Smart Brushing Trumps Aggressive Brushing

Brushing your teeth is something you do every day. However, if you don’t do it properly, you may be doing more harm than good. Keep reading to learn some smart brushing techniques that are far better than aggressive brushing.

Are You Brushing Properly?

Many people choose hard-bristled toothbrushes. Not only that, but they also brush fast and aggressively. The logic behind this is that the hard bristles and the fast motions clean better. However, your teeth do not require the same type of brushing your kitchen tiles do. 

Your teeth and gums are much more delicate and, therefore, require smart brushing techniques. So, if you make the brushing mistakes mentioned above, keep reading to learn what you should change. 

Negative Impacts of Aggressive Brushing

Brushing the teeth should never be aggressive. You are not doing any good to your teeth when brushing them swiftly and vigorously. 

If you are too hard on your teeth when brushing, here are some issues you may be causing:

  • Weak and damaged enamel
  • Teeth sensitivity 
  • Gum bleeding
  • Teeth abrasion causing pain and discomfort

If you do not change your brushing habits, these are only some of the oral health issues you may have to face in the future.

Positive Impacts of Smart Brushing

Is there anything you can do to avoid the problems stated above? Yes, there is. You can start implementing smart brushing techniques. Some of the positive effects of doing so are:

  • Plaque will be removed more effectively 
  • No bleeding gums
  • No tooth damage 
  • Fresher breath
  • Consistent results

A dentist can help you learn smart brushing techniques. Here are some tips we want to share as well:

  • Brush twice a day and after meals if possible
  • Floss regularly
  • Change your brush every three months
  • Visit your dentist at least once every six months
