I brush my teeth every day, but I'm never sure how long I should brush my teeth for. What's the minimum amount of time I should brush my teeth?

Hi John,

Thanks for your question and welcome to Empowher. A little research about this subject indicates that most Dentists prefer at least 2 minutes of brush time twice a day and flossing at least once a day. Take care of those teeth. Hope this helps.
