i brush once a day at morning time. although i know that we should brush our teeth 3 times a day. but i have no too much time to do so. thats why i brush once a day. i have just read this that i want to share with all of myoters here. How You Can Keep Your Teeth Healthy Kids can take charge of their teeth by taking these steps: * Brush at least twice a day - after breakfast and before bedtime. If you can, brush after lunch or after sweet snacks. Brushing properly breaks down plaque. * Brush all of your teeth, not just the front ones. Spend some time on the teeth along the sides and in the back. Brush away from your gums. * Take your time while brushing. Spend at least 3 minutes each time you brush. If you have trouble keeping track of the time, use a timer or play a recording of a song you like to help pass the time. * Be sure your toothbrush has soft bristles (the package will tell you if they're soft). Ask your parent to help you get a new toothbrush every 3 months. Some toothbrushes come with bristles that change color when it's time to change them. * Learn how to floss your teeth, which is a very important way to keep them healthy. It feels weird the first few times you do it, but pretty soon you'll be a pro. Slip the dental floss between each tooth and up along the gum line. The floss gets rid of food that's hidden where your toothbrush can't get it, no matter how well you brush. It's also important to visit the dentist twice a year. Besides checking for signs of cavities or gum disease, the dentist will help keep your teeth extra clean, and he or she can help you learn the best way to brush and floss. It's not just brushing and flossing that keep your teeth healthy - you also need to be careful about what you eat and drink. Remember, the plaque on your teeth is just waiting for that sugar to arrive. Eat lots of fruits and vegetables and drink water instead of soda. And don't forget to smile!

I brush twice daily. Once in the morning and night. If I've eaten something that I know will discolor my teeth badly, like Oreos, I will brush after eating them. I don't like to let it set and settle in my teeth. Just a cavity waiting to happen.

I brush twice a day. Teeth is something an important part of our body. I use to brush only once in my small age. And later I developed an habit of brushing twice a day. One time soon after I wake up in the morning and other one when I go to sleep. Also my dentist advised me to brush twice a day. Also I brush whenever I eat something and that sticks with my mouth. Brushing twice a day is a good habit and I believe its very good for the teeth.

I brush twice a day, sometimes even thrice. I try to practice brushing after every meal but sometimes, with so many things to do, I do not get to brush my teeth after lunch. But it's a MUST for me to brush in the morning and before I sleep. In fact sometimes, I wake up in the middle of the night and I feel like brushing. LOL!

I don't brush my tooth but I am brushing my teeth because I want all my teeth to look clean. It depends on the circumstances regarding the number of times that I brush my teeth. Sometimes, I brush my teeth three times a day; at times, I do it four or five times a day. But most of the time, I do brush my teeth at least twice a day= in the morning and in the evening after dinner. Good day.
