Brushing your teeth needs to happen at least twice a day, but to help your oral health the most, it’s important to brush correctly. Most people forget how long brushing should take or forget part of their mouth when brushing. If done correctly, brushing can help fight cavities and keep your mouth healthy between visits with us.

Our dentist, Dr. Casey Witty, knows that your brushing habits are important. That’s why our team at Witty Family and Cosmetic Dentistry in Nicholasville, Kentucky, want to help you know more about brushing.

Brushing your teeth should take at least two minutes. To make sure that you brush this long, use a timer. Another fun option is to listen to a song that is at least two minutes long, and make sure you brush the entire time.

During those two minutes, make sure you are brushing your entire mouth. The front, back and eating sides of teeth all need to be brushed. To help fight halitosis, bad breath, you can even spend some of your two minutes brushing your tongue.

Brushing can keep your mouth healthy, but it is important to meet with our dentist for a checkup. Please call us today at 859-881-4633 to make an appointment. We look forward to hearing from you.
