I'm curious.

How many times a day do you brush your teeth?

Twice a day is what I reliably manage. I have a chewing-gum-after-lunch habit which helps a bit.

2-3 times, usually 3

LOL at the first response. My first roommate in college said she brushed her teeth when they felt "fuzzy".

I do 2 times, sometimes 3.

Two always or three if I feel like it.

2, but I always check them before I leave the house to make sure they aren't gross.

2 times.

2 minimum. Depends on the day. If it's hang out at home day, 2 it is. If I have somewhere else to be in the evening/ late afternoon, I brush and floss before that too.

definitely twice, but usually more - i usually brush each time before i go out of the house.

I try to keep it to twice a day.

I used to obsessively brush my teeth. I brushed a lot with a really hard toothbrush (yes, I am sure it was a sign of something ;) ). I did a lot of damage to my gums and have to be careful not to overbrush.

I've been checking back here just to see if anyone actually voted for the mossy option. And lo and behold, there is ONE vote for none. Ok, what now? Either someone's got dentures, totally joking and voting there to be a dork, or it was a goof.

2 - 3 times a day. I use Tom's of Maine and feel like the fresh taste/feeling wears off sooner than when when I was using Crest.

I'm at least 2, but usually 3 and sometimes 4. It just sorta depends. I always brush with a regular brush in the morning and use the sonicare toothbrush and floss at night. I brush first thing in the morning, so I'll sometimes brush after breakfast or after lunch.

Evidently I brush quite a bit. I never really noticed that before.

On most days, I only brush my teeth once. In the morning after I eat

DH thinks it is so gross that I don't brush my teeth before bed.

I must have good teeth genes since I got my first cavity at the age of 35.

Lots of votes for once a day, but only 1 comment.
I regularly only brush once, when I wake up. I will sometimes brush before bed if I feel I have things in my teeth (popcorn, steak etc), but have found my mouth feels gross when I wake up. Weird.

generally 2, but if i'm leaving the house mid-day i'll brush again before i leave...or whenever i leave the house.

as for the kids, i have them brush after every meal...i figure it's a good habit to get into!

I voted one.............but it's really 1-2 times.........it just depends on the day, and how tired I am. Sometimes I'll just brush in the morning and do mouth wash before going to bed.

Still no one fessing up for the mossy option, huh? I doubt those votes are for real.
