    I brush mine for two minutes, morning and night, 7 days a week and use this 2 minute egg timer thing my dad got for my younger brother :-) Then. i use mouthwash afterwards.

    I brush my teeth 7 times a day, once a week, at 18 minutes each time.

    I brush my teeth for about 2-3 minutes twice a day. I think it’s not how long you brush your teeth but how you brush that matters. Of course brushing too long is bad too.

    One should brush vertically and not horizontally, starting from the gum. And yes, use minimum pressure or else you will damage the outer layer of the teeth.

    My hygenist told me to brush the gums as well, even if they bleed.

    I’m honest. I’m lucky if I spend 45 seconds brushing my teeth 2 twice a day. Dentist’s happy with them, they don’t hurt, aren’t crumbling, so I supose they’re fine

    i always brush my teeth more than 5 minute long because i feel really fresh after brushing…if i spend time lower than that i just feel like it’s not clean enough then i can’t close my eyes and sleep well that night ….i also use the mouth rinse after the brushing is done also….it helps a lot ^________________++
