

– Brushing teeth for less time means missed spots and more plaque left behind.

– Plaque can harden in to tartar which will need to be removed by your dentist.

– Four minutes of brushing a day is sufficient for most people as part of a good oral hygiene routine.

No matter how busy you are, you can spare four minutes to brush each day, along with another minute or so to floss at least once per day, too.
