Jingles For Brushing
December is a time when most Americans break from their normal routines, and take time to celebrate, reflect and enjoy the traditions cherished since childhood! How many of you attend the Nutcracker year after year? Maybe you have feasts, or bake your favorite cookies and treats. Do you play special Christmas music or carol around your neighborhood singing your favorite holiday tunes?
As you break from your normal activities, it may be time for you to take inventory on your regular routines to make sure you’re performing them properly. Brushing is one technique you need to re-evaluate to ensure you are offering yourself optimal dental care at home.
As a general rule of thumb with your brushing your teeth, 2 by 2 is the rule. Brush two times daily for two minutes each time. Two minutes might seem like a long time to brush, but it’s important that you work your way around every surface and area of your teeth and tongue. Brushing in the morning cleans away all of the plaque and build up that occurred over night. Brushing before bed cleans away all of the food buildup that has occurred during the day. Two minutes is a reasonable amount of time. Here are a few ways to help you measure the amount of time you’re brushing during each time.
Set a stopwatch in your bathroom to see what amount of time you usually spend on brushing.
Did you know the song “Jingle Bells” is almost two minutes long? Consider humming to this song as you’re brushing to help you measure the time that you’re spending on brushing.
