Also, you should be using dental floss to remove those small things that get stuck.
However, brushing your teeth in different ways will obviously lead to different effects. For one, brushing too much and too fast can make the condition of your teeth worse!
So, what happens if you brush your teeth improperly? Check the story below!
If you think brushing really hard is good, then you are wrong.
Brushing too hard as if you want to destroy your toothbrush can be detrimental to your teeth.
Brushing too hard will damage both your gums and teeth.
Going at it too fast and forcefully will likely damage your gums. You can even experience gum recession.
This is what you can do if you are brushing too strongly.
In order to ease the pressure you put on your teeth, try using a toothbrush with an angled handle.
Just don’t brush your teeth the way you wash your car.
A man named Chris Valenti did this for a long time, and he was forced to have eight gum grafts and pay a whopping $1,700 to have mouth surgery.
Many people actually have this problem called toothbrush abrasion.
When you brush too much, you damage your teeth and gums. When this happens, you develop sensitive teeth and gums that recede.
Thus, people who take too much care of their teeth are in trouble.
About 10 percent to 20 percent of people brush too much because they think too much about oral care and they use brushes with hard or medium bristles.
If you brush too fast, at least go for soft bristles.
Do not be fooled by any commercials saying medium or hard bristles are fine. They can damage your gums and cause wear on the root portion of your teeth.
Do not brush aggressively.
Instead, you should focus on brushing thoroughly. Removing plaque does not require speed.
Thankfully, proper brushing is easy to do if you are willing to follow the rules.
First, you should transition to using soft-bristled toothbrushes if you still haven’t. In addition, hold your toothbrush at a 45-degree angle towards your gumline.
Finally, do not slide your brush back and forth across your teeth when you brush.
The correct way is to apply short strokes instead of long slides. Also, use scrubbing motions and apply only a light amount of pressure when you’re brushing your gums.
