How Long Should You Brush?

Watkinsville Cosmetic Dentistry

Did you remember that brushing and flossing fights bad breath and removes stains?

If you have persistent stains that brushing can’t remove, get your teeth bleached at Glenn Alex DMD for a dazzling, stain-free smile.

The American Dental Association recommends two minutes as a minimum time for brushing. Most men and women think they brush that long but would be surprised if they actually set a timer. Most of us only brush for about a minute, if that.

I am Dr. Alex of Glenn Alex DMD. In my office, we practice preventative dentistry by working with our patients to establish essential oral hygiene habits.

If you are looking for a a family dentist in Athens, I invite you to come meet my personal team.

Our address is 140A Trinity Pl, Athens, Georgia. We offer general and restorative dentistry, including cosmetic dentistry and general dentistry.

And here’s a quick cold-fighting tip for my Athens patients: get a new toothbrush when you catch a cold. A toothbrush teeming with germs can re-infect you!
