I read in an article that proper oral hygiene requires 10 minutes of brushing and flossing every day and in another it is 5 minutes. how much time should an average adult should spend, so that to keep the teeth free of problems.
Are you going to take the average of all the answers?
That varies with almost every dentist and hygienist you ask - pick one and stick with it...
I've always been told 2 minutes brushing growing up.
I don't think it really matters, as long as you brush ALL of your teeth on both sides, then floss, then rinse.
Brushing your tongue is important too. Your tongue holds bacteria and that is where most of the bad breath comes from.
I would say 2 minutes though you are likely to find varying answers on the internet.
I wouldn't recommend brushing your teeth too long though, as this can have a negative effect on teeth and gums and do more damage than good.
Best to do 2 minutes of brushing and combine it with mouthwash and flossing for a complete oral hygiene routine.
no brushing for a longer duration will cause attrition of your enamel..its purely a misguide for brushing 10 min long..
as all of them don't proper occlusion or similar occlusion the brushing time varies in order to reach all the corners of the mouth with brush..on average you should brush up to 4 minutes..

Do you regularly brush your teeth at bedtime? (With the assumption you do brush in the morning!)
