do you ever feel the little fuzzies on your teeth?

Was watching the commercial bout using a regular tooth brush and how it leaves fuzzies on your teeth.... I brush till I don't feel them. Is it that hard to brush your teeth? Why do they try to make it like we are so dumb? Or like we are so lazy to take a min. or two to brush our teeth properly?

  • as long as you can say your abcs twice in your head you brushed long enough... brushing too hard can ruin your enamel so be careful

  • I was guilty of brushing too hard (like the first poster cautioned against) and now I have difficulties because of it. I am more careful now.

  • I use a battery powered Oral B toothbrush which comes with a built in timer. It turns off after 2 1/2 minutes.

  • I have a battery powered one. And my teeth actually do feel cleaner. The dental hygienist asked me once if already had my teeth cleaned when she was cleaning them. And, it massages, from the vibrating. My mouth feels good after I brush my teeth. It was only about $6, and the refill brushes are actually less then some regular brushes.
    But yes, I do feel the fuzzies. And they are gross!
