Hum to Clean Your Gums

Posted .

Do you find it difficult to brush for the two minutes recommended by most dentists? Brushing for those full two minutes can do a whole lot of good to help you clean your teeth and shield your oral cavity from dangers like cavities and periodontal disease, so it’s imperative to do. To help you, here is a tip you can use at any time of the year, but one that’s most fun during the holidays.

To help you brush your teeth for a full two minutes, try humming a song or singing a song in your head. If you sing even just one two-minute song, you’ll be done brushing by the time the song is completed because most songs are longer than two minutes. If you’re trying 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 placing a music player in your bathroom to play the song during your brushing sessions.
