How Many Times A Day Do You Blink Your Eyes
Every 10-15 seconds: The average person blinks roughly once every 10 seconds. This is a reflex that we can control to a degree (we can stare and decrease the blink rate for a minute or so, or blink rapidly on demand). The tears that lubricate our eyes normally evaporate after 10-15 seconds; blinking "pushes" new tears onto the eye's surface before all the previous tears have evaporated. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

2-3 times: Hi. What is most important is that you take your time brushing to do a thorough job. I ask my patients to brush at least 2x a day but to make sure you are taking your time to remove as much of the plaque on your teeth as possible with a soft tooth brush. Don't forget to floss once a day as well! :). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What do you suggest if my spouse has mg and takes lengthy naps multiple times throughout the day whenever his eyes get "droopy." is this normal?
More to consider: If you have intense bad breath, i doubt that merely brushing and flossing after every meal (which is the ideal) would resolve your issue.

What do you suggest if I use a computer all day at work, can staring at a screen for long periods of time cause a strain on your eye and produce a twitch in your eye lid?
Too much LED: Watching too much led light is not going to make you go blind. However, it can cause your eye muscles to get tired, just as if you exercised for hours and your leg muscles got tired. That is eye fatigue.That in turn can cause eye twitching, just as muscles in leg can twitch if irritated/overused. Take 5-10 minute breaks every hour when using these types of technology to prevent this. ...Read more
Do Not Rush To Brush: The old answer is twice a day after meals however, there has been a significant change that we should all know about, and that is that we should wait to brush for about 1 1/2 hrs to 2 hrs to allow saliva to reconstitute the outer layer of teeth. Many foods are slightly acidic fruits tomatoes wine vinegar, and not to mention sodas of all types. These all etch the teeth exposing the protein matrix which is the supporting framework for the enamel crystals. Brushing off this matrix reduces the ability to recrystallize the enamel where it has been etched by the food. Saliva you see is a rather amazing liquid which is a supersaturated solution of calcium salts. Saliva actually regrows the etched enamel crystals. So here is the secret, rinse your mouth well after eating to remove loose food particles and neutralize acid remaining in the mouth, wait an hour or so then brush and floss properly. Dr neil mcleod dds dentistry that lasts - quality that counts. ...Read moreSee 5 more doctor answers

If your contacts are old or you have been wearing lenses for a long time, you may be developing dry eyes. A detailed eye exam would be the best next step. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Are you supposed to floss or brush first or does it really matter? Also how many times a day should you floss?
Floss then brush: Ideally flossing first will remove the plaque and food debris that sticks to the sides of your teeth and brushing will remove that and the plaque that builds on the front and back. Floss twice daily would be ideal. Key and best results are from doing both twice a day. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Mouth rinse use: How often you should use listerine/other mouth rinse depends on what you want to achieve by use. If it is simply to add more thoroughness to your home care, 1-3 times daily right after brushing is an expected maximum.
