    5-10 minutes, depends.

    And most of the times yes (that is unless sometimes unexpected happens).

    Hmm... Do you know the proper way to brush your teeth though?

    If not, definitely ask your dentist to show you!

    5 minutes is ridiculous enough, but you have 10 minutes as your upper limit. What the holy **** do you do for 10 minutes? Are you hoping to fatigue your wrist muscles so you won't be tempted by debauchery? What is the reason?

    Couple of mins, and usually a couple of times a day, although I managed not to bring a toothbrush on my latest adventure! Oops

    I clean each and every one of them individually from all sides (IE in a three sided manner).

    That may be because my teeth have been weaker than you would expect from a person of my age, but I don't regret it one bit considering I've been able to preserve my teeth in a perfect condition.

    "Are you hoping to fatigue your wrist muscles so you won't be tempted by debauchery?" hahaha ... Nice one Callum

    Till there's no toothpaste left on a toothbrush, usually about 3-4 minutes. I do it only before bed because my mornings are awful, it takes me long time to leave warm bed let alone eat breakfast or brush my teeth :mmm:
