Are You Using Too Much Pressure When You Brush?
It may seem counter-intuitive, but brushing your teeth harder doesn't mean that they will be cleaner. In fact, brushing with too much pressure can damage your teeth, and some of the signs that you are brushing too hard include:

• When the handle of your toothbrush bends with the excess pressure
• If you are using a brush with medium or hard bristles
• If the bristles on your brush fray quickly after getting a new brush
• If your gums are sore after brushing
• If your gums are starting to recede away from the teeth

While your teeth need to be brushed twice a day, brushing too much can cause dental health problems. If you need tips on the proper method for brushing your teeth, be sure to ask us at your next appointment so that your dental hygiene routine isn't causing any further damage.
