By adhering to the “2+2” rule, patients can improve their oral health. Most dentists recommend that at least “two” minutes of tooth-brushing is required to thoroughly clean teeth. Although, many people think they are following the two-minute tooth brushing regimen, actual timing of their routines may prove otherwise. If necessary, patients should use an old-fashioned egg timer to time themselves. Flossing is a must at least once a day because it reaches between your teeth where toothbrush bristles cannot go. Regarding regular visits to the dentist; “two” visits a year is acceptable for most patients, while visits every three to four months is preferable to those with bridges, crowns, or a history of gum disease. Your personal satisfaction with your oral health and appearance is most important.
