Brushing and Humming

Posted .

Do you find it difficult to brush for the full two minutes it takes to properly clean your teeth? Brushing for those two minutes can do a whole lot of good to help you clean your teeth and guard your oral cavity against dangers like cavities and periodontal disease, so it’s important to do. To help you, here is a tip that you can follow during any time of the year, but one that’s most exciting during the holiday season.

To brush your teeth for two minutes, try humming a song or singing a song in your head as you brush. If you sing even just one song, you’ll be completed brushing by the time the song is done since most songs are at least two minutes. If you’re attempting this trick during the holidays, you may even sing a holiday song to get yourself into the holiday spirit! To help you get started with this habit, you might consider installing a music player or speaker in your bathroom to play the song during your brushing sessions.
