It took me around 6 minutes or more to brush my teeth, as I had this technique learn in school on how to do proper brushing. I also brush even my gums and palate and obcourse my tongue. I also use dental floss and mouthwash so it took me a lot of time sometimes more than 6 minutes I spend in brushing my teeth.

For me it takes approximately 1-2 minutes with full speed, bcoz I have heard from some of my friends that u should atleast brush your tooth for 1 minute or more. If you complete brushing before 1 minute then the germs available in the mouth will not get destroyed and at the same time we should not brush more than 10 minutes. So the ideal brushing time will from 1 and
