How long should you really brush your teeth? You may have learned growing up that you should brush your teeth for at least two minutes. But if you’ve been using that as your only benchmark for brushing, it may be time to adjust your habits. The truth is, you need to brush your teeth in a way that ensures that all the surfaces of your teeth have been reached and cleaned by the toothbrush. After you brush your teeth, it’s important to floss to make sure you clean in between teeth. Also, try to avoid brushing your teeth for a half hour after drinking anything acidic like citrus juices or carbonated beverages.
