5. Ask Your Dentist For A Toothbrush Recommendation
When your toothbrush bristles become old, you might end up with your teeth feeling quite sensitive. You’ll notice this, mainly when you are drinking something that is hot or something cold. What other negative impacts can hard bristles have in your mouth?
Hard bristles also contribute to your gum line wearing down. When you visit your dentist, ask them to recommend which toothbrush type you should be using and listen to their advice. They’ll know the condition of your teeth and gums to advise you correctly.
4. Your Teeth Are Sensitive
Another thing that shouldn’t be hard for dental health is the force you apply when brushing your teeth. Your teeth won’t come out cleaner because you brushed them harder, this isn’t helpful to your teeth.
Dentists recommend that you use a gentle brushing technique to clean your teeth. You may think that brushing harder will allow you to get rid of more bacteria, but the harder you brush, the more damage you can cause in your mouth.
3. Spend Enough Time Brushing Your Teeth
The next brushing habit you need to get into tonight is not brushing your teeth too fast. Brushing our teeth is something that we need to take a moment out of our day to reap the rewards of a healthy mouth for years to come.
Don’t just set aside one minute in the morning and one minute before bed to brush your teeth – this is a big mistake. Did you know that on average, people only spend about 45 seconds brushing their teeth? This action isn’t enough time for it to be an active process.
