Ideally, you should brush your teeth for at least two minutes each time, but it is very easy to over-estimate the time spent cleaning your teeth. If you use an electric toothbrush then it will have a built-in timer, but if you prefer a manual toothbrush then we recommend keeping a small timer in your bathroom.
It can help to imagine your mouth being split into four quarters or quadrants. Aim to spend around thirty seconds on each quadrant. Concentrate on methodically cleaning all your tooth surfaces before you move onto the next section in your mouth and don’t forget to floss!
