How Many Times a Day Do You Brush Your Teeth?

Brushing your teeth is about as basic as dental health can get, and paired with flossing, it's the foundation for cleaning your gums and pearly whites. It's a habit instilled in us from the time teeth make their first appearance, but how often we brush tends to vary from person to person. How many times do you brush your teeth each day?

I try to brush twice a day, but normally I forget at night and end up only brushing once. So once a day, minimum, but can be 2-3 times a day.

I brush AND floss three times a day. I have diabetes and was losing gum tissue 5 months ago and needed a 'deep' and painful cleaning. The dentist gave me two months to get things right. So, I brushed with Tom's toothpaste, flossed and used the crest total effects mouthwash after every meal and now my gums are coming back and look great. I also avoided the deep cleaning and only needed a normal one.

I have braces as well - so definitely at least 3 times a day, sometimes more especially when I snack

Two or three times a day. It all depends on whether or not my breath is stinky after eating out when I'm with my boyfriend if I'll have that middle brush.

When I wake up and before bed. :) In the morning it's only brushing, but at night it's brush, floss and mouthwash. And I've never had a cavity or anything. Yay!

Same here -- I brush and floss after every meal. I do not like food caught in my teeth, and how it still lingers on my breath. Oral hygiene is very important to me. Besides, hubbie and I kiss a lot, so this habit is good. :)

I usually only do it once a day, but I chew gum in between meals and I eat a lot of abrasive foods. It must work because I have excellent teeth :)

I used to brush twice a day, in the morning and at night. After I got braces it's after every meal or snack, because I hate the possibility of getting a cavity. The drill at the dentist's scares me so much.

Twice. After breakfast, and before I go to bed - just like my mommy tought me. In between I usually chew a gum after the meals. Works fine. I still have all my teeth. *lol*
