Brushing your teeth should be done at least twice a day, for two minutes—once in the morning, and once before bed. A common mistake patients make is brushing too roughly: this can damage your tooth enamel and gum line, lead to quicker tooth decay. Brush gently, but thoroughly to keep your teeth in good shape.
Also remember to avoid brushing immediately after consuming any sugary, fizzy, or acidic food and beverages as doing so can cause further teeth erosion. Instead, you can rinse your mouth with water or fluoride solution to neutralise the acid and protect your teeth.
