Do you need to brush your teeth for 2 minutes
? How long do you need to brush your teeth? There are three reasons why we need to brush our teeth. First, brushing teeth removes plaque that causes gum disease and tooth decay. Second, the fluoridated toothpaste strengthens the tooth to resist cavities. Third, plaque removal maintains a pleasing breath odor
