Literally everyone has been given the advice to brush their teeth at least twice a day, preferably three times. This is safe and sound advice, however a lot of people tend to do it wrong and will brush far too hard.
In brushing too hard, you can end up not just getting rid of plague, but damaging the enamel as well.
The reasons many people tend to brush their teeth so vigorously is to ensure that they get polished. Unfortunately, this won't have the desired effect.
What Brushing Your Teeth Too Hard Can Do?What a lot of people may not understand about brushing the teeth is that you need to take a more delicate approach to it. Human teeth are unfortunately not as durable as animal teeth due to all of the processed and modified foods we have been eating for the last few thousand years.
The gums in particular are also susceptible to being damaged by your toothbrush. So, you need to be particularly careful when cleaning the line where the gum meets the tooth.
