You hear us tell you over and over that your brushing has simply got to last two minutes. When you’re not on target, you are either going overboard and aggravating your oral health or you’re undershooting it and you’re missing plaque that requires removal. So, how to make sure you’re on track with this area of your family dental care? It’s so very easy. We have simple suggestions to make sure you hit the two-minute mark on the dot.
Use A Sand Timer
Call it a sand timer, an hourglass, or whatever you’d like. In any case, when it measures two minutes, it’s going to help you make it through the brushing part of your family dental care at home without wondering if you’re really brushing for the right amount of time. This age-old measuring device is often beloved by kids who love getting to be the designated “flipper” to get the sand going!
Use Your Phone
Yes, if you’re going to make it as easy as possible, particularly when you’re brushing solo, all you have to do is whip out your phone. Get to the timer, set it for two minutes, and start brushing. Remember that as you become more familiar with how long two minutes really is, it will give you a better instinctual feel for how to brush all teeth equally over the course of designated time.
Use A Song
When we’re talking family dental care, it’s often a good idea to try to make every detail more fun. Kids and adults alike can really get into brushing along with a song! It might make you smile, you might want to dance, and it will certainly make the two minutes go faster. Figure out the point in a song that’s the two-minute spot and you’re good to go.
