I went to the dentist yesterday. I never like going to the dentist, because I’m always sure I have 1000 cavities and gingivitis. Needless to say, I was nervous. My dental hygienist was very nice, however, and merely told me I needed to brush my teeth more.
Now, this is coming from a good place, I know, but I brush my teeth A LOT. Or at least, you know, twice a day and after meals if I’m home and I floss. Oh, I floss. So of course, being a good dental patient, I looked up exactly how long I am supposed to brush my teeth.
And I discovered, you are supposed to brush your teeth for about 3 minutes. 3 minutes, people. For those of you who don’t know, that is the approximate length of the song 4 Minutes. (Granted, the version with Timbaland is 4 minutes long, which I guess redeems the fact that the rest of the versions are a close 3 minutes.)
So folks, if you want to save the world (or just your teeth) turn up the “4 Minutes” (by Madonna and Justin, OR if you’re so inclined, by the Glee cast) and dance around your bathroom, brushing those teeth at a 45 degree angle, and make sure to brush your tongue.
