How Long Should You Brush?

Morrisville 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 Cary Family Dental 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. Allan Acton of Cary Family Dental. 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 Cary, I invite you to come meet my welcoming team.

Our address is 1149 Kildaire Farm Road, Cary, North Carolina. We offer general and restorative dentistry, including cosmetic dentistry and family dentistry.

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