When it comes to brushing, technique matters just as much as frequency.

Key takeaways:

– Brushing too hard can cause enamel erosion, which is evident in teeth discolouration or sensitivity.

– People who have gum disease and brush too hard can experience gum irritation and bleeding.

– Brushing aggressively will not make you less prone to cavities. In fact, the opposite is true.

If you are not sure about your brushing technique, ask your dentist for advice next time you go for a checkup.
